The event is a good opportunity to get hands-on experience as a developer and contributor to open source software. Through the event, you'll learn about this project and its history, including filing and reading bugs in Bugzilla; once the event is over, we'll help you join the main MediaWiki development list.
If you fill out this form, we'll send you a reminder email before the event starts, and email you afterward with an exit survey.
The event takes place on the #mediawiki IRC channel. (More info here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_on_IRC ). No programming experience is required; all you need is a computer with an Internet connection.
