Code Sprint

How a Sprint works:

Other developers will work with you to find issues to work and focus on. You don't need to worry about researching the issues on your own. This is true for both the contributed module and core sprints.

How to Prepare for the D8 Core Sprint: 

Please set up your Drupal 8 environment before you arrive. Do this on your laptop by installing Acquia Dev Desktop, or installing on your local environment (without MAMP). If you need help setting up your environment, we can help you at the sprint. However, we urge participants to do this setup beforehand so we can minimize set up time and maximize our time tackling the issues
