You can join any of our weekly meetings in Zoom at: http://bit.ly/backdrop-meetings
We'd love to have you join with us during any of these meetings, but if you are unable to join us in person, please use this forum topic to post your thoughts. What goals do you have for the Backdrop CMS community in 2020?
EDIT: A few sub-topics have started for more focused discussions on specific issues.
I really enjoy watching this community growing up.
I would like to say my opinion, even am only testing Backdrop CMS.
First there no need to compare BD community with the largest like Drupal, WordPress or joomla, Backdrop should focus what other small projects do like gravCMS, or even silverstripe.
Second a killer feature could be (in my opinion) a better media manager, the way backdrop use media is obsolete. I know Backdrop have no manpower to do something hard like this. :(
Third Something mention last UI meeting, there is no themes and the backdrop themes are not updated more than a year.
Fourth More tutorials how to do themes and modules, Laravel has a lot of tutorials in their site (https://laracasts.com/).
Fifth polylang, there so good support for other than English language. Typo3 is a king in Germany, the audience from Germany give a large community members who are not speaking English. A very good addition could be Arabic language.
I think many users (especially Drupal), Knowing Backdrop but the lack of themes and modules, turn them away. As external Backdrop CMS community seems like a dev programmers only community not for every day user.
About new BD member not only focus to Drupal 7 users, but also from other CMS like gravCMS, silverstripe or framework devs like laravel and also a new comer dev who's starting his dev life (University students).
My 2 cents
