Contribution sprints, code sprints, sprint room, sprint day.
If you’ve attended a Drupal camp or been to DrupalCon, you’ve probably heard one of these words before. A sprint is when awesome people who know about Drupal get together to work on improving it. These get-togethers are really important for the growth of the Drupal project and they also give you a chance to get involved. and everyone is welcome!
Here’s some stuff we’ll cover in this panel discussion:
- what are sprints and why should you care?
- contribution sprints, code sprints
- what if I’m new to Drupal and/or sprinting?
- why companies should focus more on sprints
- stories from the sprint room
Whether you’ve been curious and haven’t been to one yet or the sprint room is your favorite place at Drupal events - come to this session and hear us talk about why we think sprinting is so important and what we get out of it.
If you’ve been thinking about sprints or wondering how you can contribute back to Drupal - this is the session for you!
We'll also leave time at the end for QA.
