Bug Squashing Party in Dublin

Come and help get Wheezy released!

We will gather to collectively fix bugs and help each other while having some fun. Visits to the pub are assured after a day of hard work!

Everybody is invited, even newcomers! I will try to prepare some introductory talks for people who has never done this before, and the whole point of getting together is to help each other!

There is no need to be a programmer to help, there are plenty of tasks for everyone! There are lots of bugs for fix!

See vorlon's intro to RC bug squashing for some useful tips.

When

Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of September, 2012. We'll start at 11:00, finishing around 19:00.

Where

Where to stay

If you do not live in Dublin and don't know where to stay, but would like to come, then please indicate in the table above that you need crash space - and give your email address so we can contact you.

How to help

The logistics are still not sorted out, but spreading the word is already a good way to help!

If you want to volunteer giving a short introductory talk for the BSP, that'd be fab!
