Every year in August the Institute for Information Sciences located at the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen in Gießen, Germany organises the Web Programming Weeks. The Web Programming Weeks are also known as WPW and lasts two weeks. The aim of the WPW is to give students practical experience working on real-life issues and at the same time help out the Joomla! project.

In the past two years, Joomla's outreach has grown beyond the usual JWC, JAB and JoomlaDay's by working with several hosting conferences. Joomla's first experience at HostingCon Global 2016 gave us great insight into the current perception of the project, fantastic advice from media and hosting experts, and opened the door to new sponsorship for the project. This one event showed us how important our visibility outside the core community could be.

The Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED) lists nearly 8000 extensions - finding the best one for your website can sometimes be a tedious task. We have all selected an extension that hasn't been quite right for our needs. This article will cover tools available on JED that will aid your search, things to watch out for and tips to assist in making the right decision.
In this issue, Sandra Thevenet takes us on a quick tour of the Joomla! Documentation website. She oversees and contributes to the creation, edition of the documents, as well as their translations into several different languages. If you have a question about Joomla, this is the first place you must go to.
