Residential Sprint (after CiviCon UK 2017) Bampton, Devon
A week of collaboration and working together to improve CiviCRM.
Our annual residential sprint is your chance to dig deeper into CiviCRM and help push the project forward in the company of others that are doing the same. Sprints are friendly and welcoming events that provide an opportunity for you to get to know the rest of the CiviCRM community and contribute back to the project at the same time. They are ideal for working on your pet project, learning about the latest developments in CiviCRM and building up your CiviCRM network.
This year’s sprint will be held in Bampton, Devon, over 6 days from 7th to the 12th October (leaving the morning of the 13th).
Sprint attendees typically work in small groups on projects of mutual interest. Examples of areas we've worked on in previous sprints include:
- creating, reviewing and publishing extensions
- performance and usability improvements to core code
- improving marketing materials
- increased test framework and coverage
- documenting new features
- fixing bugs you have encountered
- improving CiviCRM infrastructure (e.g. the extensions directory).
If you are wondering whether the sprint is for you, feel free to contact Olly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Michael (email@example.com) before you register and we can talk about your interests and how we can cater for them at the sprint. Otherwise, we'll be in touch once you've registered to talk through what you want to get out of the event.
And if in case you needed more convincing, sprint attendees will be able to attend master classes from the developer training (though they won't be able to attend the core sessions - if you'd like to attend those, please sign up for the developer training).
