Countdown to the 2nd MODX Bug Hunt begins!

The first MODX Bug Hunt was such a success, we touched more than 250 Github issues and fixed more than 125. New features were also implemented! MODX community members have made the logical decision to plan a second event on the 7th of July, 2017. This time it will take place in Munich, Germany, at the location of the 2015 MODXpo: Kochan & Partner offices.

For those who have missed it so far, the goal of the Bug Hunt is to dig into Github Issues, analyze Pull Requests, determine what is relevant and help resolve problems to make MODX Revolution even better!

It’s also a chance for the MODX Community to again work together, rekindle working relationships, exchange ideas, and build to a common goal: Creative Freedom!

You’ll definitely learn new things, because the Bug Hunt brings great minds together. You’ll learn about: the core, different workflows, working with Git and of course programming. Maybe you’ll even find somebody crazy enough to teach you some ExtJs.

Who should participate?

Everyone should feel welcomed to participate. Either remotely or in person at the Kochan & Partner offices - all skill sets are needed! From UX to web design to PHP programming and everything in between.

Participating remotely will make you feel part of Bug Hunt. While we won’t have VR-setup yet, there will be a full-day livestream with interviews and the MODX Community Slack (#modxbughunt) will be the main communication channel (signup for free at modx.org).

For those coding, we recommend reading the contributors guide beforehand so that you can get up and running quickly when hunting those bugs! You can read the guide here.

Win Prizes!

Participants have the chance to bring home some tall cash, win software licenses and earn some MODX Kudos!

Hi. We’re MODX.

We’re here to help you fix, build and grow fantastic sites. How can we help?




How can we help?

Tell us the general reason for reaching out so we can connect you with the right team.

MODX Diagnostics

MODX’s Open Source software is 100% free for anyone to download and use. As the team behind it for more than a decade, we know it inside, out, and then some.

Like any software, sometimes things break; we can usually fix them very fast. But, we do have to charge for our time to support our families and fund its ongoing development. There are almost an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more. We will save you a lot of time and frustration, and get you back in action.

With our MODX Diagnostic service, we determine the source of issues, and often fix them on the spot. For more extensive problems needing more time, like hacked sites or overdue upgrades, we provide additional estimates and guidance. MODX Diagnostics cost $99 for standard business hours support (US Central Time), or $500 for priority, rush or after-hours emergencies.

If you don’t have budget for professional support from the source, you look for answers in the MODX Forums or Documentation, or seek help from MODXers in the Community Slack, or from MODX Professionals near you.

  I’m not ready to pay, let’s talk…

After submitting this form and completing payment, we will collect your access credentials in a secure support ticket. We look forward to helping restore your site back to full health.
