We're happy to announce the third Ansible Contributor Summit for 2021! It will be held over 2 days, on Tuesday September 28 and Friday October 1, from 13:00-21:00 UTC, and will be held online.
The Ansible Contributor Summit comprises working sessions with the Ansible community team and contributors in the community. In this event, we will discuss important issues affecting the Ansible community, with a focus on improving collaboration with our contributors.
If you are wondering what it means to "contribute" to Ansible, or if you have been using Ansible for a while and are thinking of ways to get more involved with the project and community, then Day 1 (September 28) is for you!
If you have already been contributing or participating in our previous Contributor Summits, you are still welcome to attend Day 1, however we think that Day 2 (October 1) will be more interesting for you.
In addition, we will be running a Hackathon in parallel throughout the week (Tuesday to Friday). This is for anyone with an interest in contributing to Ansible (with a focus on Collections), including those who have never contributed and are unsure of how to get started, existing contributors and maintainers, etc. all are welcome! Resources (people, labs, docs, etc.) will be available to help people through the entire process.
So, join us on Tuesday, Sept 28 and Friday, Oct 1. AnsibleFest will be happening in between these two days (Sept 29-30). The Contributor Summit agenda is still being worked on, please take a look at the event HackMD note, and bookmark it as it will be updated regularly to reflect the latest agenda.
Please register for this free event on Eventbrite (one or both days), so that we can contact you with updates such as how to join the conference, possible changes, follow-up surveys/feedback etc.
There will be live streaming of the event (links will be shared closer to the dates), and communication will be on Matrix and IRC. The Ansible Community has recently adopted Matrix as an official chat platform alongside IRC. You will need a Matrix account or a registered IRC nick to participate in the conversations. For more information, please see Communication - Real-time chat.
Note: registration for AnsibleFest is separate from the Contributor Summit. Please see here for more information.
We look forward to seeing you online at the Ansible Contributor Summit!
Feedback is really important to us so we can keep on improving the Contributor Experience for our wonderful Ansible Community.
If you missed the event or want to recap parts from it, the logs, presentations, and recordings are available in the Ansible Community wiki.
Thanks, and we look forward to continued collaboration with all of you in 2022!
