Contributing Client Work as a Culture

Room: 
Room 103

Everyone wants to give back to the Drupal community, but it's hard to find the motivation to write more code after a long day of client work.

Good news! Plenty of contribution happens during the work day and it doesn't take sponsorship to afford it. Instead, create a culture that contributes client work. The Return On Investment is more than karma.

This session will cover (but isn't limited to):

  • why the time spent contributing is worth it for you, the client, and the community (with examples).
  • techniques for writing code specific enough for the client, but general enough for the community.
  • patching a client's contrib modules the right way (which almost always involves contribution).
