BLUG Technical: Blug Spat, a Competitive Bugsplat
BLUG SPAT... Open bug splat competition - create PRs to open source projects. * you can only start working at 6pm on the night (feel free to arrive early to get set up though), and will be scored only on work submitted to projects by midnight (remoting after you've been here is fine, if you head off at 8ish, say) * you can't have tackled or explored a solution before, or be overly familiar with maintainers * points weighted to a variety of contributions types on things you don't usually work with! * technical and non-technical - decent points for docs, testing, etc. * early career bonus scoring * best overall company award... * upper limit on qualifying PRs - quality not quantity peeps * bonus points if you get it accepted by New Year (polishing and responding to reviewer comments after Dec 11 to get it merged is absolutely fine) * most winners announced early in Jan, but a couple by the next day Equally, you're welcome to turn up and watch, chat or just submit PRs without competing. This is going to be completely tongue-in-cheek, so don't expect it to be fair, or unbiased, and will be partially self-scored. There are unlikely to be prizes (or at least any serious ones), but if you're keen to sponsor one, drop me a line. Full scoring sheet undergoing proofing, and will be available. Vietnamese themed food planned. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks planned. PLEASE SUPPLY ANY DIETARY REQUIREMENTS IN ADVANCE, EVEN IF YOU THINK WE KNOW! (Meetup organizer message works fine) We'll have a couple of non-meat Banh Mi by default, but they will prioritized for those who've let us know.
