Getting involved with core

Welcome sprint participants! Create an account on http://core.drupalofficehours.org and see the sprint instructions.

The BADCamp Get Involved with Core sprint will be held Sunday, November 4, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m in the Pauley Ballroom. (Similar sprints have been held at DrupalCon Denver, DrupalCon Munich, and many local and regional Drupal events).

Why come

If you're like most Drupal developers, you've been telling yourself for months that you should start contributing to Drupal core. This sprint is your chance to get started with in-person training and mentoring from friendly, experienced core contributors. If you've already started to work on core, come 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.

Who it's for

Anyone with Drupal site building experience can contribute to Drupal core. We'll have tasks suitable for programmers and non-programmers alike.

What to expect

We'll kick things off with a brief introduction, and then we'll help match people with issues that are right for their skill levels and areas of interest. Note that free training will be provided earlier in the week to help new contributors set up a development environment and learn about the contribution process.

What to bring

  1. An interest in Drupal contribution
  2. A laptop with a Drupal 8 development environment

How to get set up

Don't have your development environment yet? No problem! Come to the free contribution training on either Thursday, November 1 or Friday, November 2 (both days of training are the same).

You're also encouraged to set up your development environment on your own if you prefer. Here's what you'll need:

  1. A local web server. Some options:
  2. Git (install and configure).
  3. A code-friendly text editor. (Sublime Text 2 is a free, cross-platform text editor.)
