This is a repost from Genuine's blog. Genuine is hosting the Drupal Global Sprint 2015-New England tomorrow from 10am - 5pm.

Tomorrow, more than 40 Drupal Contributors will come to Genuine to identify and work on issues for Drupal core at the Drupal Global Sprint 2015-New England event. This is the second consecutive year that we're participating in a global effort to help maintain and improve Drupal.

The Drupal Global Sprint 2015-New England is one of 50 sprints taking place around the world as part of the Drupal Global Sprint weekend.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Drupal Contributors of all levels of expertise will either work as a group or individually. Each group will have a session leader who understands the issue and can help group members throughout the Sprint. There will also be mentors that can assist individuals who may have questions.

And for first time Sprinters: you can get a head start by making an account on Drupal.org and taking a look at the Drupal Ladder. Don't forget to bring your laptop and charger! OwnSourcing will be available to help people get their environments set up and answer any other questions.

The Drupal Global Sprint 2015-New England takes place tomorrow, January 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Genuine (500 Harrison Ave. 5R Boston, MA). Please RSVP to reserve your space! Drupal Global Sprint 2015-New England is co-sponsored with Acquia and OwnSourcing.
