Community Team update
Mautic Conference Global 2023 is go!
Over the weekend we closed the Call for Speakers and I’m excited to see the great range of sessions that have been proposed.
We are looking for volunteers in the following areas:
- Designers - to help us design everything from the backdrops on the stage to the forum badges for attendees and speakers to images for social media. Join us on Slack in #design and #mauticon and let us know if you want to be involved!
- Track leads - to run a set of sessions as MC, introducing the speaker, managing the Q&A process and generally keeping the sessions flowing smoothly.
- Support team - to help on the day with managing the chat, responding to any questions and escalating any problems to the team
- Video team - to help with rendering the session videos after the event
Education Team update
Finalizing the new end-user documentation
We have made great progress with the new end-user documentation, with the last few sections being reviewed and merged as we speak.
Translators have already started helping to make the documentation available in other languages through our integration with Transifex - if you would like to help with this you will find the project here. Drop us a line in #translations on Slack if you need an invitation to the team.
We plan to launch this with Mautic 5.
Product Team update
Mautic 5 progress
We continue to make good progress with the work needing to be done to update to Symfony 5.
We have now completed the huge task of completely refactoring every view that is used in Mautic from PHP templates to Twig - a big thanks to everyone who has helped with this project.
Now the team are working on removing old code which will no longer be supported with Symfony 5, and also finalising the work on the new message processing plugins using Symfony Mailer and Symfony Messenger.
We do need your help, as Mautic users, in testing these important updates. Every Friday we have our Open Source Friday sprints where you can step into the #t-product channel and help with testing new features and bug fixes. You will also always find the pinned issue at github.com/mautic/mautic/issues with a list of things that we want to focus on getting tested.
Transition of leadership
When we first formed the governance model back at the end of 2019, we decided that Team Lead roles would have a term of three years.
Norman Pracht, General Manager of Webmecanik, has done a fantastic job of establishing the Product Team and leading Mautic through these formative years, and with our great thanks, will be stepping back as Product Team Lead from the beginning of next month.
Mattias Michaux, Lead Product Architect at Dropsolid, will be taking over as Product Team Lead after a period of transition where Norman will support Mattias as Assistant Team Lead. I am sure that you will all extend Mattias a warm welcome!
I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to Norman for all of his dedication and enthusiasm to Mautic, and to Webmecanik for enabling Norman to have the time and resources to support the Mautic project. I am sure that we would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for your continual drive to improve Mautic for our users.
Let’s look at the numbers
It has been a great quarter, with ongoing growth in both the number of people who are participating in the community and also those who are taking the time to contribute and make the Mautic project and community even more awesome. It won’t be long before we exceed 7,000 members who have actively participated in the community!
We’ve had 457 active members this quarter, down slightly from 465 last quarter.
We continue to see growth in contributions across the project, and we have been able to make progress in several areas as a result.
