Don’t miss the Sunday contribution day!
What’s a contribution day?
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 attended a contribution day 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.
We will also have mini workshops through out the day for first time contributors. There will be help setting up the neccessary tools, understanding which types of issues to work on, and even some live demos of the complete contribution process (from finding an issue, fixing the problem, making a patch, uploading a patch, and reviewing the patch for commit).
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.
What will we be working on?
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.
There will also be breakout groups to focus on things like Accessibility, Coding Standards, and Documentation.
Be prepared to have a really good time…
Trust us, it’s a lot of 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!
