Are you prepared for the core and contrib sprints at DrupalCon New Orleans? The full schedule of sprints can be found on the DrupalCon NOLA site. There are extended (early and post-con) sprints, sprints throughout the conference at the sprint lounge (rooms 275-277 at the convention center), and a dedicated sprint day on Friday. Additionally, there is a 24-hour sprint lounge at the official hotel.P2con_d2-0127(1)A preview of the various sprint efforts, as well as a way to sign up early is in this Google spreadsheet. While there isn't a requirement to sign up early, doing so will help the organizers prepare and organize the sprint tables accordingly.During the dedicated sprint day Friday, there are sprints for all levels. Mentored core sprints for folks wanting to jump into core, as well as a first-time sprinter workshop for those that want to learn the basics around contribution.The general sprints will cover various subsections of core, as well as contributed module ports to Drupal 8. While subject to change, there are quite a few different areas of focus already:

  • Drupal 8 majors triage (novice friendly!) and criticals (important!)
  • Contrib Corner (smaller modules and issues that don't fit into other sprints)
  • Drupal Commerce
  • All the Drupal UX
  • Decoupled blocks
  • Frontend United
  • Drupal Console
  • Core migration BC-breaking issues
  • Multilingual migrations
  • Multilingual (General)
  • Datetime core issues (I'll be working mostly on these)
  • Security (and/or infrastructure)
  • Deploy/Content workflow
  • Drupal.org project application fix/unblock

With one of the first major sprint efforts after the release of Drupal 8, there are opportunities for all to participate and make Drupal core and contrib even better! Even better perhaps, these sprints are a fantastic way to meet people in person you may only know from online, or not at all. Looking forward to seeing everybody there!
