Training, Talks and Sprint

Training sessions

Tuesday morning we start Wagtail Space with training sessions. Are you new to Wagtail and want to get up and running? Then these training sessions are for you!

We need more experienced developers to help out. If you would like to share your knowledge, let us know!

There are a few (experienced) training attendees. We decided that the training will be in Q&A style. First we’ll decide what we’d like to learn and prioritise the questions, then we will answer by pair programming. Finally we present the results and share the code.


Tuesday afternoon will be Talks (15min + 5min Q&A) and Lightning talks (about π min). 

Current confirmed talks:

  • Tom Dyson: Wagtail Experiments - easy A/B testing for your Wagtail sites
  • Mike Dingjan: Wagtailtrans - Support multiple languages for your Wagtail site
  • Ben van't Ende: Building an Open Source Community
  • Mike Overkamp: File download counter
  • Daniele Procida: Deploy Wagtail to the Divio Cloud
  • Rob Moorman: Static Site
  • Edd Baldry: Wagtail & Agile
  • Edd Baldry: Modular StreamField app
  • Fabrique: All about Wagtail
  • Matt Wescott: The Zen of Wagtail

If you like to give a (lightning) talk let us know.

Possible topics:

  • Wagtail Core Development
  • How to contribute
  • Your awesome project/product
  • Your sprint proposal
  • ...


During the sprint we will improve the Wagtail core. The exact sprint goals are not decided yet. They won't be fixed until the sprint kickoff session. That said, think of your favourite issue/feature you like to improve.

Please add any ideas you have regarding the sprint, such as things you'd like (other people) to work on, to this document: https://goo.gl/1kgHJE
