What is a sprint?
A sprint is a group of individuals gathering together to contribute to a specific cause. In this case, as contributors to the Drupal community, we’re inviting individuals to work on all things open source for Drupal. This not only includes coding for modules but also improving user experience and marketing materials, and enriching the content for individual projects.
Where and when?
12th May 9am-4pm
5th Floor, 31 Dale Street, Manchester, M1 1EY
Google Maps Directions - https://goo.gl/maps/az3RDRGHYTQ2
The venue is at the CTI Office meaning we will have free wifi, coffee, and plenty of space available. Pizza will also be provided by one of the organisers.
The building is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible but a lift is available from the ground floor up a few steps.
Who can go?
Everyone involved with Drupal! Sprinting is not limited to just writing code. Content writers, marketing, documentation, illustration, user experience, designers, photographers and even recipe writers (yes really!); all types of contributions are truly welcome. We will help you find meaningful ways to start or continue your contribution no matter your skill set.
All ability levels are welcome at this sprint. Mentors will be available to help beginners take their first steps into contributing to Drupal. So please come along no matter your experience level as there is no better way to learn, than to do!
After the sprint there will also be the opportunity to go for a drink to socialise and get to know your new friends away from a computer screen.
Who’s already going?
A few familiar faces will be at the sprint, including Phil Norton, Rakesh James, Vijay Chandran Mani and Rachel Lawson. But please come along even if you haven’t met anyone before. This event is all about building the North West Drupal community.
More details for the big day
If you’re new to Drupal we’ll have mentors available to help you get set up on the day. All you need to bring along is a laptop and charger and yourself!
