This upcoming Thursday and Friday, 18-19 February 2010, Zend Framework will host its fifth monthly bug hunt. For those of you unfamiliar with the event, each month, we organize the community to help reduce the number of open issues reported against the framework. Past events have netted over 100 issue closures over each two-day period; let’s keep up the momentum!
The rules and rewards are simple: Supply patches or direct commits that resolve open issues. The individual who resolves or assists in resolving the most issues during the bug hunt wins a Zend Framework t-shirt!
Why should you be interested?
- Help improve the overall quality of the code you’re already using
- Fix issues that have been affecting you
- Save you and your company time spent managing your own patches to ZF, and move the maintenance upstream by patching the framework itself
- Learn valuable Quality Assurance skills
- Read more reasons
If you want to help out, please make sure you have a CLA on file with us, and then join us in the #zftalk.dev channel on Freenode on Thursday and Friday. If you would like more information on specifics of participating, please read our guide in the wiki.
Looking forward to seeing you at this month’s Bug Hunt Days!
