At PBF everyone is needed and gets an important task, which corresponds to their abilities. No programming knowledge is necessary.
All those who want to test a patch can do this without the need to set up a local installation. You can use an online PBF environment. We work with Joomla! Version 4. Information about the new backend was published in November in Joomla-Magazin.
If you don't want to test a patch, please get in touch with a Glip-Chatroom. Together we will find an alternative task, see also the bottom of page.
Preparations and Installations
1. Means of communication - Enabling teamwork
2. Setup Joomla installation
There are two ways to get a Joomla installation at PBF.
Option 1: Shortly before the PBF event we will make Oline Installations available for participants with little system knowledge: How to use online PBF environment.
Option 2: Set up a local installation on your device: How to build a local Joomla environment.
3. Confirm and test PR
If you have configured the local or online installation, you can start. First choose a PR you want to work at. Confirm the bug if it hast staus "New"/"New" or test the patch if the status is "Pending"/"Waiting".
