Proposed Topics

The first order of business at a sprint is to choose projects, so come with your suggestions! Projects are based on attendee shared interests. We’ve seen the most success with small size projects that have teamwork potential and include a mix of both technical, and non-technical, tasks. Here’s a few ideas generated from past sprints and community interest:

  • Server infrastructure (docker)
  • Translation tools
  • UI/UX
  • Highlighting contributor roles
  • XML Publishing
  • User and Technical documentation
  • Accessibility

Registration

FREE! Register online by July 1, 2019. Don’t forget to suggest your own topics of interest.  Limited sponsorship of on-site housing (4 nights, July 28 – July 31) is available.
