General points

The team discussed the following topics (documents / proposals)

Team news

We are still urgently seeking to recruit two new team members, an Operations and Marketing Coordinator and a Platform Developer.
These positions were posted in the May issue of the Joomla Community Magazine (JCM), community openings article:- 
So far we have not received any reactions. If you're interested or know someone suitable please contact us (or me directly).

Operations and Marketing

There are no other updates from the Operations and Marketing team (mainly due to the lack of exams).

Website and Exam platform

Shika: (new exam platform) - no change since June.

At this point in time we have not found any 'show stoppers' with Shika itself, but have some problems with the question management component. We need a Platform Developer to help us with this, as mentioned above, the position has been shared in the May issue of the JCM (see above).


J!4 Administrator exam (and no update to the J!3 version)

The JCP team and the Programs Department members agreed to us focussing on updating the Administration Exam to reflect the forthcoming release of Joomla version 4.0. It was always agreed that we will not update the J!3 version of the Administrator exam.

We are planning to update the Question Management System (QMS) to version J!4. We ar planning to use the workflow features in J!4 to help us organise and streamline the (re)writing and reviewing the Questions and Answers for the J!4 exam(s).

Upcoming Meeting(s):
