Absents: Chris Keen, Hector Mansilla, Johan Van der Velde, Andre Dreier, Pablo Pantoja, Richard van Tilborg, Arjen Schrijvers.

Discussion Outline

  • Patrick reported news from the last Steering meeting.

  • Platform Team is working on the Platform and created a Demo Exam to show candidates how the system works.

  • Oscar is working on the Certified Users Directory, improving the UX and responsivity.

  • Marketing Team published a brand-new Learning Guide for the Joomla! Administrator Exam:

  • In order to avoid students being charged for payment handling fees, Steering Group decided that in order to cover payment handling fees from JUG and JoomlaDay organisers, students will continue paying the published amount for the Exam and CT will provide organisers a lower price for Exam seats. This is a temporary measure that will be deleted during the next month, when users can finally pay themselves for their exam seats.

  • Upcoming exam sessions at Community events:

    • Joomla! World Conference (Canada) with Sarah Watz as Supervisor (November 13, 2016)

    • JoomlaDay Italy with Luca Marzo and Richard van Tilborg as Supervisors (November 12, 2016)

    • JoomlaDay Austria with Stefanie Thielmann as Supervisor (December 2, 2016)
