About volunteering and open source contribution. A journey about what you can do for Drupal and what it can do for you.
In this talk, I will explore what is going on in the Drupal ecosystem with a focus on contribution and volunteering. There are many ways how you can contribute, and Drupal benefits from all of them. But more important, contributing provides every one of us with career opportunities, personal opportunities, and friendships across companies, countries and continents. Using Drupal Europe 2018 as example I will highlight successes and obstacles of and discuss a sustainable contribution system for Drupal.
