The upcoming exam on August 4th in Australia

The team discussed the status of the exam platform and the apprropriate access for the the exam Supervisor, enrolment of the candidates and a number of others questions posted by the organisers.
We also confirmed support for the exam by the JCP team. The exam will be held at 2 pm on Sunday (Australian time), this is 6 am in Europe (where most of the JCP team live). We will be on standby and support the Supervisor throughout the exam.

The status of the Exam platform migration and upgrade

The migration and upgrade to the new Exam platform has made good progress, but unfortunately due to technical problems not as far as we had hoped. Work is continuing and we will provide an update in the next JCP team report.

The cancellation of the Jooma World Conference in London.

We are all disappointed, both for us and the whole Joomla community, but of course understand the reasons behind the decision.

The upcoming Group 1 Elections in August.

With the Group 1 Elections coming up soon, we checked our team members to ensure only active members are listed and therefore eligible to vote. Success to all the nominees!

The progress in upgrading teh Certification website and processes.

Not only is the JCP migrating and updating the Exam platform but we are also improving the Certification platform. This is also progressing well, through the streamlining of some of our processes, and by implementing the most suitable extensions.

Any other business

Upcoing exams: JUG New Jersey on October 19, 2019
Volunteers: we have one new candidate developer volunteer and one potential marketing volunteer.
We will be contacting them in the near future.

Meeting ended at 20:35 pm (CEST).
