> Hi everybody,
> On Saturday 11/3 we held the first ever Web Platform DocSprint at Adobe in San Francisco. It was a joint effort by Adobe, the San Francisco HTML5 User Group, and Google. We had a great and very productive day and onboarded 34 brand new members. The majority of the 50-60 attendees stayed the whole day, from 9 am until after 5 pm) and, from reading through the logs, I see that we made over 800 changes to the site that day. We had people working on tasks that ranged from simple to very complex. Some folks spent the whole day writing in-depth documentation while others dove into backend architecture tasks or created new prototypes of possible new site features.
> This would be a very long mail if I had to call everyone out by name, so I just want to thank all attendees for their hard work and dedication to move the web forward (you know who you are). A huge thanks to Adobe for not only hosting the event, but also providing breakfast, lunch, dinner, a full bar, and awesome swag (the exclusive WPD notepads)! Everybody went home with a new WPD t-shirt as well (they came in just in time). Good times all around.
> So now it's time to keep the momentum going!
> For starters, Scott Rowe, Alex Komoroske, and I are organizing another Web Platform DocSprint in Mountain View at the Google Office and that event is scheduled for December 13th (more details and signup info will be sent out soon). I also talked to Andre Jay Meissner (Adobe, Germany) this morning and he is going to organize an event in Germany soon. I hope we will start many of these events world wide in the near future. To make this process easier, I will post some links to resources we can use to make it easier to host these events on the community page; I'd like to create a "Web Platform DocSprint in a Box" page where we can all share best practices, tracking sheet templates, and other helpful resources.
