This year, Write the Docs will have a new Writing Day, modeled after the concept of sprints from the open source world. The idea is simple: to get a bunch of interesting people in a room together and have them work towards shared goals.
To make the most out of the Writing Day, we recommend that you either come with a project, or be ready and willing to contribute to someone else’s project.
Here are some examples of projects that you might want to work on:
You get the idea.
All this adds up to a room full of smart people sharing your problems, your passion, and your goals. So be ready to learn some new things and to teach others what you know.
Even if you feel as though you don’t know that much, we know you have a lot to offer. Come surprise yourself with how much you can share.
Please bring a computer or some other mechanism with which to create written words.
We’ll be creating and editing content, so make sure that you have the tools you need to contribute.
Check out our beginners guide to writing documentation. This should help you get started, and give you some ideas for how you can contribute to a project that you love.
We have a website for our community, but it kinda sucks. Help us make it better by adding content, archiving old talks and notes, or just making it more friendly in general. Remember, you are the community.
A guide to writing documentation. Help us make this guide great for people who want to write docs, but don’t know where to start.
You can contribute by writing technical articles, copy-editing, writing code samples, or translating pages. MDN staff will be there to help out.
Yup. We know you need better docs. We do too. Make it happen.
Send us an email or pull request with your project and a short paragraph about what you need help with, and we’ll include it here.
