Drupal Social Initiative

Working group to harmonise Social Networking functionality in Drupal

This group is specifically for organising, planning and working on Drupal projects being fostered by developers/architects interested in harmonising Social Networking functionality in Drupal. This group is also the focal point for organising BoFs, sprints and camps.

See the code at Social API and the issues for Social API.

Follow Drupal Social Initiative page on Google+ so that it's easy to invite you to our regular Hangouts.

We have a Drupal Social Initiative Google Group.

We have a Drupal Social Initiative Trello space.

This project is funded by Google Summer of Code. Learn more about Drupal's GSoC initiative by joining https://groups.drupal.org/google-summer-code or learn about all 11 of our selected projects in 2016.

Make a request so we can add you to Drupal Social Initiative on GitHub so we can code together. And see issues at Issues for Drupal Social Initiative on GitHub

Make a request so we can add you to the Drupal Social Initiative Google Drive so that we can collaboratively create documents and diagrams.

For chat use https://join.skype.com/ah3MJ8jQVHWF or we can use irc://irc.freenode.net/#kendraio. But Skype is monitored more frequently.

Like the Drupal Social Initiative page on Facebook for some reason that we can't quite remember.

Please no job posts here. Use Drupal Jobs. Thanks.
