Drupal 8 is just around the corner, but what about you're favourite modules, are they ready yet?
A lot of attention goes into ensure that Drupal is ready on time, but not nearly enough goes into ensuring Contrib gets the same attention. We'd like that to change.
Come along, pick a Drupal 7 module, and start the porting process.
Who it's for
Experience with code is a must as the goal is to get stuck into coding all day; Module developers, advanced site builders, etc.
What to expect
We'll kick things off with a brief introduction, and then we'll help match people with projects that are right for their skill levels and areas of interest.
What to bring
An interest in Drupal contribution
A laptop with a Drupal 8 development environment
