Post-Camp Contribution Day - Saturday, March 21 – 10 am to 4 pm (CDT)
A contribution day is a get-together for focused work on a project. Contribution days are an important part of Drupal's growth, and are also a great opportunity to get involved, because others are on hand to help you contribute. There is a dedicated contribution day on Saturday, so come and collaborate with other Drupal community members!
Who Should Come?
Everyone! Now that MidCamp has shifted to virtual, literally, EVERYONE can join. It is on the global stage.
If you are interested in contributing to Drupal core or contributed projects, this is your chance. You don't need to be a developer to contribute; we need project managers, bug reporters, QA testers, people to help write documentation, etc. If you are a developer, but not sure where to get started, we have mentors to show you the ropes.
If you feel new and would love helping hands, the best day to start is the Saturday contribution day. This is the biggest day for contributing with many people collaborating, and different opportunities based on experience level. For a guided introduction to the tools and processes we use to collaborate, get there first thing in the morning at 10am for a first time contributor workshop.
If you know the tools but still could use help picking issues and going through the process, we will have experienced contributors there to help newer folks.
Specific details below.
New to Drupal and Contribution Day? Join us in the training and learn all you need to get started. Once you learn the basics, the workshop will merge with the rest of the Contribution Day so you can apply your new skills. This training is free and no registration is required.

One goal this Contribution Day is to prepare Drupal 8 for Drupal 9. This includes removing deprecated code within Drupal itself and third-party dependencies. If you’re interested in helping plan the initiative or more information on what we’re planning to check out the #d9readiness channel in the Drupal slack.

The Rector project saves a lot of manual work by automating code upgrades from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9. The immediate goal is to create Rector rules for the 15 most popular deprecations. Those 15 rules will cover 50% of all Drupal deprecations! Issues are maintained on drupal.org at https://drupal.org/project/rector.

Feeds Migrate is a tool that helps import data into your import to Drupal 8/9 website. It provides a user interface for migrations, so users don’t have to set up the migrations with code. The goal is to provide a tool anyone can use, regardless of tech background, to import data into their site.
