Docs Bootcamp 2013
What is it?
The OpenStack Docs Bootcamp offers a deep dive into the technical tools, workflows, and processes we use to create docs.openstack.org and api.openstack.org. Our goal is to give enough information that we'll create sustaining members who are core to OpenStack docs. The session isn't a book sprint and we don't expect huge output from the event itself, rather, we want to provide all the information we can so attendees can go back and become sustained contributors to the documentation efforts.
You can register to attend through this form.

This is free training, but we would like you to get yourself there with these things ready to go.
Bring a laptop to work on. Mac, Ubuntu, Fedora, and RHEL are known to work. I haven't installed git review on Windows so I don't know if a Windows laptop would work.
Have the First Time Contributor process finalized, including signing the CLA and getting git review working. The steps are: Documentation/HowTo#First-time_Contributors
You should have current tools installed for working with documentation. This includes Maven and an editor of choice for editing DocBook or WADL documents. Any DocBook editor will do such as Oxygen or Emacs with validation or vi: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_use_Emacs_for_XML_editing https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Editing_DocBook_with_Vi If you don't have a floating license for Oxygen, use Emacs or vi.
Have git installed, know the basics of git and git review, and have clones of the modules you'll be working on locally. Here are the repos we'll be working on:
git clone http://github.com/openstack/api-site.git
A demonstration of some Publican functionality is also planned as part of the activity around build tooling. If you wish to trial the demonstrated steps yourself it is recommended that you come with Publican 3.x installed. Publican 3.x is available in the standard repositories for these Linux distribution releases:
- Fedora 18 and Fedora 19: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/publican
- Debian Jessie (testing): http://packages.debian.org/jessie/publican
- Debian Sid (unstable): http://packages.debian.org/sid/publican
- Ubuntu Saucy Salamander (Development): https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/publican
Older releases of these distributions will likely provide Publican 2.8 or lower.
- Mac OS/X users will need to follow the steps listed at https://fedorahosted.org/publican/wiki/Installing_OSX
- Windows users can use the EXE installer to install Publican 3.0: http://jfearn.fedorapeople.org/en-US/Publican/3.2/html/Users_Guide/chap-Users_Guide-Installing_Publican.html#sect-Users_Guide-Installing_Publican-Windows_operating_systems
