Other Sunday Sprints
Other sprints on Sunday for people experienced in their topic, but new to Drupal contribution:
First-Time Sprinter Workshop
If you're new to Drupal contribution, you can attend the FREE mentored First-Time Sprinter Workshop on Friday. The hands-on workshop will cover the basics of contribution essentials like the Drupal.org issue queues, IRC, git, and optionally setting up Drupal 8 on your laptop.
Mentored Core Sprint
If you already have all the tools, have used the issue queue, have a working Drupal 8 development environment on your laptop, would like to work with a mentor to contribute to Drupal core, and would like help finding an issue to work on, or if you're not quite sure where to start contributing: come to the mentored Mentored Core Sprint. This sprint will run all day, with workshop attendees joining this sprint in the afternoon.
Sprint mentors will help you find a task for a Drupal core issue and then help you work on it. You can create patches for bugs, add documentation to issues, test patches, and more!
