Wagtail Space Arnhem

Talk, Listen, Sprint and Fly. 13 – 15 March 2019. Read more

Wagtail Space Arnhem will take place from 13 until 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 Thursday evening.

All Wagtail enthusiasts 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 would like to give a (lightning) talk let us know.

So far, the following people have offered to speak:

  • Tom Dyson (Torchbox) – To Be Considered
  • Chris Adams (Product Science) – Building a Planet Friendly Web with Wagtail
  • Thibaud Colas – Draftail extensions: doing more with rich text
  • Tony Yates (Vix Digital) – To Be Considered
  • To Be Considered (UWKM) – Highbiza Wagtail and Oscar
  • Daniele Procida (Divio) – Fly, Wagtail, fly!


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 the code sprint document.


Sprint: 13th and 14th from 08:30 until 18:00. Friday 15th from 08:30 until 12:00
Talks: Friday 15th from 13:00 until 17:00
