To participate

  • use "Drupal Sprint Weekend 2015" in the description of your sprint meetup, sprint camp session, mini-sprint, wind-sprint, or all-day sprint, like: "Drupal All-day Sprint in Anywhere Town, IL, USA is part of Drupal Sprint Weekend 2015."
  • add a link to your sprint on this page. The link can be to a website, meetup, event on groups.drupal.org, blog post or whatever is appropriate for your event.
  • link back to this listing of local sprints
  • add an "event" of type "sprint" on groups.drupal.org in a group for your area, to put your sprint on drupical.com and get exposure to people in your area
  • use the hash tag #SprintWeekend on twitter
  • use the tag "SprintWeekend2015" on d.o issues (no # in this tag name!)

Suggested announcement

A blurb to add to your session/event description (edit to fit your event):

Everyone is welcome; if you have built a site in Drupal, you can contribute. We will split into groups and work on Drupal core issues. Bring your laptop. For new folks: you can get a head start also by making an account on Drupal.org, getting some contribution tools, and developers can install git before coming and git clone Drupal 8 core.

For new sprinters

If anyone at a sprint is not yet granted the Trusted role, the best thing to do is file an issue like https://www.drupal.org/node/add/project-issue/webmasters?component=User%... and mention you are in a sprint. You can also put your issue link into IRC to help speed up the process.
