So you have decided to attend the Drupal Global Sprint 2015 – New England and wonder what you can do ahead of time to get set up up for sprinting. The tools you will need depend on how you plan to contribute.
If you are plan to work on documentation, testing patches or writing issue summaries it would be helpful if you have the following:
Issues in the Drupal.org queues specifically require your talents and existing skills. Today at Design4Drupal we'll be sprinting on a broad range of topics. This sprint is a particularly good opportunity to dive in if you're new to community sprints. Folks from several local firms are on hand specifically to help new contributors get started. Look for me (kay_v) and Leslie (leslieg) from OwnSourcing, Chris (sceo) and Patrick (pcorbett) from RedFin, and a long list of volunteers and friendly faces.
We'll be sprinting 10-5 today. Come find us at the MIT Stata Center.
