The Bug Squad Team has been a “ghost” Team for a long period of time, then in March 2019, an Election was held and I had the insane idea to self candidate myself to lead the team.
Joomla Events Team started the year with a very small budget of $15,000 and so we had to put some measure to ensure that we could support only the event that really needed support. We tried to engage the organizers to know for certain they needed financial support. One of the important things we emphasized was that organizers had to submit a financial report first before they could qualify for the fund support.
Early in 2019, Vikas Pisal was elected as team leader of the Volunteer Engagement Team (VET). In the following months he started creating a number of process documents for the team to expand on: VET Mission, Strategy, On-boarding, and FAQ. His main focus was on a new on-boarding process for teams to use. As many teams were not aware of the VET, there was a battle to gain awareness of its goals.
The two main JCP teams, Operations and Marketing, and the Platform and Exam Team worked closely together on the fulfilling the goals as defined in the strategy for 2019 and those from June team sprint in Amsterdam where we were joined by Rowan Hoskyns Abrahall and Marco Dings.
