Remember, if you can’t make it to Vancouver, you can sign up for live streaming and still join in on the action! We will be setting up a BuddyPress group so you can also interact, ask questions to speakers, etc. instead of just watching.

There will be two tracks for Hack Day and something for all levels of experience! The only prerequisite is a desire to help out!
1) Developer / Designer Track – Town Square D
The developer track will be led by John James Jacoby, Boone Gorges, Ray Hoh, Joey Kudish and Jill Binder and will focus on getting participants up to speed with the BuddyPress development process and tools and then working on actual BuddyPress tickets in teams sorted by experience level.
2) BuddyPress for Beginners e-Book Track – Town Square C
The BuddyPress for Beginners e-Book track will be led by Cyri Jones. This track will provide a quick, overview of how to set up BuddyPress, and participants will discuss what they think would be helpful to include in the e-book guide. We will then break into teams to start writing some of the content. We will use the Anthologize WordPress plugin to create the e-book.
