Contributing to Drupal: A ‘someday’ hopeful makes his first Core commit with community help

Drupal.org - Tue, 03/17/2020 - 22:13

Pekens Antoine (pekens, pictured here) was doing research on content management systems while running a digital marketing agency, and was exploring Drupal, which he viewed as a “well-thought-out system being developed by a lot of smart people,” and with that he “wasn’t sure if a contribution from myself could make a difference.”

But Drupal and its community held his interest, and in 2018, he attended his first Drupal event—DrupalCon Nashville. He went on to participate in two Drupal Camps as well thus far. It’s been these in-person experiences that left a lasting impression.

“It’s a great feeling to walk up to the maintainer of a project you use every single day and ask them a question,” he says.

This feeling was amplified at the New Jersey Drupal Camp afterparty earlier this year, when he met people and they all spontaneously opened up their computers and worked on a Drupal Core issue that had come up in conversation.

“I realized that I could probably learn a lot about Drupal from the people at the table,” [who he offers a ‘shout out’ to: @traviscarden, @bnjmnm, @tedbow, and @jrockowitz], “and I wanted to do more than build sites with Drupal—I wanted to help build Drupal. They were kind enough to show me their process.

Travis Carden notes: “What I thought was particularly compelling about his story was the fact that he didn't previously view himself as a potential Drupal contributor. He said, ‘I would like to someday be able to contribute.’ But he was eagerly received by the group of us.” 

Their conversation continued on Slack:

Travis Carden I don't know if you already saw it or not, but your Drupal core patch got committed the same night: https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/3110525 It now appears on your profile: https://www.drupal.org/u/pekens Congratulations, and welcome to the ranks of Core contributors!

Be an ambassador!

Drupal.org - Tue, 01/21/2020 - 21:43

Drupal is often spoken about as far more than an open source project, because our global community is vibrant and passionate; a model for other projects to learn from and emulate. There are many ways to be a Drupal ambassador: by mentoring others, by helping people answer why they should use Drupal, and why they should contribute. In addition, I have a few ideas on ways you could be an ambassador for Drupal by sharing about yourself with the global community. By participating, you help put a story behind the people of Drupal, and you show the broader community why the Drupal Association needs support. We'd love to have you involved!

Give a testimonial

".... because of it's wonderful community which has such inspiring contributors spread around the world. Being a member fills me with immense positive energy :)" — Surabhi Gokte (surabhi-gokte)

Get inspiration from the testimonials and share your own.

Be featured on Drupal.org

We're running the banner ad on Drupal.org - visible only to users who don't have an active membership. You may see these banners throughout the year (usually for a week-long run) if you visit without being logged in. To participate, email me or chat on Slack (lizzjoy).

From this month's #MemberMondays.

This month, we've launched social posts about a different member each week. We're calling it #MemberMondays. You can share about yourself in this questionnaire.

I hope you participate— it would be wonderful to share about you with the global community. If you are interested, but feel you don’t have time or are hesitating, let us know.
