Back in August we announced that we would be hosting Joomla! Pizza, Bugs & Fun or PBF. A worldwide event to bring the Joomla! community together to work on the next release, Joomla! 4. PBF is here! This Saturday at 9 am the fun begins.
What is Joomla!
Joomla! is a free, open-source content management system (CMS) that is used to publish web content. It is developed and maintained by a global community of volunteers and developers. The Joomla! platform is user-friendly, extendable, multilingual, accessible, responsive, search engine friendly, and so much more.

What is Pizza, Bugs & Fun
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 you can do to help
There are 3 ways you can help:
- Be an EXPLORER - as an explorer, you will help to update the Joomla! documentation by writing about the new features, making screenshots and possibly translating existing documentation
- Be an ADVENTURER - as an adventurer, you will help to test Joomla! 4, following the outlined test step to prove a fix works or doesn't work and making notes of the outcome
- Be a CONQUERER - as a conquerer, you will get to flex to coding skills to help fix existing issues
