Business Pizza, Bugs, and Fun July 12th, 2013
Written by Nick Savov
Please consider this your personal invitation to join us on Friday, the 12th of July, for our first 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 July 12th
We've dubbed the event as a Business PBF, since it's our first PBF on a weekday (Friday) and we'd like to get more businesses involved. 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.
Joomla security, update and monitoring services win innovation of the year
Written by Jessica Dunbar
Watchful team members from Inetis and Anything Digital attended J and Beyond 2013. J and Beyond is one of the largest and most comprehensive events of the year for Joomla users, designers, and developers. It is a great opportunity to come together as a global community to meet and learn about Joomla. One of the noteable events on the itinerary at J and Beyond is the JOSCARS, the Joomla! Open Source Creative and Artistic Recognition Awards. For those of you who do not know what the JOSCARS are, you can read more about the nominations, and the winners in our previous blog post. With over 6000 extensions in the Joomla Extension Directory (JED), we were fortunate to be nominated for two of our Most Popular products — sh404SEF® our Joomla SEO extension and Watchful our Joomla security, updating and monitoring service.
This year at Joomla! Open Source Creative and Artistic Recognition Awards, Watchful and the other new monitoring services (Admincredible, My Joomla) were selected as Joomla! Innovation of the year for 2012-2013. Watchful co-founder Pierre-André Vullioud (@inetis_ch) — who owns the Swiss web design agency inetis — was there to view the result.
