Open invitation for JUX Code sprint 8-9 July 2013

I’d like to extend an open invitation, on behalf of the Joomla User eXperience (JUX) Team, to the first official JUX Code Sprint:

JUX Code sprint 8-9 July 2013

Following the incredible results from the impromptu bug squashing session held at J&Beyond 2013 the JUX Team has decided to organise a formal JUX Code Sprint, in time for the 3.2 release.

We want to draw together Joomla community members, their laptops, caffeinated beverages and a predefined ‘hit list’ of proposed UI/UX improvements and then get things done!

The code sprint is open to anyone who wants to join to work efficiently with us.  But, please realise that this is not a conference, or seminar, it is a planned working event intended to quickly fix outstanding issues, and add new features prior to 3.2. If you are coming please let me know (contact details below) so that we can arrange lunch and refreshments and, most importantly, a seat, power socket and internet connection, for everyone!

Have time on Monday July 8th and Tuesday 9th to work on coding tasks, but can't join physically ? No problem ! Please simply reply to this thread, add your skype id to your JUX forum profile, so we can contact you on Monday morning 8th around 9:30 am UK time.

Of course, there’s no need to wait for the code sprint if you have time to contribute improvements. Just check already identified tasks here: UX Tasks identified for Joomla 3.2 then volunteer here: Ready to contribute ? and start working to make Joomla 3.2 great today!
