Contribution

Let's come together to collaborate and contribute to the future of Drupal! Contribution Events are an integral part of the DrupalCon Barcelona 2024 experience, happening throughout the event and leading up to a Contribution Day on Friday. It's a chance to join forces with like-minded individuals, share your skills, and work towards common goals.

Whether you're passionate about organizing events, designing user interfaces, translating text, writing documentation, reviewing contributions, finding bugs, or writing code, there's a place for you to make an impact. Regardless of your expertise or level of experience, everyone is welcome to participate.

Who should come?

Everyone is welcome to join. We're in need of a diverse array of talents: project managers, bug reporters, designers, QA testers, individuals to contribute to documentation, and both front-end and back-end developers. If you are not sure where to begin, do not worry. We have dedicated mentors ready to guide you along the way.

We warmly welcome participants of all experience levels, backgrounds, genders, races, sexual identities, religions, ages, and abilities. In particular, we embrace community members from marginalized groups. Diversity enriches our community, and it's through inclusion that we can craft the finest Drupal experience for all. Join us, and let's shape the future of Drupal together!

 

Why contribute?

Contribution is vital to Drupal's growth, offering valuable opportunities to engage in the development of Drupal itself. At DrupalCon, contributions provide an ideal entry point, offering training and mentorship from experienced contributors.

For those already immersed in contributions, DrupalCon is a chance to connect with fellow contributors, engage in collaborative work, and tackle manageable tasks within the Drupal issue queue. With hundreds of other Drupal community members, there are numerous opportunities to contribute and collaborate.

 

What to bring?

  1. Your enthusiasm for Drupal contribution.
  2. Feel free to bring your laptop if you wish, although not all contribution methods require one. We encourage pairing up for collaborative efforts!

 

I will need a development environment, how do I set that up?

You are welcome to approach the mentors for assistance. Additionally, you are encouraged to set up your development environment on your own if you prefer. Visit the documentation guide on setting up a local development environment.

Do I need to register for DrupalCon to attend a contribution event?

Join us at DrupalCon for a series of exciting contribution events!
