Any chance these could be streamed or recorded for those who can’t attend? Or is a sprint too chaotic to capture effectively?

It's usually pretty hard unfortunately :/

We can choose any topic from the sub-tasks listed on the overarching Onboarding Goal task. I will be adding some more sub-tasks there in the following days (like improving documentation, gathering feedback etc). Feel free to leave a comment there if you came up with anything that needs to be tackled and is not mentioned already.

At the moment I propose the Making settting up a development environment quick and easy task, as it seems the most discussed so far.

I've recently moved to Athens/Greece and I can try to arrange this here if it suits most. As is, I'm available from now till June 15th, the whole of July and any time after September 3rd. A reminder that we have Akademy in August. =)

Would it make sense to have this sprint as part of the BoFs and Workshops week at Akademy? Or maybe we can have a smaller session as a prep-event for the actual sprint.

We should definitely do something during Akademy but I don't think it should and can replace the sprint.

FWIW I may be interested in attending, i didn't add myself to the list above because I would not want to be a "voter" on the place/date but i would be interested in being notified when the place/date is chosen to see if i can join :)
