Thanks to the leadership of Allie Micka and R.J. Steinert, the Snowball initiative to provide tools for coordinating and funding Drupal initiatives is coming to the Boston area this long weekend for its first code sprint.
We will focus on building a working alpha so we have something real to share for feedback, to refine, and to build process, message, and governance around.
We'll be working on Friday November 11th, Saturday the 12th, and Sunday the 13th starting at 10am on Friday and no later than that on the weekend days in Somerville, Massachusetts.Read more

There are many great Drupal learning resources, groups, and tools but they can be somewhat disconnected and spread out. Our goal is to unify and bring these efforts together to provide a complimentary program and platform that serves all Drupal learning initiatives needs and efforts.
The Drupal Kata is a new project learning program that provides hands on training in a wide range of areas ranging from site planning, drafting proposals, project management, information architecture, development, design, infrastructure, to business and community. It does this by pairing apprentices with a mentor or mentors, thus gaining exposure to real-world scenarios and connections with the local and global community. The knowledge transfer allows apprentices to become proficient, contribute back to the community, and retain the skills for gainful employment in the field of their choice.
The evolutionary stages of the program seeks to follow through with the Drupal Dojo 2.0 vision by building off complimentary sites and collaborating with existing teams. A collaboration with the Open Media Project will provide a unique opportunity to craft a custom program to provide development help, training, and documentation and marketing on a regional level.
I wasn't at DC so I may have missed vital information...
Please could you clarify what the next stages for KDI are? Or give me an idea of when you'll know the next stages?
The reason is I want to tell Kendra Initiative members (over 2000) about Kendra Hub but I'm concerned that we'll have to resubmit it in a new format and hence any comments or votes we get will be lost.
What do you suggest I do? Are we sticking with the same process?
Cheers DanielRead more

I was checking out the KnightPulse site, and noticed the header links have all these strange letters at the end of the links for the style sheet calls. I am hoping someone in this group might have an idea of what is causing this, and if it is normal ?
I received the following invite via email today.Read more
When the Knight Foundation announced the Knight Drupal Initiative at DrupalCON Boston, we entered a partnership with the Drupal community.
Our goal was to establish an open, ongoing grant application process for the purpose of creating better open source web applications.
The last six months have been phenomenal. Too successful, in fact. We currently have six proposals under funding review, with over $600,000 (USD) in potential grants for Drupal projects.Read more
