What

A tradition in the TikiWiki community, a TikiFest is when there is a meeting between at least 2 TikiWiki contributors that don't usually meet. This is an opportunity, usually, to drink adult beverages, get some laptops out and code wildly in group sessions and/or discuss about wiki technology and culture, etc. depending the mood and context. It is a great opportunity for Tiki users and Tiki power users to meet some of the developers and learn more stuff :-)

Those that can't attend physically will participate online (bug tracker, chat, forums, mailing lists and the wiki of course)

This will also be the time to finalize and launch TikiWiki 3.0!

Cocktail

Monday, May 11th, from 17h to 21h
This is a friendly and social event for anyone interested in wikis, collaboration, open source, translation, open knowledge and any remotely-related topics :-).

  1. http://doc.tikiwiki.org/Tiki3, and if possible, many places where "version 3.0"specific info + screenshots should be added. No coding skills required!
  2. Add some content in all the (missing) documentation pages linked from Tiki 3:
