Displaying items by tag: Joomla Community

joomla-jed-editors-picksThe Joomla! Extensions Directory Team announced a few days ago that they have made some new guidelines for "the once Top Secret Editor's Picks".

With no new selections since 2008 and only 8 current listings, the team thought it was past time to review the and add new ones. Throughout discussions many ideas were brought up on how to handle the selection process.

To bring in community involvement, a nomination form was created. The criteria for selection is listed on the nomination form (link below). The nomination process closes in October 14th, 2010. So make sure to get yours in quickly!

ebay-logoAs I mentioned a few days ago, there was going to be a big announcement for Joomla today. eBay announced earlier today that the company is going to use Joomla, the world's largest open source content management system (CMS). Joomla will be used for its thousands of employees to share information in its community portal. It might not be as big as it seemed at first, but I believe it's still a really good thing for Joomla.

The "Community Analytics" program will enable eBay's 16,400 employees to source and analyze massive amounts of data to power ideas and learning across the company.

In exchange, eBay will contribute its experiences by becoming part of the Joomla open source community
