This sprint will have an in-person component, as well as a virtual component.
- Start: 6 June 2011, 13:00 UTC / 9:00 am US Eastern / 6:00 am US Pacific
- End: 8 June 2011, 20:00 UTC / 4:00 pm US Eastern / 1:00 pm US Pacific
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.
- The in-person gathering will be in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. It will be immediately following and at the same location as the Open Help Conference.
NOTE: Sponsorship is available for community volunteers to travel to and stay in Cincinnati. Contact (jswisher at mozilla dot com) if you are a volunteer and want to join us in person.
- Coordinate via #devmo on irc.mozilla.org, for both in-person and online participants.
See our Etherpad for notes about who is doing or has done what.

Tips for travelers
For attendees coming from outside the US:
- If you are bringing a mobile phone, make sure you have a SIM card and billing plan that works for the US.
- The US (along with a few under-developed countries in Africa) still uses magnetic-stripes rather than RFID chips for credit cards. Check with your bank to see if your credit card will work in the US. Alternatively, you can use a (magnetic-stripe) ATM card to get US dollars as you need them. Be aware that US banks usually add a small fee ($1-$3) to ATM transactions.
- We will provide "universal" power strips during the sprint. But you'll need a plug adapter and step-down power converter to plug in your laptop or other devices elsewhere.
