The community: how do I get involved?

Wether you're dabbling with Drupal on the side, or using it as a professional, you're not alone. There are many Drupal lovers like you. There's a community! It's this awesome group of people who are building, maintaining, discussing, writing about,... Drupal. The Drupal community is a cool place to be involved in. But how does one get started? Where does one begin? There are so many aspects and the Drupal project is so large. It's not easy to dive in and contribute.

In this session, I'll introduce you to some of the more practical aspects of how to hit it off in the community. I'll be talking about questions such as:

  • What is the Drupal community?
  • Where do I find other Drupal minded people?
  • How does one contribute Drupal modules & themes?
  • What is the Issue queue? How do I use the issue queue to my and your benefit?
  • How can I contribute to Drupal core?
  • What are the benefits of combining community & company?
  • ...

Matthias has been involved with Drupal since version 5 back in 2008. He's been living Drupal ever since. He tries to contribute code, issues & knowledge on a regular basis.

You're definitely a Drupal rockstar! But you don't know it. Yet. Attending DrupalCamp might be you're first step to fame and glory.
