Yes we can!
Seattle will be participating in the Global Drupal Sprint Day on 30 Jan! Details are in flux but here are the basics:
Time: 10am - 5pm (with a likely post-event happy hour/dinner nearby)
Location: Forum One offices in Seattle (building access details below)
Who: Anyone interested in helping out Drupal 8! This event is for never-done-this-before to experienced core developers and everyone in between.
Never posted a patch to Drupal.org? No problem, we will have mentors available to help you get setup and walk you though the process. Not a coder? Great! We need people to help with documentation, testing, issue queue cleanup, and myriad other tasks.
The maintainers of the Example and Better Exposed Filters module will be on-hand to review and commit patches to those projects as well as provide help on how to contribute to those and other projects.
Accessing the building
Forum One has generously donated their office space (and snacks!) for our sprint. Because this takes place outside of standard office hours, all entrants must use a card-key to get the elevators up to the 20th floor. There will be someone in the lobby from 9:55am - 10:15am for the morning rush. If you arrive after that, call Andrew Morton (808-443-9176) and we will have someone come down to the lobby to fetch you.
