For the first time, Drupal Providence will be participating in the Drupal Global Contribution Weekend. This is a weekend where Drupalists gather for one weekend around the world solving issues in the Drupal issue queue.
Everyone is welcome; You do not need to be a developer to participate, non-technical folks can work on improving documentation on Drupal.org. If you have built a site in Drupal, you can contribute. We will split into groups and work on Drupal core issues. Bring your laptop! For new folks: you can get a head start also by making an account on Drupal.org, getting some contribution tools, and developers can install git before coming and git clone Drupal 8 core.
Instructions for cloning Drupal 8 core with git: https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/git-instructions
We will be communicating with the Drupal community over the Drupal slack channel. Make sure to create an account following the instructions here: https://www.drupal.org/slack
Lunch will be provided for all who participate by Talking Drupal (http://talkingdrupal.com).
