This month on CTFEDs we’re having a hackathon. We’ll be selecting a handful of sites of local LGBT organisations with a view to improving them. The focus will be on Front-end performance: making the sites better, faster, and cheaper for their users. (We’re still figuring out which sites we’ll be working on, all nominations welcome :) ).

Teams will be formed around which organisation you're interested in and the mix of skills and experience we have available on the day. We'll benchmark site performance and prioritise what to work on from there.

The workshop will start at 9am sharp. Please arrive promptly because it will be a packed day. Thank you! :)

About you

- You should be familiar with HTML and CSS. Some knowledge of JavaScript will probably come in handy too.

- WordPress is a popular choice for the Content Management Systems of some of the sites we’ll be looking at, so familiarity with WordPress (and with editing Themes and Plugins) will be useful.

- Bring your laptop and charger.
