Drupal Global Sprint Weekend Report!!

Initially I was bit unhappy with the turn out. Especially many of the regular's who RSVP'ed and whom I was counting on din't appear. But then we had an interesting day and we were able to do good amount of work.

In total 8 people attended the event. Among which 2 were experienced, 2 were fairly new to D8 and 4 were beginners/site-builders. We got started with introduction to and how it helps in getting started with core contributions. We spoke a bit about core mentoring hours which happens twice every week.

For the site-builders we thought it would be good to try our hands on change records which are also blockers for the D8 release. We have utilized this area very well and thanks to Mrs.Jaya, she dived right into it and worked on 4 change records.
For the developers who were new to D8 and contributions I guided them on how they can get started with twig conversions and routing conversions(Convert page callbacks to controllers) with little difficulty. Suneel, Sreedhar and Karthik attempted to understand these and work on them. Karthik reported a bug and added a patch as well.
Gokul continued to work on a patch which he had picked up earlier during mentoring hours.
Avinash and Victor were keenly observing how the whole contribution process works in Drupal.
Along with guiding people and helping around, I was able to work on a patch. After which Me and Victor have done some manual testing and identified some missing use cases. Finally we added a patch which covers all the use cases.

Lunch and logistics were sponsored by Azrisolutions, Bangalore.

It was a wonderful experience and thank you everyone for attending and working hard to contribute to Drupal. Hope to see more participants going forward.
