Agenda

The Joomla Certification Program (JCP) team met to discuss the folowing topics

  1. The status of the Exam platform migration and upgrade.
  2. The progress in upgrading the Certification website and processes.
  3.  Any other business.

The status of the Exam platform migration and upgrade

The migration and upgrade to the new Exam platform is still ongoing, but unfortunately due to technical problems we've did'nt make much last month. We will provide an update in the next JCP team report.

The progress in upgrading the 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
