Hello friends and colleagues and fellow WebPlatformonians!

Announcing the next Seattle doc sprint:

Event: Seattle Doc Sprint at the University of Washington<http://www.washington.edu/>
Date: Saturday, November 2nd
Time: 9:00am-6:00pm (or what time you can spare)
Location: The HUB<http://hub.washington.edu/> at UW, Seattle
Details: the Eventbrite invitation<https://www.eventbrite.com/event/8903872723>

The IE Developer Marketing  and IE Dev Doc teams are sponsoring and running another WPD doc sprint<http://blog.webplatform.org/2013/09/switzerland-doc-sprint-sets-some-new-records/>. This time it is in the Hub<http://hub.washington.edu/> at the beautiful University of Washington campus<http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=university+of+washington+campus&FORM=HDRSC2>, here in Seattle (All those photos have sun, but I can't guarantee a lack of clouds, or rain, or hail. But the HUB is warm.).

We're hoping for a mix of participants from all walks of life: CS and Technical Writing students and faculty from local universities, professional web developers, hobbyist web developers, and maybe a few W3C spec editors. We're looking for people experienced with Webplatform and people new to the project. We're trying to make it clear that although no technical knowledge is required, those who know web development are preferred. And because of that we're planning on identifying different task levels to suit all abilities.

Participants will be regaled by a few short talks from industry experts, we'll roll up our sleeves and edit some web-developer documentation, of course we will provide a superior lunch, and then we'll roll out some SWAG*, including t-shirts and a Microsoft Surface. Everyone gets a shirt. Only one lucky attendee will receive a Surface. Additional snacks and other refreshments will be provided with a reception at the end of the day. We may also have bowling.

If you are in the area or can get to Seattle on the 2nd, please come! If you know of any colleagues, friends, faculty members, or students who would be interested in attending or knowing about the event, please forward this information. If you are going to any meet ups, church socials, BBQs, or any other gathering where you might meet folks interested in web development, let them know about this. As you know, the shirts are nice, it's great networking, and you'll see people working over our content. What's more fun on a Saturday afternoon?

(Oh, and the Huskies<http://www.gohuskies.com/SportSelect.dbml?SPID=126613> are on the road that day; there's no home game. Easy parking.)

Hope to see you there.


*Free stuff, giveaways.
