Many companies use Joomla as the basis for their business. It's in everyone's interest to make Joomla work well. So Work4Joomla, allowing staff to work on Joomla and improve Joomla while at work is an initiative to do just that.
So many people in the Joomla community have hidden talents. They have the skills, software or resources that someone else needs to get something done, but they may not want to go steady and join a team or commit to lots of hours. Likewise, people need a little help but don’t know who to turn to finish a task for Joomla. So how can we bring the talent and the need together? Here is how you can be part of Help4Joomla.
Do you sometimes wonder who the people behind the scenes are putting Joomla together? Most of the time it's users like you who have decided to give a little bit of time - answering a form post, translating some language strings, writing some documentation or perhaps testing some patches. Here's how you can give some Time4Joomla.
With the release of Joomla 4.0, Joomlers - Joomla's hard-working volunteers - are as important as ever. Whether you're completing an occasional task to support the project, a regular contributor to a team's activities, a member of a team or working group, right through to the various levels of leadership in the organisation, I thank you on behalf of Joomla and look forward to many years of contributions to come.
Since September 2021 each month in the Joomla Community Magazine the Volunteer Engagement Team have been promoting roles that need staffing throughout the Joomla project. We're keen to find people, as well as find out why we're not finding people. Can you help?
I may be reaching a little bit here with this reference to a song released before many of us were born, but I felt it was appropriate and I’m sure you’ve heard. It just so happens that the English singer/songwriter, John Robert "Joe" Cocker OBE, who wrote the song was born on May 20th.
In America, April is National Volunteer Month where we recognize and celebrate those who give of their time and talent to help others. As a volunteer-driven organization Joomla! would not exist without them/us/we, the volunteers that work hard to manage, build, create, enhance, document, translate, market, and so on.
Psst! Have you heard? Joomla! 4 is coming. Yeah, I know that you’ve heard that before, but it’s TRUE! Earlier this month Joomla 4 Beta 7 was released and you know what that means?! It means that a Joomla 4 Release Candidate is dropping soon, and where there’s a release candidate, a new Joomla release is soon to follow. To get over the finish line, we need a hand, make that several hands to get things done. There’s a saying, something about many hands, making light work, or something like that. We could use MANY hands to write, test, bugfix, market, document, translate and more.
