Contribution

Everybody has something to contribute

Drupal is made possible by a very diverse group of people around the globe using a huge variety of skills including but not limited to user experience design, project management, development, planning, testing, bug reporting, performance analysis, integration, triage, event organization, marketing, session recording, photography, translations, book authoring, and the list goes on and on. Some examples:

  • Translators — Your are good in a written language other than English? We need you!
  • Content Strategists — Want to work on reorganizing the documentation and improving the content quality? We need you!
  • Project Managers — You want to bring forward certain initiatives and know how to build a team with different expert skill sets and how to facilitate the progress? We need you!
  • Marketeers — You have ideas for advancing the promotion of Drupal and need a team? And you are good at sharing your strategy insights? We need you too!

And that is just for starters! If you have ideas on how to contribute, participate in our contribution opportunities.

When and how to join contributors

Drupal Europe hosts dedicated contribution days on the first and last days, Monday and Friday. There are also contribution rooms and spaces throughout the whole week, while sessions, BoFs and other events are happening as well.

  • If you are new to contributing your best way to join is on Friday when our well proven contribution mentoring happens. You will be able to join different teams based on your experience level then.
  • If you already have some experience contributing, just walk up to the promoted contribution teams (see the sheet below), introduce yourself and say you are there to help. Everybody likes people who offer to help, so don't be afraid.

Either way its best to sign up in the contribution attendance sheet because that helps team leads find you and know when to expect contributors as well as the conference staff to estimate capacity needed (rooms, tables, chairs, food and refreshments).

Looking for contribution mentors

Mentor group photo by Roy Segall (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0)

Already have experience contributing and want to help spread the best practices? We are looking for volunteers to serve as mentors. Mentors help new contributors set up their development environments (if needed), find tasks, and work on issues. Here is how you can get involved:

Attend mentor events at Drupal Europe:

  • Mentor for a half day or the whole day Monday or Friday
  • Assist participants in First-Timer Workshop on Friday
  • Review participants' work
  • Help people choose the right contribution room for them, greet people, take pictures, etc.
  • Have yourself listed many times as a mentor on drupal.org

We also mentor new mentors! We will hold a training session that will help prepare mentors - be sure to attend this session!

Learn more about mentoring at Drupal events. Contact the team in the #mentoring channel on Drupal Slack.

Drupal Mentoring

A member of the Drupal community since mid 2007 after being encouraged to share module code, he has continued to learn and share ideas. This includes an early interest in the menu routing and search systems, and lately more passionate about PostgreSQL, figuring out Typed Data, and volunteering as a mentor. He lives in Columbus, Ohio, United States, and actively participates in both the local PHP and JavaScript community, regional Drupal events, enjoys a growing collection of board games, and surprisingly finds himself more of a front end developer and devops recently.

CMS Support / Developer
The University of Edinburgh

I started working with Drupal four years ago in a support role to the University of Edinburgh Drupal 7 CMS. More recently I've started getting involved in site building, coding and contributing to modules. I have attended 3 DrupalCons and love the community spirit. Volunteering for Drupal Europe is my biggest contribution to date and has opened my eyes to how great this community is.
