I want to announce that we will be having a YWAMKB Sprint meeting here in Brussels May 11-15. You are all welcome to come!
What is a Sprint you may ask? Well, it is a time to meet and talk and WORK hard at improving the KB. As the KB contributers are a virtual team having some good face to face time should give us all some encouragement to keep developing the KB.
So who is it for?
- Writers, who want to develop articles and learn how to use the KB better. We will write lots of new articles in the Sprint
- Organisers, who are good at bringing sensible structure to the KB. We need to work on making the structure clearer in order to bring the articles closer to those looking for them.
- Artists, who can improve the look and feel of the site
- Educators, who can help to improve articles, find the gaps in the knowledge and help people to really learn well with the KB.
- System-admins, who can keep the underlying code in good order, the system secure and the data backed-up.
- ANYONE, who cares about using the KB to pass on to others the wisdom and practical advise you have gained.
The cost will be low! As low as I can make it. Food and a small daily charge for a bed in the YWAM Base here in Brussels. Don’t let finances be a hurdle – if you want to come we will see what we can do.
More details will appear soon, but please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm your interest.
If the dates do not fall in happy places for you or travel would be ridiculously expensive don’t fret as we will try to have Skype participation available and also an open Instant Messaging channel that you can drop in and out of during the sprint! Your virtual participation is welcomed and encouraged. But sadly you can’t drink the Belgium beer online so personal presence is preferred!
I look forward to hearing from you!
