Contribution Day

What is Contribution Day?

A contribution day is a day where people get together to work on one particular goal. In this case, we’re working on various Drupal issues or community-led initiatives. Issues can be making patches, reviewing/testing other's patches, reporting issues, creating or updating documentation, or anything else that helps Drupal become better for the community.

Are you new to tech, not a coder, or never visited the issue queues?

That’s perfectly fine! There will be mentors available for those who need a little help to get started.

Not everyone who works on open source projects is a developer. Smaller tasks help the less experienced gain confidence and experience, which, in turn, leads to more contributions. Code is very important, but so are all the other parts.

For DrupalCamp Manila 2020, we will concentrate on Drupal 8 issues and contributed projects. Basically, we’ll look at all the Drupal 8 issues, and make sure we understand them. We also want to give time to include special community projects like the GWT Theme

There are plenty of contributed projects and themes that have issues in their queues.

Getting started with Drupal 8 (and Drupal 9!)

Drupal, an open source content management system, is used to make many of the websites and applications you use every day. Drupal has great standard features, like easy content authoring, reliable performance, and excellent security. 

In this hands-on training, we will walk you through the essentials of creating your first Drupal website. By the end, you’ll have an understanding of Drupal’s fundamental building blocks and a working sandbox on your local machine or cloud environment that you can continue to use for as long as you like. From there, you can continue to explore at your own pace with our recommended self-serve training resources.

KEYNOTE: A new grand compromise in content management

In the early days of the content management system, we forged a grand compromise between content editors and marketing teams and their developer and engineering counterparts. This CMS compromise led to an uneasy alliance between disparate back-office departments and ensured the wild success of the humble CMS as a software trend to be reckoned with. Fast-forward twenty years, however, and the CMS landscape seems splintered and woefully unprepared for both the ongoing explosion in content delivery channels and the dizzying innovation in the front-end development world. Some are even saying the post-CMS era is here.
