State of the Docs, March 30, 2012

This post got stuck in Drafts without getting published. Publishing now for the record.

Tristan Nitot wrote a blog post describing how MDN does documentation the Mozilla way. It also gives a good summary of ways that you can help out.

Upcoming events

Plans are proceeding for the next MDN documentation sprint, April 27 to 29. The first day (Friday) will be the Mozilla office in Mountain View, California, and the weekend days will be in the San Francisco office. If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, and you’d like to join us on any of those days, you’re definitely welcome. Just contact me to let me know. If you’re located elsewhere, you’re welcome to join us remotely.

Work is proceeding apace on Kuma, the new wiki platform that our splendid WebDev team is creating for MDN. We will be holding a test day on Friday, April 20, to bang on it on a staging server. If you’re a regular writer, editor, or localizer on MDN, we’d appreciate your help. Details about that event are forthcoming.
