Joomla! Doc Camp

Created on Monday, 31 December 2007 17:21

Following on from the huge success of the Joomla! 1.5 bug squashing days, please join us for the first world-wide Joomla! 1.5 documentation days starting on 19th January 2008.  We will have tasks for everyone; coders and non-coders alike.  Our primary aim is to dramatically increase the volume of documentation available for Joomla! 1.5.

So far we have locations in Vancouver, Canada and Brussels, Belgium and we hope to confirm other locations soon.  For the latest information on locations and other arrangements, please visit the Joomla! Doc Camp wiki page .  Please note that space at these locations is limited, so don't register unless you are certain you can come.

If you can't join us in person, come join us on IRC (#joomladocs @ freenode.).  For even more fun, why not organise your own local Doc Camp by finding a space with room for you and some others to work, and getting some food in.  Keep an eye on the wiki and join in on IRC so you know what is happening elsewhere.

In the spirit of open source we will be writing collaboratively using a wiki, but there will also be opportunities to upload standalone documents in other formats.  Learning from the success of the ongoing Google Highly Open Participation Contest we will try to present small, easily-managed tasks that can be completed in a single day. 

In advance of the event itself, why not help us define the task list?  Register on the wiki and make your suggestions there or add your ideas to this forum thread.
