#Fixit Event June 2016

Google runs internal fixit weeks. During these weeks the teams set aside all critical deadlines, showstopper bugs, regular development – everything – to pull together to achieve a common goal. And, we invite the Kubernetes community to join the June 2016 fixit.

Please take a look at anything that is kind/flake or, with our 1.4 focus on “mean time to dopamine” for our users, help team/ux or spend time triaging, de-duplicating, or closing issues that were opened before 20160101 or check out the issues in our docs repository. All of these avenues will help Kubernetes improve the user and developer experiences with the project.

Another important piece of fixit culture is rewards. Everyone who contributes (as measured by engagements on Github) between 627 and 71 will receive Kubernetes stickers and all merged PRs that are contributed during the fixit will will receive a Kubernetes embroidered patch.

#But, wait, there’s more!

Since improvement isn’t only about code and issues, we’d like to also help grow our community skills. And, to that end, below is a schedule of some interesting content and community events.

The community meeting calendar is available as an iCal to subscribe to (simply copy and paste the url into any calendar product that supports the iCal format) or html to view. All sessions listed below are listed on the community calendar and will be broadcast on the community meeting URL.

A live debugging session. – Janet Kuo

It’s possible to learn so much while watching others debug. One of our team members will debug a problem during a video session. They will show the community tricks and informal techniques required to solve problems live.
