Join the Drupal Community in this worldwide event focusing on Drupal 9 stability and adoption across contributed projects. Over 1600 projects are already Drupal 9 compatible a month before Drupal 9's release which is unprecedented. However, there are still thousands that only need very small changes and a release made.

The first Drupal 9 Porting Day was on April 28, 2020, led by Gábor Hojtsy, Lee Rowlands, Vladimir Roudakov, QED42, Srijan, Adam Bergstein and Mike Lutz. Altogether 126 issues were worked on that resulted in 89 newly Drupal 9 compatible releases on that day and the following two days. It was not only successful but we had a lot of fun too. So we are of course here to do another one this month!


Drupal 9 Porting Weekend is on May 22-23, 2020. Friday, May 22 would have been contribution day at DrupalCon Minneapolis. We picked the dates in honour of the cancelled event.

Mentors / leaders needed worldwide

The following great people signed up so far to lead in their own timezones:

Friday leaders:

Saturday leaders:

We are looking for more leaders at various time zones to help mentor people working in that timezone. Spreading the effort to more people would help everyone's questions be answered. Contact Gábor Hojtsy if you are interested to be a mentor / leader in your timezone and we'll add you here. We are looking to cover as many time zones as possible.
