General points

Team news:
Wilco (Alsemgeest) has formally left the JCP team (although he remains in his Webmaster role):
We would like to really thank Wilco for all his input and appreciate all the work he has carried out during his time in the JCP. We wish him success with his work outside the JCP!

Exam sessions:
There are two exams confirmed in the upcoming period.

  • September 11th 2020 -  Zurich, Switzerland (number of candidates not yet known).
  • October 16th 2020  -  Chicago, USA.(number of candidates not yet known).

There is an also an unconfirmed exam scheduled to held held in Malaysia (details are not yet known) 

Website and Exam platform
We have identified a number of issues and need these to be fixed before we can migrate to the LMS Shika (from TechJoomla) our new exam platform. Two of these have now been resolved, there remaining issue will be worked on with TechJoomla in the next month.

J!4 exam(s)
We are now starting preparations for the J!4 exam(s). The J!4 Administrator Exam should be available approximately 6 months after the J!4 release date, this gives the JCP team enough time to complete the questions and answers based on the released version (including any initial bug fixes). This period will also give users sufficient time to use and learn J!4 and to prepare for the exam.
We will be shortly looking for volunteers to help us (re)write the Administrator exams Q&A's, if you're interested please contact us!

Next meeting: will be held on Septemebr 30th, 2020.
