Drupal has an amazingly diverse, yet cohesive and welcoming community which has prompted the phrase, "Come for the code, stay for the community" to become the unofficial Drupal motto. Like past Drupalcons, Drupalcon Portland will not only be full of knowledge sharing and skill honing, but community building. But the term "community" is a bit misleading. While regional user groups, camps and summits are most commonly thought of when referring to community, a large part of participating in the Drupal community is contributing code. In short, Community is code!
With that in mind, I'd like to invite you to submit a Drupalcon session for the community track. We're still accepting sessions focusing on better ways to start and run local meetups and camps, but let's start thinking about sessions that rock the boat and shake things up.
- How have you connected Drupal users in new and innovative ways?
- What are ways that we can better encourage contributors or mentor users?
- How can the community be more welcoming or streamline the contributor process?
- The Drupal 8 code freeze is coming! How can new contributors help with your initiative or project?
