Consider this your invitation to join us on Saturday, the 16th of March, for Pizza, Bugs, and Fun.  It's an all-day global event that's open to all virtual participants that are interested.  There will also be local venues wherever they are organized, including at Joomla!Day Boston.  The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 and Joomla 2.5 bugs as possible before Joomla 3.1's release, which will be on or around the 25th of March, and Joomla 2.5.10's release.

This Bug Squash event is a great opportunity for intermediate to advanced users to learn how to contribute to Joomla bug fixes within the community.  You do not have to be an expert coder or even a coder to contribute;  all we ask is that you are familiar with running Joomla on your localhost before the event and that you consider yourself at least an intermediate user.  We will provide you with the help and documentation that you need to test the Joomla patches (i.e. fixes), so please join us this weekend and help us to make Joomla better!

Detailed information about the event can be found in the wiki at,_2013

We also had an enthusiastic audience from far corners, and all of them were more than willing to soak in every bit of the knowledge the community wished to impart.

Joomla! goes to CeBIT 2013

CMSGarden - The Open Source CMS Garden Festival at CeBIT 2013

In September 2012 I got a call from Stephan Luckow, who is President of the German Drupal Association called "Drupal-Initiative". He told me about his idea of presenting all interested Open Source content-managment-systems at a common stand at the CeBIT 2013 event. CeBIT is the world's largest IT trade fair and takes place in Hannover, Germany, from March 5 - 9, 2013. He asked me whether I would like to represent the Joomla! project during the planning phase and work as a "hub" to inform the national and international Joomla! community about the project called "CMSGarden" - and of course I agreed immediately.

One could ask why I agreed to help in the project. The answer is quite simple: I strongly believe that every single participating CMS can benefit a lot from it. CeBIT is the world's largest trade fair for computer and internet technologies and offers us a unique possibility to reach people who are using internet technologies in their business every day. But even more important to me is this: a common project of multiple Open Source systems helps everybody understand that we're not really competitors. Instead, we have to be aware of the fact that our real competitors are closed source systems still used in web projects all over the world. We are one "big family" and should exchange our ideas, opinions and lessons learned so that everyone can benefit.
