On the 8th and 9th July seven people gathered at the Chancellors Conference Centre, in Manchester, for a 2 day code sprint looking at Joomla UX. Talking about things online is great but you can't beat real face to face time. (Chancellors was chosen as it was the most accessible location and being part of Manchester University they use Joomla)

I’d like to extend an open invitation, on behalf of the Joomla User eXperience (JUX) Team, to the first official JUX Code Sprint:

JUX Code sprint 8-9 July 2013

Following the incredible results from the impromptu bug squashing session held at J&Beyond 2013 the JUX Team has decided to organise a formal JUX Code Sprint, in time for the 3.2 release.

We want to draw together Joomla community members, their laptops, caffeinated beverages and a predefined ‘hit list’ of proposed UI/UX improvements and then get things done!

Joomla 2.5 was just released to kickstart 2012, so what's the status of the JUX?

JUX in 2011

Let's take a quick look back first.

Joomla.org Redesign - JUX was started late 2011 and immediately got to work on the redesign of Joomla.org, which was a fairly massive and successful undertaking.

We are embarking on a massive effort, a Joomla frontier.

Never before has a group of industry professionals banded together in the Joomla world to collaborate with the community on a common goal.
