Drupal 8 Activity Cards for Study Groups. At Acquia India, 15 of us had enrolled ourselves in a self-guided D8 study group program.
Most of us are developers who are very familiar with D7. Some of us are already working on full time Drupal 8 projects while some of us are trying out some pet projects. The format of our study group looks like the below: We meet for 20 mins in the morning every alternate day (Mon, Wed, Fri) to discuss the activity card of the dayWe disperse and then complete the prescribed exercise offline during the dayOften, we discuss the challenges or blockers from the day’s exercise on the next call We have built a set of Activity Cards for this program. A small objective Primary TutorialExerciseSome cards have an additional secondary tutorial / reference material and a bonus exercise The exercises are crafted so they don’t take more than an hour to complete after reading the prescribed primary tutorial. These cards could be a great learning tool for small teams that might want to form a similar D8 study group.
Introducing Sections on Drupal.org. Last year Drupal Association staff—in collaboration with Forum One—analyzed the state of content on Drupal.org.
We developed a content strategy aimed at improving its quality and findability. Various recommendations were made for content structure, organization, and governance. Introducing a new Community Initiatives Process. One of the most important lessons of 2015 for the Engineering Team here at the Drupal Association is that we need better ways to engage with you, the community.
We realized we need better tools and ways to communicate with you about our current priorities, how you can influence those priorities, and how you can help make Drupal.org and the Drupal project better than ever. All of the work we do stems from the mission of the Drupal Association. Camp and Event Organizing Guide, Version 2.
This guide strives to help organizers of all types of Drupal-related events to effectively plan and organize their event.

Setting up IRC. This page explains what IRC is, gives some links to how to set it up, and tells you about some basic IRC commands and setup.
What is Internet Relay Chat (IRC)? See the Wikipedia IRC article for an explanation of what IRC is. The Drupal community uses IRC to have topical, general, and regional text chats around the world, at all times of the day, every day, in a variety of languages. Each chat is in its own channel. Some of the reasons we use IRC: - People who work on developing Drupal core and contributed modules use it to have development discussions on a regular basis, in the #drupal-contribute channel - People in local areas use it to have discussions with the people they see at their in-person meetings, and to keep in touch between meetings.
