George Wilson
Joomla 4 Development Team

George will be joining us via Skype from London to catch us up on Joomla! 4. Before contributing to and leading several Joomla Project Development Teams, George slowly entered the world of web design during school in 2010 and shortly after he started developing Joomla extensions. In 2011 George found a really annoying Joomla bug which he submitted a fix for and the rest, as they say, is history. Since then George has been part of the documentation team, the bug squad team and has helped out in many sub-groups focussing on code in the CMS and Framework.
