As a co-founder of Joomla! and OpenSourceMatters Inc I've never been known to be lacking an opinion or being too afraid to express it.
Despite what some people might think I'm a shy and modest man who doesnt like to blow his own trumpet or boast about achievements.
You don't need a badge to polish to contribute to Joomla you just need to roll up your sleeves and do it.
Just another Brazilian nut
