Current Production Working Groups

Database Working Group

There's plenty of work to do to improve the way that Joomla works with databases. We need database experts who can look at optimising queries, improving the data model and making Joomla work across multiple databases. If you are a database junkie and you'd like to help then contact Mark Dexter.

Search Working Group

Now that Finder has been integrated into Joomla 2.5 in the form of Smart Search, the time has come to look forward to Joomla 3.x and how we want search to work in that series.

Unit Tests for CMS Working Group

  • Coordinator: Michael Babker

Internet of Things Working Group

This working group is looking into using the Joomla Platform to simplify and open source the "internet of things". Using several popular input/output devices to allow the world to connect to the internet and back to the world; for the device's data to be easily displayed on Joomla sites and Joomla sites to "talk back" to the environment.
