PKP Sprint

The PKP Sprint brings together the PKP team and community members to collaborate on short-term, practical projects that can be scoped, developed, reviewed, and demonstrated in two days. Projects will be identified before and at the beginning of the sprint based on participant interest. Technical and non-technical people can all make valuable contributions and are all welcome to join us.

Running in parallel to the software sprint will be a book sprint, where participants will individually or in small teams work on a chapter for the next edition of Getting, Found Staying Found.
