The Drupal North Code Sprint



July 07, 2015

The inaugral Drupal North Regional Summit was a blast!

The official Drupal North sprint was held on Sunday, June 28th, starting around 10am and ending at 4pm, in Ryerson University's Rogers Communication Centre Transmedia Zone. 21 attendees showed up from all over Canada, the United States, and even Costa Rica:

After everyone introduced themselves, Cottser and I gave an introduction to writing patches, and how issues move through the issue queue from "Active" to "Closed" (video to follow).

Then, we paired up to get Drupal 8, Drush, and Drupal Console working on our computers, and work on issues we were interested in. We worked on 9 issues:

At time-of-writing, 2 of these issues are fixed, and 5 more need review.

Also, congratulations to Jeremy Knab for his first commit mention in Drupal core (from #2501701)!

Overall, we had a great time and learned a lot! Thanks to everyone who came out, and to the DrupalNorth organizers for organizing everything!
