Event type: 

We're meeting at the same location both Saturday and Sunday this year!

Drupal 8 is a year old now, so that means it's done right? No, we need your help! Come learn how to contribute to Drupal and be a part of a great Austin and global Drupal community.

Are you new to Drupal? Maybe you know Drupal 7, but don't know Drupal 8. Don't let that stop you! We'd love to have you if you're new and/or this is your first time contributing. Any contribution is a good contribution!

Everyone is welcome!

If you have built a site in Drupal, you can contribute. Bring your laptop. The focus of the sprint is Drupal 8 core and contrib issues, but please come and work on what you want.

For new folks: there will be mentors available if you need help or this is your first time contributing. We will split into groups and work on Drupal core and/or contrib issues. You can get a head start also by making an account on Drupal.org, getting some contribution tools (we recommend Acquia Dev Desktop), and developers can install git before coming and git clone Drupal 8 core.

Please help sponsor: our goal is to keep the sprinters fed and watered with healthy snacks, which we're budgeting at $400. Give what you can or coordinate with us to provide the snacks directly.
