Mid year hackfest! (SilverStripe Auckland)

**IMPORTANT NOTE: 

to get into the auckland building you’ll need to text Damian (tractorcow) at[masked], as the lift requires a swipe card**

It's that time again... time to get together and work on SilverStripe core improvements, modules and your own projects.

We also encourage new users to pop along if you need some help getting started or setup on your local machine using best practices (an experienced SilverStripe developer will be on hand to help).

For more seasoned SilverStripers we'll look to set some areas of the 3.2 version of SilverStripe (the next future version) that you might be able to work on or any issues and bugs in the current 3.1 version.

Please leave us some comments to let us know what you might like to see or do at the hackfest. 

We will also be running a parallel hackfest on the same day down in the SilverStripe Wellington office and look to video conference in with them during the day (http://www.meetup.com/SilverStripe-Wellington-Meetup-Group/events/189491772/).

Happy hacking.

      I should have clarified -- mine was all in PHPDoc rather than /docs, as we use PhpStorm at work and often notice incorrect or out of date intellisense. However we have often discussed contributing to the documentation itself, so I would love to work with you guys on that. I'll email you about it and maybe we can deduct l dedicate some resource to it from time to time!

    Is everyone able to bring laptops? Let me know if there is any issues and I'll see what I can do about some spares.

      Any last takers, in this case I won't be ordering any extra laptops for this hackfest.

      It takes as long as you want to work on code and projects :)

    If we can work on pretty much our own projects I'd like to look at a secure single page app through the use of SS with either EmberJS and or AngularJS.

    I'm currently looking into documentation issues, I would like to get someone up at the AK hackfest to run a facilitated discussion around how we might improve them and perhaps look to map out a set of categories/taxonomy to help reorganise the docs in a more meaningful way.

      I'll look at setting up a shared google doc for people to contribute to on the day.

      I plan to work on a similar thing, though on the code side. Those of us using advanced IDEs like PhpStorm and Netbeans often find code intel breaking because of outdated or incorrectly-written PhpDoc blocks, and this will be a good opportunity to do a fairly decent refactor to fix it.

    I will be contributing through my usual medium... FOOD
