The biggest Drupal core sprint and developer camp is coming up in March!

Drupal Developer Days 2014 is coming up quick in Szeged, Hungary from March 24th (Mon) to the 30th (Sun) 2014. Szeged, Hungary may sound like it is the middle of nowhere but what do you need to get together with a bunch of Drupal developer friends and learn about and advance the platform together? As those who have been to DrupalCon Europe 2008 in the same city know, Szeged is the ideal place for just that. Check out our interviews about those experiences.

Here are some quick facts about Drupal Dev Days 2014:

  • A whole week of sprints with two core committers (Alex Pott and Nathaniel Catchpole) as well as the testbot system maintainer (Jeremy Thorson) on location! Could we help more to make progress? Oh, most top European Drupal developers are already signed up to come as well!
  • Three days of sessions and workshops (50 topics providing 56 hours of content). Get lots of readily applicable know-how including website monitoring, e-commerce, practical scrum, Vagrant, product development in real life, Heisencache, IDE tricks and so on. Look into how Drupal is made, see the life of a core maintainer, get gamification tips or discuss a new type of money: Druplicoins!
  • Want to work on upgrading your modules to Drupal 8 but don't know how? No problem! Additionally to learning about all the new Drupal 8 subsystems, there is a bring-your-own-module workshop as well, where mentors will help you upgrade your module!
  • Want to get into Drupal development? Attend the community tools workshop and learn all the tools we use to communicate and work on solutions and learn and enjoy how the Drupal mentoring program works.

A truly fantastic opportunity isn't it? Last but not least its also very cheap. The ticket is only 30 Euros for the whole week! If you want to get to know Drupal 8 or even help make it happen, this is the place to be in March. Note that some cheap hotel deals expire this week. Don't miss out!

Want to help design the next iteration of Drupal's Automated Testing infrastructure?

On October 18th, 2007, Chad Phillips (hummonk) made an initial commit to the ‘Project Issue File Test’ module, with the description “initial commit of an integrated file testing platform for project issue module”. This kicked off the pursuit of automated testing integration between drupal.org and qa.d.o (then referred to as testing.drupal.org). In 2009, Jimmy Berry (boombatower) performed a significant overhaul and redesign of the system with the release of PIFT/PIFR 2.0, introducing a number of structural and architectural changes and improvements.

Join us for a week of Drupal 8 in March!

Drupal Developer Days 2014 is coming up quick in Szeged, Hungary from March 24th (Mon) to the 30th (Sun) 2014. Szeged, Hungary may sound like it is the middle of nowhere but what do you need to get together with a bunch of Drupal developer friends and learn about and advance the platform together? As those who have been to DrupalCon Europe 2008 in the same city know, Szeged is the ideal place for just that. Check out our interviews about those experiences.

This is not only the event to come to if you want to learn about Drupal 8 but also to get involved with Drupal (core) development. If you are not a contributor yet we plan to have plenty opportunities to help get you on board. If you know what you want to work on, we'd love to get out of your way and provide you with all the pieces needed for you to work on outstanding Drupal 8 core issues. We expect hundreds of developers to attend this event, and core development involvement is not at all a requirement. However, if you are eager to help out, this is a great chance! This is the biggest continuous sprint of the year to help get Drupal 8 closer to release!

If you are just considering taking a deeper look at Drupal 8, this is the ideal event for you with hands-on workshops as well as key Drupal developers on location to work with to fix issues that bug you.

Our tickets start at just 30 EUR and we also offer scholarships! We now accept presentation and workshop submissions as well as code sprint suggestions and signups! Let's explore and advance Drupal 8 together!

Ps. We are looking for sponsors to help put on the event and sponsor key Drupal core developers to attend! This is a great time to show your company's commitment to Drupal 8.

Qa.drupal.org Testing Metrics & Report

Recently, I was asked to pull together some metrics which would help illustrate the current health of the automated testing infrastructure, and provide a baseline by which we could monitor it over time ... and I thought I'd share some of those findings here.

The first graph shows how testbot utilization has grown over time, from a steady-state count of around 1000 tests per month in the first half of 2011, doubling to 2000 tests per month in January 2012, and reaching a peak of over 6400 requests in June of 2013.
