Pizza, Bugs, and Fun – Bringing the Joomla! community together to get 1.5 out the door

Joomla! logoThe Joomla! core team has done an amazing amount of work over the past 2 years to bring Joomla! 1.5 to life. This group of dedicated developers have given large portions of their daily lives to make Joomla! a powerful tool to empower millions of individuals around the world.

On this Thanksgiving Day, there’s no better time for the Joomla! community to show our thanks and give back.

Last week I wrote a blog posting about how the community can help get Joomla 1.5 out the door. Now just a week later, we’ve got a plan of action. On the weekend of December 8 and 9, the US Joomla! community will have an opportunity to come together in New York, Washington, and California for the first ever Pizza, Bugs, and Fun (PBF) bug squashing event!

The goal is to have Joomla developers from around the US to come together in these three locations to squash bugs in a fun environment. With live Web cams projecting each location on big screens, beverages, pizza, and music, it’s going to be a great event!

Right now we’re still putting together the details of how this will all come together, but expect forward progress soon! For those that can’t make it to any of the locations, people will be able to create their own house parties for the event, to truly make it a nation-wide effort. More details coming soon.
