MDN Documentation Sprints

A document sprint is a short time period, usually two to three days, when people from the community gather, either in person, or for virtual sprints on IRC, for focused effort on writing documentation for MDN.

Document sprints are usually held over weekends and are advertised with a starting and finishing time. These times are useful indicators of when Mozilla staff will be participating, obviously they will sleep at night. Feel free to participate outside the times advertised if you wish.

If you have been considering participating in the documentation process a document sprint is the ideal opportunity to get started as you can be sure that there will be a large number of people available to help you with any issues that you may have.
