Proposed Topics

The first order of business at a sprint is to choose projects. 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 is now closed.
