'''Early Detection'''
+
{{:Doc Camp 1}}
 
+
There is no symptom of cervical cancer in early stage. But it can be detected, that is by conducting Pap Smears. The advantage of Pap Smears is to find the cancer earlier so the management will much easier and the woman has a better quality of life.A woman should do Pap Smears one year after she is sexually active, and repeats it regularly every year.

There are 100 types of HPV identified and most of them are not harmful and also do not show the symptom. Fourty types of HPV may be contagious through sexual intercourse; they are classified into two groups: HPV causing cancer and low risk HPV.
+
Every woman is having the risk of being infected by cervical cancer during their life without reference to age and life style. HPV easily infected through skin contact and sexual intercourse. Condom use cannot lessen the risk of spreading HPV.
+
About 50-80% women are infected by HPV through sexual contact. About 50% of the infection is potencial to grow to be cancer. The risk is started from the very first sexual contact.
+
Not likely other viruses, if a woman is infected by HPV, it does not mean that she will have immunity to the virus. The woman remains to have risks to get the repeated infection from same or different types of HPV.
+
 
+
'''Vaccination'''
+
 
+
Other prevention is conducting HPV vaccination. In this time there is available vaccine of type 16 HPV and type 18 HPV. These types are responsible to 70% cases of cervical cancer in Asia.
+
Vaccine will improve the ability of immune system to recognize and to kill the virus when it enters the body before the occurance of infection.
+
Vaccination combined with screening can lessen the risk of cervical cancer better than only screening.

Past Events

Pizza Bugs and Fun 2

Something for everyone at the Joomla! Bazaar: coding, documentation, testing and other fun stuff. This event took place on two consecutive weekends, 21/22 and 28/29 June 2008. For more information see Pizza Bugs and Fun 2.

Joomla! Doc Camp 2

Doc Camp 2 morphed into one of the "stalls" in the Joomla! Bazaar. See Pizza Bugs and Fun 2.

Google Highly Open Participation Contest

Ghoplogo.jpg

The Google Highly Open Participation Contest for pre-university students (high school and secondary school students) took place between November 2007 and February 2008 and was aimed at encouraging young people to participate in open source projects. Joomla! is proud to have been invited to join with nine other open source organisations for this pilot program. Tomasz Dobrzyński was unanimously selected as Joomla!'s 2008 Grand Prize Winner of the Google Highly Open Participation Contest. Tomasz completed seven tasks during the competition.

  1. Translate part of the Installation Manual to a non-English Language - output - forum thread
  2. Create a Blog Entry Date Calendar Icon Plugin for Joomla! v 1.5 - output - forum thread
  3. Create a Joomla! v 1.5 Plugin to update Twitter status with article title when published - output - forum thread
  4. Carry out GHOP unit test on the Joomla1 1.5 Test Package for the Front Page Manager - output - forum thread
  5. Carry out GHOP unit test on the Joomla1 1.5 Test Package: Template Manager - output - forum thread
  6. Carry out GHOP unit test on the Joomla1 1.5 Test Package: Menu Manager - output - forum thread
  7. Implement Avatar/Gravatars for Joomla! v 1.5 - output - forum thread

Selecting a winner was difficult because there were many deserving contestants. In review, it was obvious that GHOP was more than a contest for Tomasz. He demonstrated what contributing to a free software community should be like. He discovered that learning is fun, he expressed joy in sharing what he produced with others, he was proud to contribute his gifts, and he was honoured to be a part of the Joomla! community. As is true with many other contestants, Tomasz inspired those of us who worked with the program and reminded us why we also contribute.

We congratulate Tomasz Dobrzyński on this well deserved honor and we thank him, and each of the others, who contributed to the Joomla! community.

All completed contest tasks are available for review and download.

Documentation all together.jpg

The first Joomla! Doc Camp event took place over the weekend of 19 January 2008. Although most of the activity took place online, we were joined by physical locations in Vancouver, Canada and Brussels, Belgium. A huge "thank you" to all who contributed during the event. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Please read the Joomla! Doc Camp Report.

You can see the results (and continue to work on the documentation) here: Joomla! Doc Camp.
