Celebrate Open Source with a Bug Squashing Event on May 3rd at 11am ET

Join ByWater and other Koha community members on Tuesday, May 3rd at 11 am ET for our Open Source Live event where we will squash some bugs and talk open source!

Bug Squashing

For the past few years, ByWater has embraced the idea of getting together for a few hours to work on Koha as a group. This opportunity will allow Koha users to work together to resolve open bugs. We will also talk about testing, signing off, quality assurance, patchwriting, and documentation. The more librarians involved in this the better!
