A Moodle sprint is a designated time e.g. a weekend in which developers (and in future also testers and documentation writers) keep each other company whilst working on Moodle.
To take part in the sprint as a developer, simply choose a feature in Moodle 2.0 which needs finishing, or some 2.0 bugs which need fixing, then when you have time during the sprint period, get coding! Remember to drop by our Jabber developer chat room and/or #moodle on freenode at some point and let others know what you’re working on.
Note that the sprint is not organised in the sense that nobody will be told what to do! Developers with CVS access may continue what they are currently working on, and developers without access can post patches and comments in the tracker.
Details on how to take part in a sprint as a tester or a documentation writer will follow soon.
The first ever Moodle 2.0 sprint will be held on Saturday and Sunday 20-21 March 2010 - see Moodle 2.0 sprint this weekend.
Further sprints will be announced soon. Testers and documentation writers will be warmly welcomed to sprints after the release of Moodle 2.0 beta.
