- Keynote: Economics of Drupal Contribution
- Drupal Association
- Contribution, Influence, and Drupal 8
Welcome to the Drupal community!
By now, you've hopefully learned a ton of useful things, met some great people, and even gotten the T-shirt. This session is for people who are ready to drink the Kool-Aid, but have no clue where to start.
Why should you give back to Drupal?
The software project called Drupal would not exist without the members of its community, and like every community its members are encouraged to pitch in and make the community better in any way they can. These supporting activities extend way beyond coding the software, and individuals of all skillsets and levels of abilty are able to contribute.
In this session I will discuss many types of contributions (spoiler alert: nearly all positive participation provides a benefit) and how individuals, employees/freelancers, and business organizations and give back to the community that provides great, free software.
