This will be primarily a virtual (online) sprint, with no centralized in-person meet-up. You are encouraged to organize a local meet-up of doc sprinters in your area.


  • Start: 12 August, 14:00 UTC (7:00am US PT, 10:00am US ET, 16:00 CET)
  • End: 13 August, 23:59 UTC (5:00pm US PT, 8:00pm US ET, 2:00 14 April CET)

You are welcome to start earlier or continue later, but this time frame is when you are likely to find other people online working on MDN. Obviously, you do not have to participate the entire time; drop in when it's convenient, and sleep when you need to.

Here is a schedule for meetings in IRC during the sprint:
