A sprint is a get-together for focused work on a project. Sprints are an important part of Drupal's growth, and are also a great opportunity to get involved, because others are on hand to help you contribute. There are many days for sprinting scheduled, so come and collaborate in person with other Drupal community members!
Sunday March 20 Sprint
The sprint will start at 10 am in College of Medicine Research Building (COMRB) room 3175. This is the dedicated sprint day, and we are expecting you and lots of others, approximately 60 people.
Who should come?
Everyone who is interested in contributing to Drupal core or contributed projects. You don't need to be a developer to contribute; we need project managers, bug reporters, QA testers, people to help write documentation, etc... If you ARE a developer, but not sure where to get started, we have mentors to show you the ropes.
If you feel new and would love helping hands, the best day to start is the Sunday sprint day. This is the biggest sprint day with many people sprinting and different opportunities based on experience level. For a guided introduction to the tools and processes we use to collaborate, get there first thing in the morning at 10am for a contribution workshop. If you know the tools but still could use help picking issues and going through the process, we will have experienced contributor there to help newer contributors.
