As you might now my main aim being part of this board has been to work in
the inclusion and integration of the non-English-native-speakers community
into the project. Mainly because there are amazing developers, testers,
designers... out there. I will love to see all of them finding easy
mechanisms to participate in the global project.
In this two years being an active part of the Joomla project I have seen
- Growing Joomla User Groups all over the world:
- More non-native English speakers joining the working teams.
- Improving our transparency and communications with the community. And
improving the way we listen the community feedback.
- The multilingual feature in the core of the CMS:
- Joomla!Days and Joomla! events everywhere.
- and many many others successes.
Of course those are not my successes, those are successes of the entire
community. But I feel part of them with my one's bit.
There is always people that say that we are doing bad. But in my
has been always a project where you can participate and share your
opinions. I invite those people that think: "we should change the way we do
something" to join the working teams and make it happen. Anyway I have
heard a lot of demands from the community that we really have to work on
them. And we will, but at this very moment and thinking in this two years
in OSM I feel very proud of the work that this board have done. And also
for the work done of the entire leadership team. And also for the work done
of every working team. And of course the work done of this amazing
I think we did a great job but I'm sure we can do it better. This is why I
want to communicate that I would like to extend my board membership. I have
the time and the desire to continue my volunteer work serving this board.
