Drupal Sprint - Vancouver

Getting set up - Please have these steps setup before the sprint!

  1. Create an account on Drupal.org if you do not yet have one.
  2. Set up an IRC client to access Drupal's IRC.
    • Server: irc.freenode.net
    • Port: 6667
    • Nickname: Use your Drupal login if it is available. (Registering your nick)

    Suggested clients:

    Read Drupal IRC information

    Join the #drupal-pnw and #drupal-twig and #drupal-contribute channels.

  3. Install git.
  4. Install drush.
  5. Install a local development stack.

    Drupal developer's suggest the Acquia Dev Desktop, which has installers for both Windows and Mac. Follow the Drupal Ladder instructions. (video)

    Other suggestions:

    • MAMP (Mac) (video)
    • WAMP (Windows) (video)
    • Ubuntu web server (linux) (video)

    Create 2 development sites with 2 databases. I recommend to easily compare without swapping branches:

    • d8.dev with a d8 database to do your development against
    • d8clean.dev (optional) with a d8clean database to compare your conversion code against the latest core.
  6. Clone Drupal 8 with git:

    (run these commands from within your respective web directories)

    D8 webroot:

    git clone --recursive --branch 8.x http://git.drupal.org/project/drupal.git your/d8/webroot/path
    cd your/d8/webroot/path
  7. Read some reference material
  8. Install the copies of Drupal and you're ready to patch!.

During the sprint

  1. Create an account on this site if you do not yet have one.
  2. Take a look at the sprint tasks or types of available tasks and see what you'd like to try.
  3. Work with a mentor to find a task.
