Getting Street Creds / How to be an active Drupal Citizen!
Drupal is BIG and only getting bigger. There is room for everyone and when I say "everyone" I mean YOU! Maybe you're not ready to write the next biggest module or submit a patch for core. There are still many ways that you can participate in the community and get some street creds. We're going to cover as much as we can in here. We're going to leave some time for Q-n-A as well. The points I really want to make are as follows: Getting and using your Drupal.Org account Getting and using your Groups.Drupal.Org account How to get on IRC and chat with Drupalers from around the globe [And why you need to] The benefits of being an individual member of the Drupal Association. [I'll explain what that is] How to contribute to the Drupal.Org handbook! [We Want You to WRITE THE HANDBOOK!] :-) How to find or START local Drupal Users Group. [Like I did in Indianapolis Indiana]
AND FINALY, Why doing all this will help not only your street creds BUT you income potential as well! If you have any questions about this session contact me http://dougvann.com/contact-doug-vann
