The Joomla! Certification Program is now live and we had 4 exam sessions held since its launch on last September. The whole certification program was designed from scratch with so many processes involved such as creating and maintaining questions, managing test centres (known as Joomla! Learning Partners), creating a secure a platform to deliver the exam and others. First, four exam sessions revealed what are the steps need to be taken next!

Google Summer of Code is now over. Amazing three months I worked with the amazing team of Joomla. Learnt a lot and had much fun. My project was “Recording Actions Logs, Accessible by Super Admin” which I wish would be a good addition to the Joomla project.
At the start of the project my proposal was to add the previous 1.x feature of Joomla of creating a menu item directly from the component view in the newer versions of Joomla. During starting weeks me and my mentors discussed what approach to take to add such functionality. The decision was to make it between using helper function or using Plugins. In my proposal I had suggested to use the plugin method using various trigger event. So it was decided to first add the functionality for only article view(On-the-fly) version, after that the functionality can be made generic using plugin. So basically the method that I proposed at starting was used to achieve the final goals.
