Announcing Drupal Sprint India, a gathering of Drupal enthusiasts from all over India and across, to contribute to Drupal development! An event for those who love Drupal, geeks and non-geeks alike!
Drupal is probably the best community driven CMS in open source. Community driven software needs community contributions for regular enhancements and this is your chance to contribute and gain karma. Drupal Sprint India is a two day non-stop event where Drupal developers, documentation and translation guys will get together to enhance Drupal. We will have code sprints, documentation sprints as well as translation sprints.
Join coding sprints to fix patches for upcoming Drupal 7 release or to port modules from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 or to develop new modules from scratch. Join Documentation sprint to document Drupal (which will be headed by Addison Berry, the Drupal documentation project lead). Those interested in localization can join the party to translate Drupal to local languages. You need not have *any experience* with enhancing Drupal before hand, even newbies are invited!
That is not all, we have more in store for you! Got any Drupal success story to share or you have put Drupal to any innovative use or any magnificent case study where you have integrated Drupal with third party web services or web sites? This is the time to showcase this. Parallel to sprint, we will hold talks and workshops to showcase the capabilities of Drupal to build websites. If you have a story to showcase, register for the event right ahead!
Talks/Workshop registration ends October 15 2009. All talks and registrations submitted will go through a community voting and top 10 talks plus workshops will be chosen for the event. We plan to hold total of 8 hours of talks and 8 hours of workshops around Drupal over two days.
