What is a Sprint?
A sprint is a get-together for focused work on a project. Sprints are an important part of Drupal's growth, and are also a great opportunity to get involved, because others are on hand to help you contribute. There are many sprints scheduled before, during, and after DrupalCon, so come and collaborate in person with hundreds of other Drupal community members!

Who Should Come?
Everyone! You don't need to be a developer to contribute; we need project managers, bug reporters, QA testers, people to help write documentation, etc... If you ARE a developer but not sure where to get started, we have mentors to show you the ropes.
If you prefer to set up your own Drupal 8 environment, here are the tools you will need. Or, you can try the tools installer.
