You're Invited Please consider this your personal invitation to join us next week, Friday, the 17th of October, for our Business Pizza, Bugs, and Fun event. 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. The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 and Joomla 2.5 bugs as possible before the next maintenance releases. Friday October 17th We've dubbed the event as a Business PBF, since it's on a weekday (Friday) and we'd like to get more businesses involved. Last year's event was a huge success and we'd love it if you join us for this year's. We've created badges that you can use on your sites to spread awareness of the event and get recognition for your participation. For more information, check out our landing page at http://developer.joomla.org/pbf.

The event, which attracts around 8,000 women from around the world, is being held in Phoenix, Arizona (USA) between 8-10 October 2014. There will be a booth representing Joomla at the event. Ruth Cheesley from the Community Leadership Team will run a session within the Student Opportunities Lab entitled ‘Getting involved with Joomla’. This session will showcase the opportunities for women to get involved with Open Source projects such as Joomla during their academic career and beyond. The event is an incredibly inspirational opportunity for any women with an interest in computing and we would really encourage you to attend if you’re able to do so. Call for mentors We expect to receive a lot of interest at the conference. We are setting up clear channels through which people can get involved with the Joomla project. Through our experience with various teams within the project, we have found this works best by setting up an ‘on-boarding’ process. To facilitate this, we are currently recruiting mentors who would be willing to assist with bringing new volunteers on board, helping them find their feet in the community, putting them in touch with the right teams, and supporting them in the early days of their Joomla journey. If you have great communication skills, are actively involved within any area of the project, and feel you would like to dedicate some time to help new volunteers get started, please add your details via this form. Come and join us! We would really love to meet up with community members at Grace Hopper, so if you’re planning to attend do let us know, and drop past the booth to say hello! Sarah Watz and Ruth Cheesley will also be speaking at a Joomla User Group Phoenix meetup so if you’re local to the area why not come along?
