If you’re interested in hearing what’s up and coming in Moodle 2.8, including an overview of new features and changes one of the best opportunities is to hear from the Moodle developers themselves as they walk through demos of Moodle’s new features during the regularly scheduled General Developer Meetings. The meetings are open to the public via live stream on Google Hangout and cover a lot of ground related to Moodle features, development progress and the shape of Moodle to come in subsequent releases. It’s a great way to hear about HQ priorities and even to ask questions.
The next General Developer Meeting is scheduled for October 21st at 9am EST. Tentatively scheduled on the agenda are:
- overview of upcoming release of Moodle 2.8
- reply to forums via email
- update on language strings
- mobile development update
- featured plugins update
- future of MNET
- plan for offline/dropped connection Moodle test taking
- …more to come
