code sprint

Mike Meyers explains – Help Drupal and it will help you: contribute!

Michael E. Meyers, VP Large Scale Drupal at Acquia, knows better than most how contributing to the open source project you are relying on to build or improve your business will pay off. He and his team did just that when they successfully built and sold NowPublic.com – the first venture capital funded, Drupal-based startup – while making massive contributions to the Drupal project along the way.

He and I invite you not only to use Drupal, but also to make it better and to get involved with its community. If you're only using it without giving back, you're not getting the full benefit it could be giving you. Come to DrupalCon Amsterdam or an event near you and make a difference!

Getting the most out of a code sprint - DrupalSouth shows us how

The DrupalSouth code sprint was a huge success and a standout feature of an already excellent conference. I put this down to some ingenuity and some great preparation. I interrupted two of the people who made it all happen, Dan "dman" Morrison and Heike "HeikeT" Theis from Wellington, New Zealand, to get to know them better and talk about how they put together the code sprint at DrupalSouth.

Ruben Teijeiro explains why Drupal is easy

This week's podcast is parts of a fun conversation I had with Ruben Teijeiro at Drupal Camp Vienna in December 2013. I "borrowed" him from mentoring Manuela Hutter at the code sprint to talk with me, but in the end, they both still managed to get a lot done that weekend. Thanks for your contributions, folks!

Acquia Puts Resources Behind Work on New Drupal Version [Jan. 24, 2014]

Some time this year, a new version of open-source content management system Drupal is expected to be unleashed, Drupal 8.
The version is expected to be the most business-ready version of Drupal yet, according to Jeannie Finks, client advisory manager at Acquia.

The Burlington, Mass.-based firm provides cloud hosting and related services for companies that use Drupal for their websites. Acquia thus "aligns its business goals around the Drupal project," Finks said.
And so the firm — whose co-founder and CEO is Drupal creator Dries Buytaert — is putting resources behind the worldwide initiative to build the new version.

Those include sponsoring a "coding sprint" this weekend (January 26) for Drupal 8, to be held at Genuine Interactive in Boston (registration for the event has ended).

Drupal Holding Hackathon to Work on Open Source CMS [Jan. 20, 2014]

There’s an exciting global event coming up where talented people from all over the world will come together and sprint.

I’m not talking about the Olympics. I’m talking about the Drupal 8 Global Sprint. And unlike the upcoming Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, this weekend’s Drupal hackathon still has room for you.

Drupal, of course, is a popular open-source content management system. It runs about 2 percent of the world’s websites — not a huge share but an enormous raw number.

More than a million contributors from 230 countries make Drupal work and, from time to time, a bunch of them get together to do a lot of work in a short amount of time. The Global Sprint is one of those times.

Sprint events are happening in 30 cities worldwide, and there’s one in Boston Saturday at Genuine Interactive. It’ll probably be the coolest because it’s sponsored by Acquia, whose chief technology officer, Dries Buytaert, created Drupal.

Why DrupalCon London Codesprint was so good

By Heather James

Confession: I'm not a coder, and I love code sprints. Previously, I wrote about how Awesome BoFs are, but really, the best part of DrupalCon is: The Code Sprint. And London's was a great example. Here's why: the context, the space and organization, which I'll describe in more detail. Even with the amount of people involved (150+ about 10%) we could have fit more! I'd also like to convince you why you really don't want to miss the next one... because you will be guaranteed to experience the zeitgeist moment you can only get at the code sprint at DrupalCons.
