Community Contributions and Sprints

What are Contributions and Sprints?

Community Contributions and sprints are a get-together for focused work on a project. Contributions 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 Contribution topics scheduled for Drupal Dev Days, so come and collaborate in person with hundreds of other Drupal community members!

Who should come?

Everyone! 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.

Do I need to register for Drupal Dev Days to attend Community Contributions?

No! Community Contributions are the core of Drupal Dev Days, but we strongly recommend adding your name and/or your sprint to the contributions planning document. Contribution Rooms are open starting Monday. Catering will only be served during session days (Tue-Fri), however there is a nice bar with coffee and food inside the building.

What if I'm new to Drupal and/or Contributions?

Community Contributions are not only for Drupal coders! There are plenty of tasks for people who'd like to contribute, such as testing, working on design and UX, and documentation.

Don't be shy to chime in! Mentors and Topic leaders will be there to help you.

I worked on Drupal before, which Contributions are for me?

If you have experience with Drupal issues and maybe already know a team/topic, any of the Drupal Dev Days sprint days may be for you, but of course if you have questions, there are always plenty of friendly people to help you.
