General Sprints

Come collaborate in person with hundreds of other Drupal community members from 9:00-18:00 on Friday 29 September at the Messe Wien Congress Centre. This awesome day of collaboration is open to anyone; you do not need to be registered for the conference to participate. There are also other sprint days available.


General Sprints, the Mentored Core Sprint and the First-time Sprinter Workshop will be at the Vienna Congress Centre. You do not need to be registered for DrupalCon to attend and participate in Friday Sprints!

Friday General Sprints

We are currently collecting your sprint initiatives so we can list them here for others to find and get excited for.

Other Friday Sprints

Other sprints on Friday 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 from 9:00-12:00. The hands-on workshop will cover the basics of contribution essentials like using the Drupal.org issue queues, IRC, Git, and optionally setting up Drupal 8 on your laptop.

Mentored Core Sprint

Do you already have all the tools, have used the issue queue, and have a working Drupal 8 development environment on your laptop? Would you like to work with a mentor to contribute to Drupal core? Or would you like help finding an issue to work on or are you not quite sure where to start contributing? Join us at the 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 in the Drupal core issue queue and then help you work on it. You can create and test patches, write documentation, do manual testing, and more!

To get a head start, set up your Drupal 8 development environment before Friday. Attend the IRC core office hours from home. Or, at the conference, we will have plenty of opportunities to help get you set up at any of our Get Involved BOFs (times and locations TBD), or you can come to the First-Time Sprinter Workshop in the morning.
