We are pleased to announce that we are hosting Pizza, Bugs and Fun on Saturday, October 19th. This is worldwide event that brings together the Joomla! community to document and test future versions of our favorite content management system (CMS). You may be thinking that this event is not for you because you're not a hard core developer, but WAIT! This event is for EVERYONE - newbies, implementers, designers, developers, literally everyone.
This year's event expects to have 500+ participants worldwide. You can be one of them! The cost to you is your time, talent, community spirit, and maybe even your waistline with the free food.
What is the event PBF
You may have heard PBF tossed around the Joomla! community. PBF stands for Pizza, Bugs and Fun. This event otherwise known as "Joomla! make it happen day", started way back with Joomla 1.5. As you know Joomla is a community driven and developed CMS. That means that all the way from the framework, to the core code base, to the documentation is all done by community members like you and me.
What happens at PBF
Starting at 9 am in your local timezone, participants gather together. The tasks are grouped to make it easy to find somewhere to jump in and help. The facilitator (that's us), will help everyone get things setup. Then for the next few hours, usually until 5 pm local time, the community crushes bugs, solves issues and updates documentation.
What can I do, I'm not a developer
Participants will receive additional information closer to the event.
