Drupaldelphia: Get Involved with Core Sprint

Core Sprint
Tim Plunkett

After a full day of sessions and learning about Drupal, Saturday June 23rd from 10 am to 5 pm will be the third Get Involved with Core Sprint. (Previous sprints were held at DrupalCon Denver and DrupalCamp Twin Cities). The sprint will be hosted at Zivtech (the same location as the previous night's after-party). If you want to contribute to Drupal core but aren't sure where to start, this is your chance to get in-person training and mentoring from friendly, experienced core contributors. If you've already started to work on core, this is your chance to meet other contributors, hang out in person, and work on manageable tasks in the Drupal core queue. The goal is to help you help with core.

Time & Location:

We'll start sprinting at 10 am (feel free to show up anytime after 9:30) and continue until 5 pm. Zivtech The Philadelphia Building 1315 Walnut St, Suite 1500 Philadelphia PA 19107 Map: http://goo.gl/maps/HSBs

What to expect

We'll kick things off at 10am with an introduction and some training, and then start sprinting on core issues. Feel free to either drop by and work on just a couple tasks, or to stay and sprint with us all day! We will help match people with issues that are right for their skill levels and areas of interest.

What to bring

  1. An interest in Drupal contribution
  2. A laptop


You can save time at the sprint by configuring your development environment in advance with the following:

  1. A local web server. We suggest the Acquia Dev Desktop for an easy point-and-click installer on Mac and Windows. Alternately, see the following videos for help setting up your development environment:

If you run into any problems trying to install anything above, don't worry! We will help you configure your environment during the sprint.

Already a battle-hardened contributor?

There's plenty you can do to help! We could use assistance from people that already know the ropes. Have Drupal 8 running? Know how to apply a patch with Git? Great! You're already one step ahead of three other people. If you want to help we would love your assistance and can pair you up with others that need help learning how to apply a patch, locating documentation, or doing their first patch review. Just let us know what you're interested in doing.
