Date: Friday, 12 July 2013b

Location: Online globally

Who's invited: everyone

Participation

We've dubbed the event as a Business PBF, since it's our first PBF on a weekday (Friday) and we'd like to get more businesses involved. We've created badges that you can use on your sites to spread awareness of the event and get recognition for your participation.

Furthermore, we'd like to give you more recognition and highlight your pledge of participation by placing your logo and a link to your site on this landing page. To be listed on this landing page, please submit this form.

There are four participations levels: Epic, Platinum, Gold, and Bug Squasher.

Epic
is for 100 hours or more pledged to the event
Platinum
is for 10 hours or more pledged to the event
Gold
is for 5 hours or more pledged to the event
Bug Squasher
is for individuals that have pledged to participate

So, for example, if Company ABC had five of their developers for two hours, then they could use the Platinum badge and have their logo (and link) in the platinum area on the landing page.

The hours you choose to pledge towards the event is totally up to you as an individual or business. As a bonus, if you write a blog post about the event, you can count it as 30 minutes towards your pledge. So if you pledged 5 hours and write a blog post, you'd be helping at the event for 4.5 hours.

Finally, on the day of the event, come and go as you'd like and fulfill your pledged hours. You can help with testing bug fixes, reporting bugs, coding bug fixes, etc. Most of all, enjoy every minute! Have fun, enjoy the fellowship, learn, and make Joomla better for you, your business, your clients, and your friends.
