Leadership Highlights from March 2012

Written by | Sunday, 01 April 2012 00:00 | Published in 2012 April
Joomla! downloads hit the thirty million mark in March - get DOWN with Joomla!  

Cheaper than a lottery ticket and a sure-fire win

The Mega Millions lottery isn't the only group tossing around big numbers this weekend. How about 30,000,000 Joomla downloads? Every day we win big with Joomla... and it's free!

Safety first

To keep all those downloads humming along and protected, it is important to upgrade every time a safety release is produced by our steadfast Production Leadership Team (PLT) and all of the code contributors. In March versions 1.5.26 and 2.5.3 were made available (confused about version numbering? Read this!) Thanks team, you keep the streets of the Joomlaverse safe for all of us!

Tome Sweet Tome

Another sizzling book about Joomla is out, this time for programmers, written by Joomla superstars Mark Dexter and Louis Landry. You can be sure those two have got the inside story! Learn Joomla programming with the proven best practices for getting the job done right.

In the summer time, when the weather is hot

2012 will be the  summer of code for Joomla... as in Google. Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a fantastic opportunity for students to put their cutting-edge coding skills to work under the mentorship of experienced Joomla community members. Read about it and get involved!

Don't be late… nominate!

Nominations for up to 3 positions on the board of Open Source Matters are open. Please take a few minutes to read over the targeted qualifications and skill sets, and put the name forward of someone who you think would make an important contribution. Thanks for helping shape the leadership group overseeing the financial, legal and trademark areas of the Joomla! project.
