What: We'll be having a WebGUI hackathon at the WUC this year. It will be a good place to learn how to code for or template WebGUI, or to refine your skills, or even help out with new documentation. Work on your own projects, or we'll show you how you can help work on the core.
Where: Concourse Hotel, Meeting Room University AB. PlainBlack has kindly offered to sponsor the venue.
When: Wednesday, September 9th from 9am to 5pm. (The day before the WUC.)
Who: The Hackathon is open to all community members, regardless of skill/experience level. Everyone's welcome. We expect to have developers, designer, and enthusiastic WebGUI users in attendence. If you're new to the WebGUI community the Hackathon will be a great way to make some friends prior to the conference, and there will be plenty of experienced folk on hand if you have a great WebGUI RFE idea but don't know where to start. Add your name to the list if you plan on attending (it's ok to just turn up on the day too).
Hackathon Project Ideas
Please list your Hackathon project ideas below, along with an RFE link if relevant, and list your name next to the project(s) you're interested in. Projects can involve anything WebGUI related: bug fixing, RFEs, brainstorming, designing, testing, documenting, bazaar items.. you name it! It would be a good idea to submit RFEs
prior to the Hackathon for any features that you want to commit to the
WebGUI core, although as you can see above JT is going to be there so you can always try
your luck at bribing him on the day.
