Magento Community Diverse Speaker Training
Earlier this year we announced that we are working with Jill Binder of DiverseIn.tech to offer an online Magento Community Speaker Workshop. Having more kinds of folks present from the stage benefits the community and our products. In offering an online speaker workshop, we are aiming to eliminate a barrier to public speaking by creating an opportunity for professional training. The first workshop took place in July and those who took part in this launch had a 47 percent increase in public speaking confidence! Find out how to register for January.
Live Translation on the Magento Forums
Last week we added the capability for live translation in 8 additional languages here on the Magento Forums. We've launched this capability with Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. You can now read and reply to any of the main discussion areas in any of those 8 languages, in addition to the pre-existing English. Our hope is that this live translation will allow the broader Magento community to share knowledge and solve problems together across language barriers.
(If you have a language request, please send it my way for future consideration.)
For the past two years, contributors to Magento projects during October have had a chance to win some cool swag from us based on their contributions. This will be the third year the event runs and we’re expanding its scope to also include Adobe open source projects! If you submit 5 pull requests to either github.com/magento or github.com/adobe repositories during October, we’ll send you some swag! Check out our DevBlog for more details.
GitHub Contributor Badge
It's been awhile since we added the GitHub Contributor Badge to the forums, so I wanted to remind you that if you contribute to Magento on GitHub and you would like your profile here to show that you do, you can request a Core Contributor badge.
