Wagtail Space 2018

Train, talk, listen, sprint and fly!

The next Wagtail Space will take place from 13 to 15 March 2019 in Arnhem, The Netherlands.

Wagtail Space brings you Wagtail (lightning) talks and a Wagtail sprint. There is room for over 50 attendees. To make sure you won’t only be working, there are a few social events, for example a closing party on Friday evening.

All Wagtail enthusiast are welcome, regardless of their role. If you are a beginner, we will get you up and running, more advanced developers can dive in deep. There will be Wagtail core developers attending.

Talks & Sprint


On Friday there will be Talks (15min + 5min Q&A) and Lightning talks (about 7 min). 

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

So far, the following people have offered to speak:

  • Lisa Adams - Developing progressive technology for low-end devices
  • Bertrand Bordage - Crowdfunding Wagtail
  • Matt Wescott - Let It Go
  • Tom Dyson - The Word Problem
  • Kevin Chung - How Google uses Wagtail CMS content API to optimize publisher workflow
  • Daniele Procida - Dockerised Wagtail hosting and reusable applications on Divio Cloud


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.
