- JET Recipients for JAB15 Announced!
The Joomla Event Travel Programme (JET) is pleased to announce that we have selected 12 members from the worldwide Joomla community (Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Mexico, Israel, The Netherlands, and USA) to attend the upcoming J and Beyond Conference being held May 29-31, 2015 in Prague, Czech Republic.
With 39 applications to choose from, it was a difficult decision that was made easier because of the criteria point system that was put in place prior to the call for applications.
- Community Feedback on the Proposal for a New Organizational Structure and Methodology
Because the Joomla! project has a great community, the goal is to empower more volunteers to effectively contribute by increasing transparency, communication and trust. Over the past several years, a majority of the leadership has supported the review and study of governance, convinced that our current organizational structure and methodology are not optimal to move our community forward.
Last October the Structural Team, entrusted by the joint Joomla leadership to produce a proposal for a new leadership structure for the Joomla project, shared their work with the combined project Working Groups for their feedback. This version of the proposal is the result of that feedback.
Now we are seeking feedback from the community as a whole on the proposal for a new organizational structure and methodology. Read the proposal here: New Structure & Methodology [Proposal] - Google Doc
You can share your thoughts and comments about this proposal in this public forum thread: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=704&t=880994 or you can email directly to the structure team
- New Year, New Energy, New Goals for Joomla Certification
2014 was an amazing year for the Joomla! Certification Project. In the past year we’ve gathered leaders and team members from across the world, launched a successful pilot program at the Joomla! World Conference 2014, cultivated serious discussions with the Joomla community and have moved closer than ever to a viable, live professional certification for Joomla! Administrators.
In that time, we’ve also learned how not to do a few things. Our missteps and failures have pushed us closer to a seriously awesome resource for our community, and we’ve grown stronger as a team. We would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone that has played even a small part in getting us to where we are now with the Certification Project. However, we still need more enthusiastic people helping to get the project done. If anyone in the Joomla community has a desire to be a part of this team, we would love to have you join us. For more information about how to get involved, see the end of this article.
