The openSUSE-GNOME Team is proud to announce its Hack Day Series for the next two months. These events are designed to get the community involved in the various processes that make everything hum so wonderfully.
These events will be held bi-weekly on Thursdays, coinciding with our regular weekly team meetings. They are all day events with a scheduled coordinator monitoring the channel throughout the day. All hack days will occur in the #opensuse-gnome channel on the Freenode Network. We welcome everyone to join us. And don't be intimidated if you don't think you know how to do certain tasks. There will be experts around to guide you.
Below is our schedule: (Please note that topics of each hack day may change as we get closer. For updated information, subscribe to news.opensuse.org's calendar.)
