MDN doc sprint, in-person and online, June 6 to 8

In just about one month, we’ll be holding our next documentation sprint for Mozilla Developer Network, building on the success of recent sprints in April and January, and October of 2010. This will be the first sprint since October to have a planned in-person gathering. Our main topical focus continues to be open web technologies, but contributions in any area of MDN are welcome.

Add this event to your calendar:

The in-person sprint will be immediately following and in the same location as the Open Help Conference, in Cincinnati, Ohio (June 3 to 5). The Open Help Conference brings together people working on community-based documentation and support (that is, both senses of “help”). There will be presentations, discussion, and collaboration throughout the weekend. (I’ll give a presentation on what we’re doing with MDN.) Following the conference, some open source projects, including MDN, are holding sprints.

If you’re able to join us in Cincinnati, awesome! Please let me know in advance (jswisher at mozilla dot com), so I can make sure we have enough space for you. If you want to help, but can’t come to Cincinnati, that’s wonderful, too. As usual, we’ll use the #devmo channel on to coordinate activities. You can find more details on the sprint planning page on the Mozilla wiki.
