This Quick Reference Guide is an overview for people who want to help out with improving the Joomla software. All software contains small errors ("bugs") and Joomla is no exception.
To solve these errors small improvements ("patches") are created and released. Such patches need to be tested before those improvements can be added to the Joomla source code. You don't need any programming skills to test: Anyone with some Joomla experience can help with testing bugs and patches!
This Quick Reference Guide describes the Joomla Issue Tracker, How to set up a test environment, How to test a patch, How to report a bug and how to submit a patch.
On Saturday November 1st 2014, Peter Martin helps organizing a Pizza, Bugs and Fun day in Sausalito (just above San Francisco), CA, USA.
Pizza, Bugs and Fun is an event to try to find & report bugs in Joomla, install & test patches to solve those bugs, while also having fun and learn new things about the software. You don't need to be a coder to participate in a bug squad event. If you are a Joomla user you can participate. More info about the event at Meetup.
Joomladay UK 2014 will be held in Ascot, Berkshire (westside of London), United Kingdom on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th October 2014.
Peter Martin will do 3 presentations:
