The quick version: the Drupal Ladder is an initiative aimed at raising the number of drupal.org users who contribute to the Drupal core. We're doing two types of events to raise this percentage: learn sprints, where we work through lessons; and issue sprints, where we work on core Drupal issues.
Bring your laptop! This will be a working issue sprint, so you'll need a laptop to work on, and please arrive on time so we can get started quickly. Anyone with Drupal experience is welcome to attend this event: you don't need to be an experienced Drupal developer to get started, you just need to know how to use Drupal a bit.
Gordon Biersch is in the heart of the Rockville Town Square and easily accessible and walkable from the Rockville Metro station on the Red Line. Wifi is available and they may have power outlets if needed.
I’ve reserved the private dining room at Gordon Biersch starting at 6:30pm. They close at 11pm and the bar is open till 1am! Food and drinks can be ordered from the standard menu, so bring your appetite too!
