Moodle Hack/Doc Fest hits Indianapolis in Summer 2016

Moodle Hack/Doc Fest — that biannual summer camp for instructional technologists, web developers, and other folks who work with Moodle — hits Indianapolis this summer. It’s being held Tuesday, June 21 through Thursday, June 23, 2016 at Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. A pre-Hack/Doc documentation and coding sprint will be held Monday, June 20, 2016.

It’s one of my favorite conferences (well, unconference really) because it lets me do something I don’t get to do a lot of in my current job: delve deeply into Moodle. Oh, I still spend a fair amount of time around Moodle, and talking about Moodle, but as the director of web development my days of delving deep into Moodle to figure out gnarly grade book issues or fix strange and existing bugs are long gone. Hack/Doc is a chance to get back to those roots, and to hangout out with other liberal arts college folks who use the platform.

It’s also a chance to get back to Indianapolis. Part of my extended family lives in Indiana, and it’s a good opportunity to catch up with them. Normally I’d also try to get in a little minor league baseball, but unfortunately the Indianapolis Indians are out of town that week. There are four other minor league teams in Indiana, but alas they are all too far to easily get to during this conference.
