This past month’s meeting featured Martin kicking things off, then followed a presentation by Simon Coggins of Totara talking about the Open Badges integration project that will allow Moodle to publish earned badges to the Mozilla Open Badges backpack.

Next we learned about Bootstrap and the advances Moodle is making in being able to install and update plugins without using FTP or command line (very awesome).

Later in the meeting enhancements and changes to 2.5, including Behat testing, shorter forms, code, and assignments were each discussed.

Finally to wrap things up there was a brief presentation of the development roadmap for the official Moodle mobile app and the Google Summer of Code participation.
