Drupal 8: Start Contributing with the Drupal Ladder

Here at Drupalize.Me everyone is contributing time to Drupal 8. For my part, I'm turning my attention back to the Drupal Ladder. I was heavily involved in this project when it started a few years ago, and it remains a great resource for bringing people up to speed on the technical aspects of contributing to Drupal Core. The Drupal Ladder is a collection of lessons—organized step-by-step like a ladder—that walk you through the basic tools and processes used by the Drupal community. If you want to contribute to Drupal 8, the Drupal Ladder is an easy place to start, and your first step should be the Drupal Core Ladder. (There are numerous ladders for different topics; stick with the Core ladder initially.) Here are two ways you can dive in:

Release Day: Testing and Writing Patches with the Drupal Ladder

We've been doing a lot of work with the Drupal Ladder, and we have two new FREE videos in the Drupal Ladder series. These cover the next two steps of the Ladder, testing and writing patches. Both lessons use a Drupal 8 sandbox site that has a known bug in it. First you walk through the process of testing a patch that someone else has provided, and in the next lesson you learn how to write that patch yourself. There is no crazy coding involved — the patch is changing some help text in Drupal core.

Drupalcon Munich Recap

DrupalCon Munich 2012 was a blast! The whole Drupalize.Me team (myself, Joe, and Kyle) went over to Germany and soaked up the Drupal goodness. I had a very busy con, and want to share some of the great things that came out of it. (I'll try to be brief, but wow there was a lot of good stuff just in my little corner of the con!)

Release Day: Drupal Ladder Teaches Git and the Issue Queue

This week we are continuing the free Drupal Ladder series with two more steps on the ladder. In the first video in the series we got a local Drupal site set up. In these two videos we move on to the two most important community tools for jumping in: Git and the Drupal.org issue queue.

    Release Day: Free Series on the Learn Drupal Ladder

    Today we have a new series that we're very excited about! Back in March we talked about a new community initiative called Learn Drupal, and the great plan they have to get more people contributing back to core by creating a ladder of lessons. I've personally started to have some meetups for this here in Copenhagen, and I made some time to create videos to go with the lessons.
