The WeBWorK project is gearing up for a very busy summer. It looks like close to 100 people (and unofficially many more of course) are taking part in one of several WeBWorK activities.
The MAA PREP workshop on Problem Authoring will be late May through June. This online course has been wildly popular and the enrollment cap extended due to tremendous demand. Forty two students will be taking part in this online course led by Gavin "Gateway" LaRose, Paul "PG" Pearson, Davide "Yoda" Cervone and myself (with no nickname since this is my blog post).
The code camp WeBWorK::Ann Arbor will be held the first week in June with over twenty participants. The results of this meeting will show up in future releases although some of the back-end items may not be so apparent.
John Jones and Jeff Holt have a project for cleaning up the Open Problem Library. This will involve a number of folks in June.
A second code Camp WeBWorK::Vancouver is still in the planning stage but will take place the last week in June and will be a good option for WeBWorK developers on the west coast. Interested folks are encouraged to contact organizer Djun Kim at UBC.
The MAA PREP workshop on Model Courses will be in early June. This course will be held at the MAA Headquarters in Washington DC and will be a great opportunity to both develop course creation skills and to network with others in various WeBWorK leadership roles. Enrollment is nearing a full complement of 20 participants with advance registration still in effect till May 20.
Any WeBWorK users who plan to attend Mathfest are encouraged to help out with the exhibit hall booth. Plans are also in the works for a social gathering. Please contact me if you are interested in either.
