Dalesbridge sprint (after CiviCon London 2013)
General Registration for this event has now been closed
If you would like to attend for a couple of days only or a day visit please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see if this is possible.
There are no hard and fast requirements for attending a sprint, apart from a desire to work on improving CiviCRM in some way and the time to do it. We'll choose 2 or 3 areas to work on (based on participants' interest) and split into teams to tackle these areas. The idea is that we can work on improving CiviCRM and increasing your skills and knowledge at the same time.
Having skills in specific areas like coding, documentation, writing tests, etc. is great but not a requirement. A desire to further develop your skills and to help others through "peer learning" is required! Examples of work that we've done previously at sprints include:
- documenting new and upcoming features
- improving usability of current features
- getting your code improvements generalised and incorporated into CivICRM
- improving test coverage
- squashing bugs
- discussing, improving and finalising requirements for up and coming features
By the end of the sprint we'll have made some significant progress in a couple of areas in CiviCRM, and you'll have the tools to continue working on your projects outside of the sprint. You will also get to know people in the CiviCRM community a lot better.

If you would like to attend the sprint but you can't afford the attendance cost please get in touch.
If you are coming to the sprint by train then you can either get the train to Settle or Clapham (North Yorkshire). It will be easier to get a taxi to the sprint venue from Settle.
A few of us will be taking the Saturday morning 11.35am train from Kings Cross to Settle via Leeds (arrives at Settle on 15:44). We'll be in Coach C.
