Habits of an Effective Drupal Contributor

Session Category Beginner Track Room Room 324 Audience All Attendees Time Slot Fri 9:00am to 9:45am (9/15/23)

Do you aspire to contribute to the Drupal community but are unsure what to expect? Have you read the documentation and feel like you still don't know how or where to contribute?

This session will help you fill in the gaps in the documentation as you make your journey as a first-time contributor. We will explore topics such as issue queue management, the credit system, invisible priorities, and how to make the most of your experience.

Help avoid pitfalls and stress, and increase your readiness for the road ahead by hearing stories and learning from the mistakes of fellow contributors.
