Announcing May’s ZF Bug Hunting Days

      Comments Off on Announcing May’s ZF Bug Hunting Days

It’s that time of the month again! Thursday and Friday, 20-21 May 2010, Zend Framework will host its 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 a 100 issues closed in just two days. We’d like to see that kind of momentum in this week’s bug hunt. Whether they are big bugs or small bugs, remember: all bugs worthy of being squashed.

So why should you be interested?

  • You didn’t have a chance to go to TEK·X and want to commiserate with fellow developers in #zftalk.dev.
  • It’s Thursday at TEK·X and you haven’t touched code in a week.
  • 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.
  • Interact with other ZF developers.
  • 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 Thursday and Friday. 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!
