JDOC:Joomla! Doc Sprints
From Joomla! Documentation
Welcome to the coordination page for all Joomla! documentation sprints. Besides events such as a dedicated Joomla Doc Sprints, documentation sprints can be included at Code Sprints, Pizza, Bugs & Fun and other similar events where working to improve Joomla documentation is encouraged and welcomed.
Please join us for these documentation events at locations around the planet or virtually. We have tasks for everyone: coders, non-coders and documentation translators. Our aim is to dramatically improve the quality of documentation available for Joomla! users and developers.
Here you find a list of our upcoming events: Upcoming Joomla! Events Worldwide
