Docathon is a week-long event beginning Monday, 6 March 2017, for which people register as participants then improve documentation across a variety of open source projects. I’m pleased to announce that Julia has joined the party, alongside friends like Jupyter and Matplotlib, as a registered project.
I encourage anyone who’s interested to sign up as a Docathon participant and contribute remotely or attend a Docathon meetup in Berkeley, California, Seattle, Washington, or New York, New York. Of course you’re still welcome to contribute to documentation without registration just as you would normally, but events are fun!
Some links to help get you started as a Docathon participant:
- Docathon’s participant page (includes signup link)
- Docathon’s “how to contribute”
- Julia’s contribution guidelines (includes section on improving docs)
- GitHub project tracking Docathon-friendly Julia issues
The Julia project maintainers will be there to guide you along the way. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
To all participants, thanks and have fun!
