Drupal Ladder

About

Our goal is to get 1% of active users on drupal.org to contribute to Drupal core by 2014 by organizing "learn sprints" and "issue sprints" at Drupal User Group meetups, camps and conferences.

drupalladder.org is a central place for people to find and contribute lessons and materials. drupalladder.org is built on the Drupal Ladder distro, which people can download and use on their personal computers to work through the Drupal Ladder lessons.

The Drupal Ladder distro and drupalladder.org are products of the Boston Initiative, an experiment aiming to figure out how to make it easier for people to learn about and contribute to Drupal.

Note that we do not accept job postings or non-Drupal Ladder events in this group. Any posts that go off-topic from the goals of this group will be removed.

Hi all,
Just a quick feedback to make our next Ladder even better. We organized the first Drupal Ladder in the Philippines on Saturday 23rd nov.

Sacramento Drupal Ladder Contribution Sprint

Start: 
2013-06-29 09:00 - 17:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Sprint

It's a Drupal Ladder core contribution day!

We'll be doing both an issue and learn sprint.

Not sure what the Drupal Ladder is? See this website: http://www.drupalladder.org

While we would like to focus on Drupal 8 core issues, including documentation, you are welcome to focus your work on other parts of the Drupal ecosystem such as distributions or contributed modules.

If you're new to Drupal contribution, this is the best way to learn!

I'll work on a lunch (pizza) sponsor. Perhaps we can socialize and get a bite to eat afterwards as well.

Where?

Multilanguage Drupal Ladder?

Last Saturday we celebrated the first Drupal Ladder meetup in the Sevilla local group, Spain. It was a total success with 15 sprinters that worked through the ladder, at the end of the day most worked on real patches for Drupal 8, and some of them are already RTBCed.

In our retrospective, we talked about the pros, cons and improvement chances for potential new DrupalLadder meetups, and one of the already known problems for non-English speakers arised: language can be a blocker. Some people proposed to have DrupalLadder lessons in Spanish and/or translate existing ones.
