This session gives an overview of essential skills and knowledge you need to acquire when starting to use Drupal. It assumes nothing about your prior Drupal knowledge, but provides you with a map and guide book for getting into the Drupal world.
IVO RADULOVSKI, PRO PEOPLE
The proliferation of new communities worldwide represents varying levels of success at community development. The organization and strategy (or lack thereof) arguably is one of the biggest determinants of success for new communities.
The Drupal project uses "issue queues" to discuss problems and proposed new features for Drupal core, documentation, and contributed projects. In this presentation, I'll show you the basics of how to report an issue or propose a new feature, how to participate in discussions, the etiquette of reports and responses, and some tips on how to get your proposals accepted.
This growth is a sign of Drupal's fantastic success, but it also introduces stress on the community as we struggle to scale our development processes to match not just an of new users and an agressive development cycle. In this session Greg will discuss the ways in which the community is changing, how that affects Drupal development, and what we can do to make sure Drupal 8 is the best release ever.
