Sprint day

The PreviousNext team is sponsoring and helping to run the DrupalGov 2020 Sprint Day on Wednesday 4 November, and there are a few things you can do now to hit the ground running on the day.

This year the DrupalGov sprint will be virtual 

We’ll start the day with a brief Zoom meeting to introduce the organisers, and outline how the day will run.

We’ll use #australia-nz Drupal Slack as the main communication channel, with ad hoc Zoom or Meet video calls for those who want to dive deeper into a topic.

For the majority of the day, we’ll be using Slack threads to keep track of sprint topics and reduce the noise in the main channel.
