Session Overview

Beginner Code and Development
Session Description: 

Come contribute to Drupal Friday before DrupalCamp LA. We'll be coordinating with Midwest Drupal Summit and Capital Camp on a Drupal codesprint! Come contribute together. This will be an All-Day event ... and all levels of contributors welcome to join! If you don't know how, we'll teach ... or you can just watch, learn, ask questions, hang out and have fun!

A few of the organizers likely won't be able to help (or even show up) before lunchtime. However, we'll have space available and IRC #drupal-contribute is sure to be busy. But the doors are open (even if you're early) and if you'd like to help lead in the morning, just come do-it! If you want to help coordinate in any other ways to make this sprint more effective -- please contact me!

Session Overview

Beginner BoF
Session Description: 

Come contribute! Join us! For the past few months we have had monthly Contribute Back! Meetups and they have been fantastic! During each we either contributed patches or helped somehow in the process. As a result we've already helped get code committed to Drupal core! Want to help? Can't code? no problem. There truly is something for everyone to do. We'll help teach you.
The agenda is simple. Show up, bring a smile, and be prepared to work. Optionally, post link(s) to issues youd like to work on in the comments below. Otherwise, we'll get started on novice issues together.
Don't be intimidated we walk-through the process of reviewing and submitting patches together. If you have never done this before, then this a great place to learn.

If you would like to see a list of issues that we have worked on in last few meetups. Checkout our LA Drupal Issues Wiki Page. Here we list what we have worked on and what the status is of issues that still need some love.

Session Overview

Intermediate Code and Development
Session Description: 

This session is meant to help those who are interested in contributing back to the Drupal project and would like some guidance on the process.

The topics I will be covering are as follows:

- Becoming a contributor
- Ways to help out
- Where to look for help in your module building adventure
- What to and, what not to do
- A walk-through of a very basic module I created
- Setting up a Sandbox
- Git Access
- Actually submitting your module

NOTE: this is not a detailed discussion on building modules but more of a overview of the process necessary to get contributing.
