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.
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?
The GSoC department is excited to inform the Joomla community of our successful application to be a mentor organization for the “Summer 2021 of Open Source Promotion Plan” with the Institute of Software Chinese Academy of Sciences.
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.
There are two circles. One represents all the things that I care about. The other represents all the things over which I have control. The circle of things that I care about tends to be quite a bit larger than the one that I have control over. This is true of almost everyone.
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.
