Community Team

:globe_with_meridians: :people_holding_hands: Do you want to organize a local meetup in your region? We are excited that there are two new meetup groups just getting started in Barcelona, Spain and Douala, Cameroon, and we’d love to have more!

Have a sneak peek at the meetup groups section of our new Community Portal launching soon and submit an application!

Drop us a line in #t-community if you have any questions, and let’s get talking!

Education Team

Technical writers: Help us finish the new end-user and developer documentation! :writing_hand:

We are :straight_ruler: this close to finishing the new dev docs and end-user docs, which are a massive improvement on our current documentation and will help new uses to get up to speed with Mautic much faster.

Could you help us to update the MVC docs of the developer documentation and bring them over to the new repository?

How about helping us create Postman collections to super charge developers on their journey with our API?

We also have a few sections on the end-user documentation which need updating.

:mega: Join #t-education on Slack and let’s get the project completed!

Marketing Team

We need some help with developing our inbound marketing plan and kicking off an ambassadors program, as well as launching and publicising the new membership tiers.

We’re also starting to plan some in person events (in Belgium and the UK) where we will be showcasing Mautic, so if field marketing is your thing come, and join us and help the spread the word about Mautic!

We need help with everything from designing the stand, banners, stickers, fliers etc to creating inspiring videos, demos, and followup workflows to engage with people who we meet on the day.

:loudspeaker: Join the conversation in #t-marketing on Slack!

Drupal developers: We need you too! :droplet:

We are building a team to work on developing some changes and improvements on the website.

Product Team

:thinking: When is Mautic 5 going to be released?

:mautibot: When people like you :people_hugging: help us to test fixes for the bugs :bug: that we found
in the alpha and beta release, and poke about in Mautic 5 beta-2 to make sure that everything it’s working as it should be.

Here’s how you can help us by giving us a bit of your time on a Friday, or indeed any day!

:bug: Testing bugs and new features

We have a whole bunch of exciting new features and bugs that have been found with both Mautic 4 and Mautic 5, which need testing.:computer::hammer_and_wrench:

You can do all of the testing within your browser - no need to install Mautic, apply patches, or anything fancy! Just one click will take you to a Mautic instance with the fix or feature applied, ready for testing.

Learn more in the docs at . :globe_with_meridians: :sparkler:

Prefer guided tours? Hop on for our video tutorial journey! :film_projector:

:loudspeaker: Need assistance? Join us at the #t-product channel on Slack!

:thinking: Wondering what needs testing? You’re in luck! We have a project board which has been especially curated:

Together, we are what makes Mautic magnificent. Let’s continue to uphold our core values and shape a brighter future for our community. Thank you for being part of our incredible journey, we can’t wait to see what we achieve together this Open Source Friday! :trophy:

Happy contributing, and have an awesome weekend folks! :tada:
