I'm proud to announce our first *DSpace (Virtual) Development Sprint* on
the DSpace 7 codebase from May 7 to 18.

We are in search of developers interested in joining us for a two week
sprint (you need not be available for the entire two weeks).  Sprint
developers/participants will help us make enhancements / squash bugs in the
DSpace 7 browse/search interfaces. Tasks will be available for both the
DSpace 7 UI (using and REST API (using Java / Spring
technologies). See the Sprint Goals
<> for
more details.

*No experience with DSpace 7 codebase is necessary* (though experience with
prior DSpace releases is recommended). Sprint Coaches will be on hand to
help provide ongoing support. However, as no official training/workshops
will be held during the sprint, participants will be expected to be
proactive in learning new concepts via the provided learning resources
a video recorded Angular UI workshop). Don't worry though, we fully expect
participants to have questions and need ongoing support, which is where the
Sprint Coaches come in.

Whether you have contributed to DSpace in the past or not, this is great
opportunity to learn more about the DSpace 7 Angular UI and/or new REST
API.  If you've never participated in the open source development process,
this is a great way to "get your feet wet", and perhaps submit your very
first Pull Request (PR) to DSpace!

*Signups are open immediately *on the below wiki page. Feel free to pass
this along to colleagues!

If you want more information about the specific goals/tasks of this first
sprint, they can be found on the Sprint #1 subpage:

We hope you are able to join us in our first (of hopefully many) DSpace
Development Sprint!  As we like to say, DSpace would not exist without the
hard work and support of our worldwide community. We hope these sprints
will not only help move the software forward, but also allow developers
worldwide to learn more about collaboration in distributed, open source

If you or your team have questions, feel free to get in touch, either via
email or Slack <>.
