Joomla User Groups (JUGs)
Davide and Benjamin Trenkle have already had a meeting with Brian Rønnow (JUG Team Leader)
The VET will progress this idea further, one of the ideas is providing a ‘Volunteer’ presentation that JUG leaders can use in their meetings.
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) applicants
Every year Joomla receives many applications for GSoC candidates, some are selected, others rejected. A possible VET initiative could be to interact with these applicants during this process to get them involved with Joomla. This would be beneficial to both J! and the applicants.
