Contribution day will be in the afternoon of Sunday, February 20 from 1:00 until 4:00pm ET.
What is 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.
What will we be working on?
We have several projects and initiatives to collaborate on. Including:
- Easy Out of the Box - Claro Theme
- Drupal 9's new theme, Olivero
- Project Browser
There will also be breakout groups to focus on things like Accessibility, Coding Standards, and Documentation.
Is this your first time contributing? Not a coder? That’s perfectly fine! There will be mentors available for those who need a little help to get started.
We will have a few tables dedicated to mentoring not only novices but novices to the issue queue. There will be help setting up the necessary tools, understanding which types of issues to work on, and even some live demos of the complete contribution process.
Schedule for mentoring TBA
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.
Be prepared to have a 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 a pretty good time.
