WordPress Hack Fest

Dion HulseWordPress is an open source project that relies on the help of volunteers. Here’s your chance to work on core WordPress code alongside people who do it every day.

Let’s put Montreal and our WordCamp on the WordPress community map in style, by coming together to jointly work on WordPress Core tickets and patch up some of your favourite bugs!. New contributors are welcome, but anyone who comes *must* work on core patches for WordPress.
If you have not contributed to WordPress before, prepare yourself by reading up on contributing to WordPress and setting up a development environment before you arrive. This is not a talk, it is a group activity, but Dion Hulse will be actively participating and giving guidance to any brave hackers who wish to join him.

Prerequisites: Anyone is welcome to join in, but having development experience, and a clear understanding of WordPress best practices (such as coding style, security, APIs, etc) will be invaluable to make it a great experience for all.
