Event description


MvvmCross is one of the projects taking part in the inaugural .NET Summer Hackfest, organized by the .NET Foundation! Running for two weeks from August 21st to September 1st, 2017 , the MvvmCross session will see contributors from around the world working together to build and improve the framework, with two exciting in-person events also planned! Participation is open to all, whether you are a first-time or long-time contributor.

The main goals are two:

  • Convert MvvmCross to the .NET Standard
  • Update samples to latest version
  • Add more async Task based code
  • Update and create more website content
  • Improve the documentation
  • Work on up-for-grabs issues
  • Join the .NET Foundation


How does it work?

We have created a new GitHub project which lists all of the tasks planned during the two week period. When you register, you can ask to be assigned a problem and make a pull request!

The MvvmCross Core team will review every new issue and request a request as soon as possible in the two week. Hackfest to make the experience of contributing as smooth as possible.
