Where the bloody hell are you?

Category: joomla

To borrow one of the worst marketing slogans from my countries history, “Where the bloody hell are you? – I feel the same about the so called people who cry out for Joomla!’s community.

I’m an Australian, we have a rather solid belief of just getting the job done. Just do it may be the Nike saying but it does reasonably well for describing Australia. I don’t particularly care for all of the noisy people crapping on about things who are ranting and raving about community. I care about people pulling their finger out and just doing it.

Get out there and do it. The community is anyone doing something positive for Joomla!. Fixing bugs, writing patches, porting to MSSQL even. Organising events, organising JUGS. What IRKS me is that some people don’t seem to be interested in contributing unless they get some form of massive recognition out of it. I’ve seen that recently and it disappoints me that the Joomla! community has people who work on those terms.

Perhaps it is just me, but you do something not to be known but because you enjoy it. I was asked the other day what my get rich quick scheme is but I don’t have one. I do what I do because its intellectually stimulating and a challenge. Why do you do it?
