codeFest PHP Quebec 2.1


May 16th-18th 2008


  • Montréal, Canada and online

Maybe at Jardin Tiki? Image


"Codefest" or "Tikifest" events generally have the following goals:

  1. To raise awareness amongst the broader coder community of selected projects/topics.
  2. To increase volunteer participation in these projects and train new coders.
  3. To network with users to discuss how to meet real user requirements.
  4. To actually code something during the event.

The only difference between a "Codefest" and a "Tikifest" is that the latter is more focused on wikis, while the first could be on more general web content management or Web 2.0.

For example, at the January 08 Codefest held in Montreal, the topics were "Microformats" and "Wiki Translation". For Microformats, a number of CMS added or enhanced support for it, and support for hCalendar was added to TikiWiki. For "Wiki Translation", we had a workshop to define user requirements and the overall plan of the project.

Reports of that event: Montreal Tech Watch - Microformats Montreal Tech Watch - Wiki Translation
