Google Summer of Code Doc Camp - a partnership of GSoC, Aspiration and FLOSS Manuals.
Google Summer of Code in collaboration with Aspiration and FLOSS Manuals is hosting a "Doc Sprint Camp" at Google's Mountain View headquarters (California) Dec 3 - 7, 2012.
The 2012 Doc Camp will feature:
1) An unconference on free software documentation topics - facilitated by Aspiration
2) 2-5 Book Sprints to produce books on free softwares - facilitated by FLOSS Manuals
Building on the success of the 2011 GSoC Doc Camp we are proud to bring you the 2012 GSoC Doc Camp. Like the previous event the 2012 GSoC Doc Camp is a place for free software communities to meet, create a book for their project, attract new people to their efforts, and share their documentation experiences. The camp aims to improve free documentation materials and skills in free software projects and individuals and help form the identity of the emergent free documentation sector.
Individuals and projects can apply. Food and accommodation for all individuals will be provided and travel support (full or partial) can also
be applied for.
Be a part of this exciting event – propose a Book Sprint on your favorite free software or come and help others write a book on their favorite project. Guaranteed to be a lot of fun, productive, and a fantastic place to advance your documentation efforts and experiences.
