Getting Things Drupal (GTD): How the Drupal community works
About this session
Drupal isn't just a software project. It's also a growing community of individuals, teams and companies who build, design, theme and develop sites with Drupal.
In this session we'll talk about what it means to be a "good citizen" in the community, how to best utilize the resources available on Drupal.org and the *.drupal.org sites and where to look in the growing ecosystem of professional Drupal services in order to find the right people.
We will also hear about successes, mistakes to avoid and tips for engaging the community with well-crafted job announcements, in discussions on Drupal.org and on IRC, and ways to get the most out of Drupal conferences like DrupalCamps and DrupalCons.
