Joomla 4.0 is on the horizon, but over 200 bugs and feature requests are untested, which means, they cannot go into the Joomla core. As a main rule, new functions for Joomla have to be tested before they can be merged into an official release. Usually it takes only a few minutes and Joomla becomes better and better.
Since a few years, we have an event called "Pizza, Bugs & Fun" (PBF) where everyone can learn about executing such tests. Open issues will be tackled together, tested and marked as ready for release. At the same time, sponsors take care that nobody is starving.
There is nothing like pizza!
Yep, you’re right. You will learn, get pizza and a hellloads of fun. In return you will operate with new knowledge and help to make Joomla better and more stable. This will be the first PBF which concentrates exclusively on Joomla 4.
The good news: everyone can join!
- If you’re a beginner, you can start with easy error reportings or improving the documentation.
- You’re a more advanced user? Perfect, then you can directly start with testing feature requests (called pull requests).
- And if you’re a programmer, you can solve existing issues by yourself. So for every skill level we have interesting tasks.
- You have never worked with Joomla 4 before? No problem, we will offer preconfigured installation, so you can start without any administration effort.
Where is the pizza?
We perform this event in Germany, Austria and Switzerland at different local Joomla User Groups.
The date is fixed: September, 8th 2018, at 9:30 am.
Currently Munich (as initiator), Augsburg, Frankfurt, Gießen, Freiburg, Hamburg, Koblenz, Cologne, Nuremberg, Zurich and Vienna are confirmed. To get in touch to the different User Groups, check out joomla.de.
You would like to participate but you don't have a user group nearby? Or you are Joomla User Group and want to join? Just do it!
There are very small requirements:
- You need a room with WiFi access
- You need some Joomlers equipped with a laptop and motivation.
Of course, you can also join from home, but where is the fun without the community and the pizza?
And what about the bugs?
Bugs are unresolved or undetected errors. For many bugs we have already a fix, called “Pull Request”. In addition, missing language strings or description have to be fixed.
Don’t miss out all the fun
Meeting Joomla people, working together to resolve the bottle neck on missing tests, that will be fun. Then, you’ll want to keep on contributing to the Project and do further testing in the future.
