Most Drupallers dream of being a contributor to the Drupal project. But, where do you begin? And more importantly, what are some of the tools to help navigate the adventure successfully? From the perspectives of both a "non-coder" and a coder, we will share some not-so-secret ways to feel better about jumping into the issue queue regardless of your technical background.
In this session, we will go over a couple of the tools that make contributing to the Drupal issue queue a bit easier when being a novice.
There will also be a lightning round demonstrating the process of creating an issue, writing a patch, uploading the fix to Drupal.org, and then reviewing the patch for RTBC (reviewed and tested by the community).
