Coming right up: a great way to start getting familiar with Drupal 8.
It's the annual Drupal Global Sprint Weekend, happening all over the world on the last weekend in January, the 30th and 31st.
Acquia, along with Genuine Interactive and OwnSourcing, will be sponsoring the Boston location, so if you live in the general area, please stop by.
Genuine's office, in Boston's South End, is spacious and inviting. And there will be a free lunch and plenty of beer.
The agenda will be simple: to work on porting modules to Drupal 8, and other issues in the queue. If you have built a site in Drupal, you can contribute.
If you've been meaning to start migrating your skills to Drupal 8, this is a perfect place to start: the atmosphere is friendly, casual, and helpful. On Saturday morning, for example, there will be hands-on "Getting Started" session for those who need it.
When: Saturday, January 30, 10 am to 5 pm; Sunday, January 31, from 10 am to 3 pm.
Where: Genuine, 500 Harrison Avenue. 5R, Boston, MA
The Genuine office is a 6-10 minute walk from the Broadway Red Line T stop. Or you can hop on the number 9 or 11 bus from Broadway T and get off in one stop at the Harrison Ave stop. Unrestricted parking is available on Randolph Street and certain parts of Harrison Avenue.
The New England event page has all the particulars.
And don't forget to follow the global page. It tends to expand as the event grows near.
See you there! (And if you can't make it, help the cause by spreading the word.)
