All day Sprint for Drupal

Sunday March 10 is it. Location reserved: Art of Natural Healing on Lake St in river forest. all day. We have some remaining funds from the Community Initiative that can help with reservation and comm-press is helping with lunch!

This is part of the Drupal Sprint Weekend

Remember your laptop! Please bring an extra power strip and some snacks.
First-timers welcome

If you are bringing littles that are too young to contribute, bring snacks, quiet toys, ipod like devices to keep them amused.

Everyone is welcome, people new to drupal or experienced devs. We will split into pairs and work on Drupal core issues. Bring your laptop. If possible, install git before coming and git clone Drupal 8 core. If not possible, I'll have it on a thumb drive; no worries. For new folks: you can get a head start also by making an account on and taking a look at the Drupal Ladder

    12 people. Quite an array of experience (first time contributors to Drupal 8 initiative lead) and ages (10-60ish). Even the newer people were helping the really new with contributing. Even the experienced (me) were getting mentored! An awesome showing! Lunch from comm-press was much appreciated.

    I was hoping to make it, but unless I make major progress over the next day or two, I will be working on taxes on Sunday. Sorry

      Bob, getting there for half the day would be fine. :) I wish you luck with your taxes!

      Ooof, taxes! I still haven't had the courage to dig into mine. But I hope to see you there, Bob!

    Hey Cathy - I can't get there until later (probably around 12:30), and I will need to leave around 5:00pm. Is this ok?

    I'll be coming down from Milwaukee. Anyone know a cheap place to crash if I were to come to the Chicago sprint on Saturday and stay over night? I don't know Chicago or the surrounding areas very well...

    I'm in Milwaukee and thinking about comming. Is anyone else thinking from Wisconsin thinking of coming? Maybe we could carpool or something? Let me know!

      David, maybe tweet out the question, and lets see if we can find someone to carpool with, maybe also post in the Milwaukee group. Let me know if you do, and I'll see if I can get some people to look at the tweet/post.
