LET’S HACK ON DRUPAL CORE!
Drupal 8.4 introduced a new Media module in core, beginning the process of adding proper out-of-the-box media handling to Drupal. However, you might not know this, because it's currently a hidden module due to its UI being unfinished. We need developers to work on some of the issues that are blocking it from being visible in Drupal 8.5! So we’re kicking off 2018 with a two-day sprint to advance some of these goals.
If you’re a Drupal 8 module developer and you’d like to get involved with core, you’re exactly who we’re looking for. We’re going to hit the ground running and work on a specific set of Media issues in Drupal core — specifically, issues concerned with polishing Media’s user interface, which is the main obstacle to making the Media module visible to site builders. Expect to be handed an issue and get your hands dirty. You will be able to have your work reviewed by Media maintainers and core committers during the sprint, so that you can make progress quickly.
This is an unmentored sprint, so it’s best suited to developers with some Drupal 8 coding experience. Previous experience with core is unnecessary, but experience with Drupal 8 coding is. However, we’ll have a quick tutorial on writing tests, for those who have not done it before. We’ll also help you negotiate the issue queues and such.
Oh, and there will be pizza. And coffee. And probably beer.
