Drupal Core and Contrib Sprints

Help unblock the release of Drupal 8

Throughout the camp, top Drupal 8 contributor xjm will be leading work on critical issues that block the Drupal 8 release. There will be a priority list of critical issues to target (possibly with Post-Its, stickers, and/or glitter). If you already have some background in Drupal 8 or core contribution, and especially if you can dedicate some time over the course of several days to move an issue forward, join the Drupal 8 critical burndown to help get Drupal 8 done.

Dedicated Sprint Day at The Nerdery:

Something for everyone

Whether you're a site builder, designer, programmer, themer, technical writer, or usability specialist, even if you don't have any Drupal experience at all, this is your chance to get involved and contribute back to the Drupal community.

On Sunday - Cathy Theys (YesCT) and numerous other volunteers will be leading a special Get Inolved with Core sprint. Andrea and Cathy are well known for their ability to break down core contribution into something anyone can understand. Whether you're a brand new contributor or an experienced veteran, we'll do our best to help you to help make Drupal better.

Mentors needed!

Already familiar with setting up a development environment or with the core contribution process? Want to help other contributors? We need lots of mentors to work with our first-time contributors. This is a great opportunity to get to know others in the community.


The Nerdery has graciously offered to host this year’s DrupalCamp sprints from 9:30 AM to 5 PM on Sunday, August 10. Sprints officially begin at 10 AM. Sprinters are welcome to come and go as they please.

Please note: that The Nerdery is NOT within walking distance of the University of St. Thomas (it's a 20 minute drive). Ask around at DrupalCamp to hitch a ride. Organizers will try to facilitate transportation. The Nerdery has not yet perfected teleporting but stay tuned.
