  • A provisional TypeScript rewrite of the JavaScript UIUI User interface

We also have a number of areas to cover which are less technically focused:

No setup ahead of the event or prior knowledge is needed to get involved, but for more technical work we would recommend bringing a laptop with Docker, npm and Composer installed.
