Bugs & Fun @ home

Every few months, Joomla enthusiasts get together and help test/fix/translate/document the next Joomla releases. This spin off of the Pizza, Bugs & Fun events is now a familiar place where Joomlers meet and test patches.

YOU CAN be part of the fun and help improve Joomla. No need to be a developer, I will show you how you can test patches and become familiar with the process.


For this session, you will be provided with a test site you can run patches on.
However, you do need a GitHub account prior to the session. If you don't have one, please create one at

You are not required to attend the whole session; you can pop in and out!
