User Experience Team (JUX) Official
The Joomla User Experience (JUX) Working Group is focused on lowering the barrier of entry for new users by improving the Joomla user experience and interface, taking it to a new level of intuitiveness and ease of use, as well as optimize and streamline the workflows for our site integrators and seasoned users.
Ahead of the Curve
Our goal is to keep Joomla always ahead of the curve, and to achieve that, we must brainstorm and bring about a revolution in the Joomla interface. By harnessing the power of the UX processes, and above all listening to our users, we can, together, shape the future of Joomla and inspire people to achieve great things.
