WebPlatform.org is an open community of developers building resources for a better web, regardless of brand, browser or platform. Anyone can contribute and each person who does makes it stronger. WebPlatform.org is convened by the W3C and is made possible through the support of the Web Platform Stewards. You did not hear about WebPlatform.org yet? Watch this short introductionary movie:
WebPlatform.org is a Wiki, and as such it is defined by actual and comprehensive content. Doc Sprints exist to continuosly build up and extend the documentation. At these Hackathon-style events an introduction to the mechanics of the Wiki as well as a lot of inspiration and starting points to begin your contribution are provided.
Experienced experts from both the Web Platform Stewards as well as the contributing community are on location to provide guidance. Your attendance will not only mean a lot of fun and serve the greater good – we will also serve you with drinks and food, there is a nice party and giveaways, and definetely enough time to network with other attendants.
After the first two events of this kind at Adobe in San Francisco and at Google in Mountain View the first ever european Doc Sprint is taking off on February 8 and 9 2013 in Berlin.
The precise location will be selected based on the number of registrations mid of January – we want to provide an ideal setting and definetely get in everybody that is interested to attend. Update Jan 15, 2013: I’ve found a location that I think could not be better for hosting our Doc Sprint:
Brunnenstr. 64, 13355 Berlin
Subway U8 “Voltastraße”
Please help to communicate the event across your channels to ensure everybody is aware and has a chance to register.
You want to run your own Doc Sprint?

Ich wäre wirklich gerne gekommen. Aber der Termin ist sehr ungünstig: das Karnevalswochenende. Und ich bekomme Besuch.
Schade. Ausserhalb der tollen Tage hätte ich das noch toller gefunden :-)
Vielleicht ein nächstes Mal woanders in Deutschland.

@Flocke: Das ist allerdings wirklich schade! Nun denn, zum Glück ist nicht ganz Europa im Karnevalsfieber! ;oD=
Beim nächsten Mal!

Oh yeah, definitely going to attend. Awesome concept, and I’d love to finally be able to share some of my knowledge in a way that gives something back to the community.
