A translation sprint in February followed by two consecutive weeks of TikiFests and industry conferences in March present the perfect opportunity to learn more about Tiki and become more involved with the Tiki Community.
First up is TikiFest Québec from February 12-14. This event, the seventh to be held in Québec will focus on improving the French translations in Tiki. See http://tiki.org/TikiFestQuébec7 for details.
The Spring Tiki Tour then continues with TikiFest ConFoo in Montréal, Canada, March 4-8. Work is expected to focus primarily on continued integration with BigBlueButton. See http://tiki.org/TikiFestConfoo2011 for details.
ConFoo.ca immediately follows from March 9-11, also in Montréal. This is the second edition of the ))ConFoo(( conference and includes experts in Java, .Net, PHP, Python and Ruby will present solutions for developers and project managers. Tiki Community member Marc Laporte will be speaking about Tiki Suite: Tiki’s integration with other open source applications, such as BigBlueButton, Kaltura, Clipperz, and many others.
The tour then heads across the border to participate in Recent Changes Camp 2011 in Boston, Massachusetts. This Open Space Technology format unconference focuses on wikis and collaborative practices and runs March 11-13. Several key Tiki Community members plan to attend the event.
TikiFest Boston, March 14-18, marks the end of this Spring tour. This will be the last major gathering before the release of Tiki 7 (planned for April 2011). Work will primarily entail release preparations, but the TikiFesters will also look at long-term work including the move to Smarty 3 and major rework and improvements to Tiki Trackers. See http://tiki.org/TikiFestBoston7 for details.

- Brazil: June 21-27
- Strasbourg, France: July 6-9
- Portland, Oregon, USA: July 23-24
- Haifa, Israel: August 2-3
