Puppet Triage-A-Thon October 2013_ENDED
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 from 1:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
Interested in contributing to Puppet? Want to come hang out with fun people and do geeky things all day? Come to our Triage-A-Thon on Wednesday, October 2nd! You can participate virtually from anywhere in the world, or join us in person in our office in Portland, OR.
Our goal is to review all the open tickets in the Puppet and Module projects to:
- Update and confirm that issues are still relevant
- Ensure tickets are in the right status and all the right information is present to fix the problem
- Close any invalid or no longer relevant tickets
We’ll assign blocks of tickets to every participant, explain what you need to do, and provide people on the ground to answer questions and help you make decisions. If you want a few more details about how you can help, you should read about the process we use to triage bugs.
Participate online worldwide: Virtually we’ll provide an IRC channel (#puppethack), IM, and rewards for people who triage tickets and get involved. The Triage-a-Thon will be happening online from 1am-5pm PDT so that our friends and employees outside the US can also participate, so drop in any time that works for you.
If you live in Portland, Oregon: Join us in person at our office in the Pearl! We'll provide breakfast, coffee, a delicious lunch, snacks and space in our office. Please bring a laptop computer with you. The in-office portion of the Triage-a-Thon starts at 9am, and runs all day, so you're welcome to drop in at any point.
The first 200 people who help for at least 2 hours will be sent a special edition Puppet Triage-a-Thon 2013 t-shirt, and we'll have additional prizes for top participants!
Puppet Triage-a-Thons will be quarterly (4x a year), alternating between weekdays and weekends so that everyone has a chance to participate.
All attendees and participants at Puppet Labs events must adhere to our Community Guidelines and Event Code of Conduct.
