Saturday, March 27, 10AM to 2PM
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 Drupal Contributions, get there first thing in the morning at 10am for a First Time Contribution 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.
First Time Contribution Workshops
With DrupalCon only weeks away, MidCamp's Contribution Day is the perfect time to start honing your contribution skills. 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. The workshops are free and no registration is required.

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.
"Feeds Migrate for Migrate is what Views module is for SQL queries"
- April Sides, @weekbeforenext
Join us for if you are a site builder or developer - we will test existing features of the dev version of the module and work on development issues.

Drupal Recipes is a user group driven initiative to contribute to Drupal Community Documentation for site owners, managers and builders. Recipes can help everyone learn because Drupal is still complex and hard to understand. Our intent is not to duplicate, but rather enhance and collect the "best of" examples and keep them updated. As recipes are verified and deemed complete, we plan to add them to the documentation at Drupal.org.
