The initial code sprints will be used to help build the newest version of Joomla, which more than 3 percent of websites now use for their CMS. Joomla 3.2 is expected to be released this September.

“With half a million volunteer contributors to the Joomla core spread around the world, traditionally we have held structured code sprints virtually because logistically that’s what worked best,” said Paul Orwig, President, Open Source Matters, a non-profit created to provide organization, legal and financial support to the Joomla project. “However, there’s no substitute to face-to-face collaboration and that’s why we are launching these in-person sprints.”

The biggest goals that coders partaking in the sprints are being tasked with is making improvements to the user interface (UI) for developers building Joomla sites and simplifying how developers create Joomla extensions. Joomla extensions allow users to add nearly any feature to their website that are not included in the core Joomla CMS (such as a photo gallery). Currently there are thousands of Joomla extensions.
