Joomla! Doc Sprints

From Joomla! Documentation

Revision as of 14:25, 5 January 2008 by Chris Davenport (Talk | contribs)

Welcome to the first world-wide Joomla! Doc Camp. Following on from the huge success of the Joomla! 1.5 bug squashing event, please join us for a weekend of authoring at locations around the planet. We have tasks for everyone; coders and non-coders alike. Our aim is to dramatically increase the volume of documentation available for Joomla! 1.5.

This wiki will be used as the central resource for coordinating efforts and accumulating results from this event. After the event it will become a new central hub for the official Joomla! documentation.
