Welcome Jaz Parkyn as the new JED Team Manager

I'm pleased to announce Jaz Parkyn as the new Joomla Extensions Directory (JED) Team Manager. Jaz has been a member of the JED Team since January 2015, starting off with processing extension submissions as well as helping out in all of the other team roles and eventually becoming the assistant manager.

Never have I imagined the number of amazing and talented people that jumped at the opportunity to help out in various ways over the years.

Going forward there is still a lot of work to be done with the JED, improving user experience and site management workflow. I'm confident that Jaz and her team will bring many improvements to the table.

To the community and everyone that donates their time to this project; I am honored and grateful to have been able to be a part of it.

Give up a few hours of your free time to help out where ever you can. A few hours a week can make a big difference and can be gratifying.

You get to meet some really great people in the community and that alone is worth the experience. Attend a Joomla event and you'll get to see first-hand how everyone comes together like one big family or at the very least you'll get out of the house for a few days.

Up and on-wards for me. My free time will be put into a new project that I'm excited about; helping to get veterans into technical jobs.

I will remain as part of the JED Team for a little while to help out when questions arise and I'm able. I wish everyone the best and look forward to seeing you online and at events in the future.
