Location: Genuine, 500 Harrison St. 5R, Boston, MA

Non-restricted parking is available on Randolph Street and parts of Harrison Avenue. This building is also conveniently a 6-10 minute walk from the Broadway Red line T stop or you can hop on the number 9 or 11 bus from Broadway T and get off in one stop at the Harrison Ave. stop.

Who it's for

Anyone with Drupal site building experience can contribute to Drupal. We'll have tasks suitable for programmers and non-programmers alike.

Why come

You've been telling yourself for months that you should start contributing to Drupal. This sprint is your chance to get started with in-person training and mentoring from friendly, experienced contributors. It's also a great way to start becoming familiar with Drupal 8.

If you are already a contributor, come meet other contributors, hang out in person, and work on porting modules to Drupal 8 or on other tasks in the Drupal 8 queue.

How to prepare

Take a look at the helpful resources section on the D8 Sprint website

What you will need

  • Enthusiasm and a desire to meet others in the Drupal community
