Announcing The June ZF Bug Hunting Days

June 17, 2010

Uncategorized

It’s that time of the month again- but this time with a twist! Today, Tomorrow and Saturday, 17-19 June 2010, Zend Framework will host its monthly bug hunt. You read that right! We are adding Saturday into the event for those developers who want to do a little weekend bug hunting. 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 a 100 issues closed in just two days. We’d like to see that kind of momentum in this week’s bug hunt. As we just hit issue number #10000 in our issue tracker, which means there is no shortage of resolvable bugs. Whether they are big bugs or small bugs, remember this: all bugs worthy of being squashed.

So why should you be interested?

  • Improve your coding skillz by being around some of PHP’s top developers in #zftalk.dev while hunting for bugs.
  • Win a t-shirt — the individual who resolves or assists in resolving the most issues wins a Zend Framework t-shirt!
  • 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.
  • Squashing bugs feels good!

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 Today and Tomorrow. If you would like more information on specifics of participating, read our guide.

Looking forward to seeing you at this month’s Bug Hunt Days!
