Joomla Forum for the Future Official Recap

On January 17-19 2020, many top community members were invited to attend the Forum for the Future. This was a forum rather than an unconference, four streams were suggested, but also other pressing matters were presented and discussed. The purpose of the event was to facilitate communication between teams, involve people from outside the community to share their knowledge, experience and allow us to see beyond our "world" while working together on the 4 most important topics of our volunteer organization.

Initially the attendees were separated into streams/categories, each tasked with brainstorming to define areas of concern and provide actionable improvements for the project. These streams were Market, Technology, Professionalising, Re-Engagement. 

Important: these are only discussion points, not fully made decisions on the direction of the Joomla project.

Why does Joomla exist? Who cares?

  • Community. It is great software.
