Have you wanted to get involved at the Hacktory, but you’re not sure how? Most of our calls for volunteers involve helping out with public events & classes, but here’s one for people who like to work with words: this Saturday, June 22, we’re having a work party to knock off a pile of documentation-related tasks, and you’re invited! We’re hoping to finish migrating some old documents from Google to our new wiki; create how-tos for new volunteers working with our WordPress website, publicizing events, and other popular tasks; transcribe stories from recent Hacking the Gender Gap workshops; and other updates that will help the Hacktory keep working effectively.
We’ll start around noon with a brief rundown of tasks and an optional lesson on wiki markup. Anyone with a laptop and the ability to write a how-to is encouraged to participate. Folks are welcome to join us virtually; I’ll send out a PiratePad at the beginning of the day with details on how to stay in touch. Snacks & pizza will be provided. Please RSVP with dietary restrictions or any questions to bergey at thehacktory dot org.
