The team is conducting outreach to known JUG leader/organizer contacts. Meetings are to be held Thursday, November 11, and today. Patrick attended the Thursday meeting. Shout out to Laura Gordon for moving the ball forward.
Looking to schedule a meeting to plan the new format of PBF / Joomla Internal events going forward.
Continue with a single weekend PBF
Expand to a month-long Joomla Hackathon potentially twice a year.
One early 2022
The second one October coincides with Digital Ocean Hacktoberfest, which then comes with an existing community, discord server, and onboarding opportunities.
Additionally this working group may pivot to assist VET with running onboarding events, as well as being a group that runs internal Joomla events (becoming a virtual pseudo-JUG).
