Community Project Code-Drive

Location: D135-136 Level: Novice

Project Owners: Do you have a project you’d like to work with other
people on? Maybe it’s an established Open Source project. Maybe it’s
a new idea. Come find like-minded developers and spend the day
hacking together. To participate, post your project on the Code Drive wiki page.

Developers: Are you looking to get involved in an Open Source project
but need a bootstrapping session to get you started? Looking for
chances to meet other developers and establish collaborative working
relationships? Looking to learn by collaborating with others? Come
find a project and spend the day sitting side-by-side with one or more
of its developers learning the ropes and contributing code. See a list of projects on the Code Drive wiki.

RailsConf is the largest physical gathering of Ruby and Rails
developers internationally. Let’s take advantage of
all being in one place at the same time AND take the chance to give
something back to the projects and community
which we so greatly benefit from.

In the morning, project leaders and representatives will have a chance
to make a short pitch for their projects and
the work they hope to get done. For the rest of the day, groups will
self-organize and write code! Roll up your sleeves
and prepare to learn, teach, and most importantly, contribute.

To see a list of projects being worked on at the Community Project Code-Drive, or to add your own, check out the wiki page.
