"Come for the Software, Stay for the Community"

Dear All,

Are you a Drupal Developer, Themer, Designer, Tester, Documentation writer, Project Planner, or Drupal beginner? If so, come and join us in Drupal Code sprint.

"If you have a basic understanding of Drupal and coding in PHP, you’re ready to begin. If not, there are several equally awesome ways to contribute that don’t involve coding. You’ll also need to know a little about git, so make sure it’s installed on your system and the documentation should guide you on what you’ll need in order to submit a patch."

The "Drupal Drop In Sprints" are monthly sprint events that enable anyone working with Drupal to improve the quality of the software by participating and contributing back to the community. By participating you will also learn from your peers, and raise the skill levels of everyone who collaborates with you.
