Drupal Providence is a monthly meetup focused on all things Drupal. We meet in downtown Providence at the headquarters of Oomph, Inc at 72 Clifford Street.
We host featured presentations, lightning talks, development challenges, open source contributions or an open forum to just talk Drupal. Our goal is to bring our local Drupal community together to network and collaborate.
Food and beverages are made available.
If you are interested being a featured speaker, please contact email@example.com
For the first time, Drupal Providence will be participating in the Drupal Global Contribution Weekend. This is a weekend where Drupalists gather for one weekend around the world solving issues in the Drupal issue queue.
Everyone is welcome; You do not need to be a developer to participate, non-technical folks can work on improving documentation on Drupal.org. If you have built a site in Drupal, you can contribute. We will split into groups and work on Drupal core issues. Bring your laptop! For new folks: you can get a head start also by making an account on Drupal.org, getting some contribution tools, and developers can install git before coming and git clone Drupal 8 core.
Instructions for cloning Drupal 8 core with git: https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/git-instructions
We will be communicating with the Drupal community over the Drupal slack channel. Make sure to create an account following the instructions here: https://www.drupal.org/slack
Lunch will be provided for all who participate by Talking Drupal (http://talkingdrupal.com).
Join us as we will spend the evening contributing to projects on Drupal.org. We will work in groups to fix issues in modules, profiles, and themes. This is a great opportunity to learn how to contribute to Drupal and earn contribution credit on your Drupal.org profile.
Things you will need:
* A computer with a running instance of Drupal
* A Drupal.org account
* General understanding of git and composer
Food and beverages will be available for all who attend.
At this meetup, all attendees are encouraged to discuss a brief topic with the group. Topics are not formal and do not need to be prepared prior to the meetup.
Not sure what to talk about? Here are some ideas:
* Talk about something cool you're working on currently
* Discuss something you've recently learned
* Ask a question to a problem you're trying to solve
There is no agenda or structure to these talks. This is a time for group collaboration!
Food and beverages will be available to all who attend.
