The backoffice project
The backoffice project has had a strong Community foundation from the beginning, and this strong Community team functions as a sounding board during Umbraco HQ's work of implementing the new backoffice, as well as getting their hands dirty in actual implementation of relevant tasks.
The Backoffice Community team brings their individual experience and skillsets - frontend, backend, UI/UX, packages, and QA - to help us get input in a wide spread of areas, and help increase further community involvement.
The backoffice project ends with an actual replacement for the current backoffice, which will be released in a major version of Umbraco yet to be determined. The community team will review it along the way, and they will help ensure that the new backoffice:
- continues to be flexible and extendable
- will be easy to work with and
- will encourage modern best practices
