A Joomla! Pizza Bug and Fun (PBF) event 19th of October 2019 takes place in many countries around the world. This wiki will be used as the central resource for coordinating efforts and accumulating results from this event.


Whether you are a newbie, beginner or professional, graphic designer or programmer, whether you have an agency or a club site, whether female or male, whether young or old Pizza Bugs and Fun is for you. The event is for those who already work with Joomla! or wants to get to know Joomla! first. Only your interest in Joomla! counts. Everyone is welcome. On 19th of October 2019 we would like to invite you all Joomla-enthusiastic users, regardless of your previous knowledge, to make Joomla! even better. We are grateful for any support! Participation is free, non-alcoholic drinks and a pizza included.

  • Joomla 4: Joomla 4.0 is coming soon, but it still has a lot of bugs and feature requests that are untested, which means they cannot be added into the Joomla core.
  • Documentation: There are lots of Documents that need writing. Tutorials and Help Screens needed for Joomla! 4.
  • Documentation Translation: At the PBF Event we hope to translate lots of English documents into other languages to give Joomla! users as much information as possible in their language.
  • Patch testing: As a main rule, new functions for Joomla have to be tested before they can be merged into an official release. Usually, it takes only a few minutes and you can help make Joomla better.
