The Joomla! Project

The entire Joomla! core team visited Google a few weeks ago, and I got the chance to catch up with them about all things Summer of Code. For episode four, we were joined by Jan "Wilco" Jansen, Johan Janssens, Mateusz Krzeszowiec, Louis Landry, Rob Schley, and Sam Moffatt. Joomla! is participating in SoC for the third time this year, so you'll hear tons of great advice from veteran mentors, in addition to learning more about Joomla!'s SoC 2007 projects. Both Mat and Sam joined the Joomla! project as SoC students in 2005 and went on to become core developers, and it was great to hear more from them about life in the inaugural Summer of Code.

Thanks to Johan, Mat, Louis, Rob, Sam and Wilco for joining us, and special thanks to Mat and Sam, both of whom have gone on to become mentors for Joomla! this year.

Leslie -

If this geek herding gig doesn't pan out for you, perhaps you might consider becoming a late night talk show host? Loved this - thanks!

Amy :)

@ amystephen: Thanks, glad you enjoyed it!

Is there any reason why there isn't a Mambo SoC stream as well, since Mambo is well and alive independently of Joomla and also remains an open source project ?

Leslie Hawthorn said...

@ lawrence: No representatives of Mambo have applied to take part in SoC 2006 or 2007. We welcome applications from all open source projects.
