Joomla! Core Team Joomla! is led by members of the Core Team who are responsible for the overall Project Management. All working together as a single team, committed to moving Joomla! forward in the true spirit of the Open Source movement. Core Team members come from different backgrounds, a diverse array of disciplines, with varied experiences. The Core Team is also a truly global group with members located in many countries throughout the globe. This all contributes to the strength and richness of Joomla!. Biographies of current members of Core Team Honour Roll of past members of Core Team Joomla! Working Groups The Joomla! project has several Working Groups that have been created to utilise the wealth of knowledge our community provides. Each of these groups focuses on a specific aspect of Joomla! essential to the project's growth and development. As it is neither possible or healthy for the core team to be involved in every discussion and conversation regarding Joomla! development and growth these working groups are essential. With a leader or co-leader on the core team they have a built-in method of communication directly with the core team. These working groups provide an essential communication channel between the community and the core team to bring concerns to light, advocate changes, and disseminate information. More about Joomla! Working groups...
