Don’t miss the Sunday contribution sprint!
What’s a contribution sprint?
A contribution or code sprint is when people get together to work on one particular goal. In this case, we’re working on various Drupal issues.
I’ve never done a contribution sprint before. I don’t know what to do.
Not a coder? That’s perfectly fine! There will be mentors available for those who need a little help to get started.
Not everyone who works on open source projects is a developer. Smaller tasks help the less experienced gain confidence and experience, which, in turn, leads to more contributions. Code is very important, but so are all the other parts.
For FLDC, we will concentrate on Drupal 8 issue triage. Basically, we’ll look at all the Drupal 8 issues, and make sure we understand them. Then we’ll make sure the issues are still relevant and that they’re categorized properly.
What if I want to work on something else?
That’s cool. There's plenty of contributed projects and themes that have issues in their queues.
There will also be breakout groups to focus on things like Accessibility, Coding Standards, and Documentation.
This sounds pretty boring…
Trust us, it’s a lot more fun when you get into it. It’s an excellent opportunity to meet other contributors, help collaborate and brainstorm, and move the Drupal project forward.
Honestly, it's pretty good time.
What if I get hungry?
We will make sure you stay fed and hydrated... probably some pizza and some more healthy options. We got you covered!
