Leadership Highlights July 2015

While summer vacations are gradually arriving for part of the world, another part enjoys the coolness of winter. Our worldwide community is as diverse as the seasons in the world. And while we stay focused on our software instead of rainbow colors, everyone is equal and welcome to collaborate in our community.

Leadership Highlights May 2015

It’s been awhile since the last leadership update was published in the Joomla Community Magazine. But that certainly doesn’t mean nothing is happening in leadership... on the contrary.

A Thank You to CloudAccess.net

About 5 years ago Open Source Matters decided to start a demo program and put out a call for an RFP to hosting companies. For almost four and half years Cloud Access has hosted this service for the Joomla project. It is something that now comes to an end. OSM and the Joomla Community want to express their gratefulness to the team of Cloud Access and say...

Leadership Highlights October 2014

Work in Progress - Though the sign might be annoying from time to time when you see it, at least you know it’s there with the ultimate goal to get something improved. And as much as we wish to get things right from the start on, we all know that help is needed to finally achieve that perfect goal.

Leadership Highlights September 2014

September - while the leaves have not left the tree yet, the change of color that provides an astonishing picture is also the sign that change is ahead. Only two months before a huge part of our community meets at the Joomla World Conference (JWC) in Cancun, Mexico. Only four months for Joomla 2.5 to become end of life.

Growth, improving, expanding! Is the status of the Joomla! project meeting its demands? Where do we want to go and why? What will Joomla look like in 10 years? And where will we be on an international level?

Pizza, Bugs and Fun in The Netherlands

It’s 6:00 a.m., my alarm tells me to wake up. Not a normal time for me at all to wake up and travel to the other side of the country. But that’s just a small sacrifice for a full day of fun with a lot of people, while contributing to the project and then finishing the day with a nice pizza.

Leadership Highlights June 2014

For an online community and project, meeting the people you work with face-to-face is the best way to give your project and community a huge boost. Coming home from JandBeyond 2014 and feeling energized to move forward is what all leadership team members present at the event felt after the three days of joint meetings and trainings that took place in the days before the event.

Leadership Highlights May 2014

May is the month when we see our seeds planted in earlier days come to flower. It looks like this is not only happening in nature, but also in our project. A shiny new version just released, a shiny new board of Open Source Matters, eager to turn the page to a new exciting chapter for the Joomla! project.

Leadership Highlights March 2014

If there is one thing we never have to worry about, it is the vibrancy of our Joomla! community, and how involved our community members are, on topics of all kinds, and even better, all over the entire world!

Joomla! CMS, Joomla! Framework, en Licenties

Het waren drukke dagen de afgelopen tijd binnen onze community zoals je die voorheen niet veel zag. Twitter draaide overuren door de feedback vergezeld van de Joomla! hashtag, en dat is mooi. Het is goed om de community actief betrokken te zien, zelfs over onderwerpen die gepassioneerde discussies veroorzaken. We zijn allemaal leden van dezelfde community.

Leadership Highlights February 2014

Already a month has gone by in this brand new year of 2014. After the leadership took a little holiday break, as you all hopefully did, they started the engine in full mode with (re)new(ed) energy.

Zet deze datum in je agenda

Het is weer zover. De tijd van het jaar waarop je begint met je agenda te vullen en je evenementen te plannen. Ik weet het, eigenlijk had je het al op 1 januari willen doen, om het jaar gelijk goed te beginnen. Je was waarschijnlijk van plan om in 2014 te zorgen dat je al je taken, projecten en je agenda volledig onder controle zou houden. En nu, voordat je op adem bent gekomen is het alweer februari. Ik kan je ook niet vertellen hoe dat kan, maar zo gaat het altijd - nu dus ook weer. Maar geen zorgen, maak je niet druk en geef vooral je goede voornemens nog niet op. Het is nooit te laat om te beginnen met plannen. Precies de juiste tijd dus om een belangrijke gelegenheid met je te bespreken.

Leadership Highlights September 2013

Goodbye and hello. When things come to an end, like a season, saying goodbye and welcoming the new is what we do. We say it at events and we have to say it in the project from time to time. It doesn’t always have to be sad to say goodbye and most of the time it is followed by a hello to the new.

Leadership Highlights August 2013

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy.... That would give the impression that we’re slowing down a bit and enjoying some sunshine. The part about enjoying the sunshine might be true but when it comes to slowing down? On the contrary!

On the road.... Usually this headline can be found at the end of the article about what is going on in the Leadership Teams every month.

Leadership Highlights - May 2013

Project News, that is what this article is tagged under. But it could easily been tagged under a lot more tags. Like ‘International’ and ‘ Work in Progress’ or how about ‘Dynamic’ or.... Regardless of the number of tags, it is a sure thing we participate all under one and the same Joomla flag!

While 2013 is already 2 months old it’s time to look back, review the progress made on the goals of last year and think about new goals or updates. But first of all let’s get our Joomla versions updated!
