Making the web awesome DocSprint!

On 3rd November, we held the first ever Web Platform DocSprint at Adobe in San Francisco.

It was a joint effort by Adobe, the San Francisco HTML5 User Group, and Google. We had a great and very productive day resulting in 34 brand new contributors to the effort.

We made over 800 changes to the site that day. We had people working on tasks that ranged from simple to very complex. Some folks spent the whole day writing in-depth documentation while others dove into backend architecture tasks or created new prototypes of possible new site features.

This would be a very long post if we had to call everyone out by name, so we just want to thank all attendees for their hard work and dedication to move the web forward (you know who you are). A huge thanks to Marie Nedich for working her magic and providing breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks and awesome swag (the exclusive WPD notepads)! Everybody went home with a new WPD t-shirt as well (they came in just in time). Good times all around.

Now, it’s time to keep the momentum going! For starters, we are organizing another Web Platform DocSprint in Mountain View at the Google Office, currently scheduled for December 12th (more details and signup info will be sent out soon).

More community events will be posted on the WPD community events page. Even if you can’t make it in person, joining the IRC channel during that time is a great way to get help getting on board!
