The new Core Collaborators Team is here!

A few weeks ago we opened up submissions for the Core Collaborators Community Team. This is the team responsible that ensure contributing to Umbraco CMS is a great experience. They provide help and guidance where needed and ensure incoming PRs are updated (and merged!).

As with all our community teams, we shuffle the cards (and team members) roughly once per year to make room for new faces and provide a natural transition for the ones that may want to hand over the reins to someone else.


And wow, the response has just been amazing. We had so many fantastic applications and it’s been really hard to pick. We even expanded the number of team members considerably. Jump over to the blog where team steward Sebastiaan Janssen has all the details on the new team. 

Congrats to all the new team members and a big thank you to the ones that are not signing on for another season - HIGH FIVE YOU ROCK 🙌

… Until next time

A large part of the work we do is inspired by the feedback we get from you. If you find issues or have specific feature requests, you can find the issue trackers for our products on the Umbraco Github account.
