Last night, more than 30 people participated in the Boston Initiative between 6:30 and 7:30 at our monthly meetup. We had 8 breakout groups, 9 group leaders, and 23 group participants (not including late arrivals). And our initiative contributed to 7 issues in the Drupal core issue queue.
Breakout groups included:
Local environment setup
Reproducing and confirming bugs
Here's a link to the working draft of the Drupal Ladder (with links to various How To documents) I presented last night.
I solicited feedback from as many people as I could at the Muddy last night so we can be methodical about building on things that worked and improving things that could go better. If you've got suggestions about how we can improve, or you want to get involved in preparing Boston Initiative materials or activities for the next meetup, please contact me.
