Joomla! Developer Network
There is always a great deal of Joomla! development activity underway and communicating with other developers in the community is essential. This site is a resource for anyone looking to build or maintain software based on the Joomla platform
In line with the CMS Roadmap, a new working group has been formed to look at the potential for distributing the Joomla CMS in different distributions (rather than the current one-size-fits-all approach). All information, discussions and information can be found at the new github.com/joomla-cms/start-here site. Everyone is welcome to participate.
