This is a virtual sprint, with no central gathering. However, local meet-ups are encouraged.


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.

Quick coordination etherpad used during the sprint [ ]. Feel free to use it!

Here are some other suggestions of things to work on.

Suggest a topic, either that you want to work on, or that you'd like to see done by someone.


If you're an engineer/developer, please consider joining us! Even if you don't write, it'd be great if you popped into #devmo. There are lots of ways you can help:

  • Just be in IRC to answer questions from the writing team.
    • Join #devmo
    • Announce that you're a developer who knows about <X> and that you're willing and able to answer questions.
    • Bask in the warm glow of the writing team's love and respect.
  • Do some technical reviews!
