How to start contributing to Drupal without code

Session details

Not all of us are destined or even want an illustrious role as in core or contributed module developer. I don’t even know how to roll a patch and by now I’d be dangerous in git.

My passion has always been in non code contributions and I want to help those of you who have yet to find your outlet, or want to get more involved.

This session will be a bountiful selection of impactful ways you can start to contribute to Drupal outside of the code, sourced from community members across the globe and in all manner of interest areas.

There’s never been a better time for people like you to get involved. So many more ways to contribute no matter how little time you have. By the time this session is done, hopefully I will have inspired you and identified several different people and places to go to start your contrib journey!

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
