Fall Sprint – Spaces Still Available

September 7th, 2016 by  | Comments Off on Fall Sprint – Spaces Still Available

There are still spots available for you to join us at the Fall PKP 2016 Sprint in beautiful Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada! The dates are Sunday and Monday October 2-3, 2016. The event will be co-hosted by PKP and our friends at the University of New Brunswick Library.

Free registration is here: http://i.sfu.ca/TLVgsD
Deadline: September 23

Format
As always, we’ll run it unconference-style, with topics proposed by the group. In particular, we’ll be focusing on OJS 3.0, hacking in experimental features, building documentation, and exploring the new software. Much of this work will be technical in nature, but there will be opportunities for non-technical contributors. We will also be accommodating remote participation.

Travel
For information on getting to Fredericton, see the Access 2016 conference web site (which is happening immediately after the sprint).
