This upcoming weekend, the global Drupal community is kicking off the New Year with sets of local sprints on January 17 and 18. The event is called Drupal Global Sprint Weekend, and as of this blog post there are almost 50 sprints scheduled all around the world. Phase2 is excited to be a part of this international event, hosting sprints at both our New York City and Portland offices and sponsoring a sprint at AnexusIT in Costa Rica.
For the past 2.5 years, we've worked with Robbie Holmes to host Drupal community events, called Drupal Play Days, at the Phase2 office in New York City. Over time, the agenda has grown more diverse to include topics like SASS and Compass, Vagrant and Puppet, and of course Drupal 8. Our own Mai Irie has also used a lot of recent Play Days to hold planning meetings for NYCCamp events held at the United Nations.
This month, we are excited to combine our Drupal Play Day with the Drupal Global Sprint Weekend at the Phase2 offices. This means that you're welcome to drop in, no matter your level in Drupal, from 9 AM to 5 PM. I repeat, you don't have to be a Drupal developer to come out - all skill sets and skill levels are encouraged to participate. The plan is to split into pairs to work on Drupal core issues tagged with #SprintWeekend. Phase2 will provide Wi-Fi, heat, and food.
Please remember to sign up on the Drupal Groups event page, indicating if you will be sprinting in New York City, Portland, or Costa Rica, so that we can plan appropriately for food and seating needs. In the meantime, be sure to spread the word using #SprintWeekend on Twitter.
We can't wait to see you this weekend! Don't forget to bring your laptop ;)
