Joomla! User eXperience (JUX) Webinar
Written by Gary Brooks

You're invited to learn about the future of the Joomla! User Interface!

Until the upcoming release of Joomla! 3.0, Joomla! has lacked a common User Interface (UI) for components, which has led to an inconsistent User Experience (UX). The Joomla! User eXperience (JUX) group is hosting a free & live webinar on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at 16:00 - 17:00 pm UTC (click for your local time) to illustrate how the new common UI, based on Boostrap by Twitter, will affect and benefit the Joomla! community. Register Now! Space is limited.

Joomla Roadmap Meeting held at J and Beyond

We incorporated Joomla Roadmap meetings as part of the J and Beyond conference held in Germany recently. The Joomla Roadmap meetings are part of an effort to help organize and encourage the efforts of volunteers and to move Joomla development in directions where the community wants to go. Thanks to the coordinators and volunteers whose work makes this a success!

These meetings were structured to be working meetings where we could take actual steps forward to accomplishing goals that people were interested in. We started with several lightning talks on topics as diverse as Update & Migration, Multi-site, User Experience, JavaScript, Unit Tests for the CMS, Search, Unified Content Model (UCM) and Web Services. The following morning we held breakout sessions for people interested in each of these topics, followed by recaps of what was accomplished and what the next steps were that the groups would be taking.

Each of the groups comes together as a Production Working Group. You can find more information on the groups at including how you can join the effort.

The Registered Joomla User Group team are pleased to announce that we are making some changes to enhance the relationship between the team and JUG coordinators.
* We have made a gallery page for the people in the team know who we are and what their special skills are.

* We are tweaking the JUG directory to ensure it stays up to date and is easier to handle that includes removing the deadwood and locating JUGs who have lost their way a bit.

* The rules are being translated to native languages similar to the German and Spanish ones already made. If you can assist in any way, please let us know.

* We will organise a regular JUG news spots and ask groups to have a general round up in the Registered JUG Google group. We suggest all sign up with the group,

Other behind the scenes improvements are :

* Have an ideal  7 day response limit from application to approval. (But this is not possible in all cases).

* Update and rebuild the JUG welcome pack
Thanks for reading and commenting in the group .
