Let's Sprint!

kattekrab's picture

Let's coordinate Drupal sprints to align with Drupal Dev Days in Szeged at the end of the month? http://szeged2014.drupaldays.org/
24-30 March 2014

A few people have already been discussing this and there was definite enthusiasm for the idea at DrupalSouth.

so... what do we need?

Venues with good wifi and a willingness to do it.

There's a lot of stuff that needs doing for Drupal8, but there are also heaps of modules out there that could do with patch reviews, and documentation that needs some attention. In short, there's something for everyone to do to find a way to contribute to Drupal!

Who's in?


Can't make it

I'd love to attend a Melbourne based sprint that week, but unfortunately I can't make it - I'll be in Szeged. I'll be with you in spirit(s).

I am organising a code sprint here in WA either on the 29 or 30, haven't decided yet. At the moment we are trying to figure out how many people can make it so that we can decide on a venue but it will happen for sure! :-)

I've got a venue near the city that can hold about 10 ppl, and I can probably expand that to 25. Good wifi and pizza. Currently looking at 29-30, but we could also do Friday (28th) if people are interested.

Melbourne / Sydney / Perth & Brisbane?

Thanks Ryan!

I have already lined up the PreviousNext office in Ultimo for 11am-4pm Saturday 29th March. And Pam's agreed to make sure it's open and people can get in.

Melbourne location is firming up - Brian has arranged for us to use Pubworks - but we're also still waiting to hear if we can use a venue in the city itself. More on that later today or tomorrow.

Brisbane - are you planning something for the weekend before hand?

@JorgeC - how are you guys getting on with Perth venue and times?

Anyone else got stuff planned?

No worries - I can run a "getting started" session on the friday if people are interested. Run through the drupal Ladder material and/or do an install-fest for everyone's dev environment.

Sound interesting to anyone?

Hey @kattekrab, I have just locked in the venue, date and time. The code sprint will be held at Doghouse Media on Sat 29 8:00am-1:00pm AWST.

At the moment we are looking at 10 people here in Perth but I think we could fit a couple more if needed.
