What is the Joomla User Experience?

The mission of the Joomla User Experience Team (JUX Team) is to create a great overall user experience for Joomla site administrators, thereby giving site users the same. We approach UX with a process, including defining the interaction design, information architecture, usability requirements, and the visual design through user research. We are also focused on mobile content and accessibility.

The JUX Team will get started immediately with the current version of Joomla as well as improving the user experience of the Joomla.org family of websites. 

Get involved now with the JUX Team activities in the JUX Forum and find out more about official Working Groups on the documentation wiki.

JUX Code Sprint - Report

On the 8th and 9th July seven people gathered at the Chancellors Conference Centre, in Manchester, for a 2 day code sprint looking at Joomla UX. Talking about things online is great but you can't beat real face to face time. (Chancellors was chosen as it was the most accessible location and being part of Manchester University they use Joomla)

We split each day into analysis and coding sessions that ran from 9am through until three or four in the morning and achieved a huge amount. Of course some of the work we discussed has not even been started yet and some of the items we discussed will just have to wait until Joomla 4.

Our aims were to improve the usability, accessibility, consistency and perhaps more importantly to reduce some perceived complexity. You can see the work achieved to date in the short video below but to summarise:
