Drupal Sprint in Bellingham, WA, USA is part of Drupal Global Sprint Weekend 2016.
We will be holding sprints on both Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm at the Western Downtown Center within the Herald Building (1155 North State St.).
Drupal 8 will be the focus of both days as we help the community move towards further improvements in Drupal 8.
If you haven't yet used Drupal 8 this is a great opportunity to be exposed to the new system. If you have never been to a sprint, this blog post has a great overview of what to expect. https://www.acquia.com/blog/helpful-guide-your-first-drupal-sprint
Last year we had 10-15 people throughout the day. We hope to see you there.
Steps to sprint!
- Create a Drupal.org account

Finding and applying patches
Once an interesting patch has been found, the process to apply the patch in order to test it is as follows:
Ensure your copy of Drupal is updated to the most recent version. This can be done at any time by executing the following command inside the Drupal root directory:
Download a copy of the most recent version of the patch (often patches are revised further down the issue page) by issuing the command:
OR, if you're on a system with curl rather than wget:
curl -O http://drupal.org/files/issues/patch-name.patch
Apply the patch by issuing the following:
git apply [patchname].patch
Finally, test the patch out rigorously and submit feedback to the issue tracker, in order to help identify problems and improve the functionality of Drupal.
