How to be a contributor to Drupal by Drupalista.me

  1. 1. Drupalista.me
  2. 2. What’s in it for me • Why newbs should consider contributing to opensource • Your value increases the more you contribute • When your value increases, you can find better job opportunities • When you get a job you love doing, it doesn’t feel like work anymore • In the end, everybody happy!
  3. 3. What we do: Our aims • A bit like drupalladder.org • A bit like mentorsdojo community • Get people interested in contributing • Make it fun! • Share your newly founded knowledge! • Add it to your resume. • Track your issues count. • Sample: Fixed 10 bugs on drupal.org – amazing! • Share your drupal.org user profile to prove it! • Apply to a drupal shop (Maybe X-team?  ). Learn from colleagues. Even nicer – you get paid for doing something you love! 
  4. 4. How to contribute - programmers • Learning to listen and understand an issue • Learn all that you can • First, look for an issue that interests you. • Reconnaissance: Learn all you can • Check out http://drupalladder.org • Coding style (standards) https://www.drupal.org/coding-standards • Git Basics https://www.drupal.org/documentation/git • Make a patch https://www.drupal.org/node/707484 • Know about backporting https://www.drupal.org/contributor-tasks/backport • Applying patches https://www.drupal.org/node/60108
  5. 5. How to contribute - Programmers • Scanning: Read up on the issue – read, google, analysis, add your thoughts to the issue.
  6. 6. What’s next? • Exploitation: Actually put your issue into your drupal installation • Get git, and install drupal locally https://www.drupal.org/dev-env • Test an issue https://www.drupal.org/contributor-tasks/improve-patch-standards and https://www.drupal.org/contributor-tasks/manual-testing • Reviewing a patch - https://www.drupal.org/node/1488992 • Read more about contributer tasks for programmers https://www.drupal.org/contributor-tasks/programmers
  7. 7. whoami • Hi I’m Joe Palala, the founder of mentorsdojo, a facebook and google plus community hoping to be a helpful resource for tech entrepreneurs and the IT community • Created drupalista.me - A #ContributeX inspired project • PHP developer – of the corporate kind. • Worked with a couple of companies • Diverse skillset – linux, front-end, dev-ops • Loves to use OpenSource software and share with others • I still use Windows. Why? Favorite Windows apps: foobar2000, various games, and Powerpoint. Yes. I said Powerpoint.
