A Joomla! Pizza Bug and Fun event 8th of September 2018 - originally planned for Germany, but now takes place in many countries across europe. 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. We are happy about everyone who already works with Joomla! or wants to get to know Joomla! first. Only the interest in Joomla! counts. Everyone is welcome here. On 8th of September 2018 we would like to invite all Joomla-enthusiastic users, regardless of their 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 on the horizon, but over 200 bugs and feature requests are untested, which means, they cannot go into the Joomla core.
  • Documentation: There are lots of untranslated Documents, Tutorials and Help Screens. At the PBF Event we hope to translate a lot of it 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 Joomla becomes better and better.


You'll find as much information as possible on how this event is organized. If you don't find what you are looking for, here are a few FAQs:

  1. Q: Where can I register if I want to join? A: Contact a Joomla! User Groups (JUGs) near you or write a mail to Benjamin Trenkle [1].
  2. Q: I can't come to a location - can I join online? A: Yes! You only need a computer and internet, but unfortunately you have to order a pizza by yourself.

Organization, logistics and communications[edit]

This PBF is organized by local Joomla! User Groups (JUGs) in Germany. You can find more information on the special event page: (german).

You would like to participate but you don't have a user group nearby? Or you are Joomla User Group and want to join? Just do it! There are very small requirements:

  • You need a room with WiFi access
  • You need some Joomlers equipped with a laptop and motivation.
  • Do not hesitate to send an email to Benjamin Trenkle [2] or search him in Glip.

Of course, you can also join from home, but where is the fun without the community and the pizza?
