Webplatform.org continues to grow in all facets: breadth of content, accuracy, community health, and site usefulness. It’s a testament to the vibrancy of our community that we now have almost twenty thousand registered users! And though we are making great progress in building our “community-driven site that aims to become a comprehensive and authoritative source for web developer documentation,” there are still plenty of opportunities to make significant contributions.
One of the most important ways we advance our goals is through our Doc Sprints. We’ve organized successful doc sprints in cities in the US and Europe, and at each one, we’ve realized a number of goals:
- People new to Webplatform learn how to get started as contributors.
- Experienced contributors dive in to the content and make rapid progress.
- Face-to-face contact builds relationships and networks.
- Great ideas germinate and grow through collaboration.
- Bugs get fixed on the spot.
- Mini projects spring up and get prototyped.
But mostly, these have provided a time to get together and geek out. So, come geek out!
Welcome to Seattle!
