Reid posted this to pdx-tech-calendar, but I thought the Rubyists might
want to know about it directly. Sorry if you get this twice. Come
contribute to an open source Portland Ruby project!
We're holding a Calagator Code Sprint on Saturday, July 26! You can find
the details at: http://calagator.org/events/1250466635
We'll be meeting from 1–5pm at Portland Code School to talk about the state
of the project, review issues, and write some code. There's been an upswing
in Calagator development in the last few months, with a bunch of new
contributors jumping in that we'd love to get to know a bit more. :)
Some folks have been discussing this over on the calagator-development list
<http://groups.google.com/group/calagator-development>, but I wanted to
make sure that anyone who was only following the GitHub issues also found
out about it. If you're following issues here and want to keep up with
low-traffic discussion about the project, I recommend joining that list.
Some possible topics include:
- What were our goals when Calagator started? What does the Portland
community need now?
- How can we make Calagator's UI friendly, responsive, and modern. I'm
updating some mockups of my ideas and would welcome discussion and ideas.
- Some very-useful enhancements exist in divergent forks of Calagator.
How can we best integrate these changes?
- How do we make Calagator easy to customize while also keeping things
as easy as possible for new contributors?
- What is the current state of the knowledge that a new contributor is
likely to have when approaching the project.
I hope you can join us!
