Magento Contribution Day at Balance Internet - August 2018

Two days with Magento Community Engineer and a highly-skilled team of Magento Developers giving insights into Magento 2 development and contributing to the Magento 2 core.

What is it?

A Contribution Day is a hackathon-like event where we encourage the community to contribute to the Magento 2 Open Source product by opening pull requests and validating issues on GitHub. The majority of the participants will be in Melbourne, with some joining from other locations in APAC, Europe and Asia.

On Friday afternoon David Manners will do a series of the presentations on the community projects and Magento roadmap.

On Saturday we’ll start with sharing the instructions and the suggested list of tasks for the contribution. You can always grab the issues on the main project repository (Projects Board). At the end of the day, everyone will present the achievements to the team!

What can you choose?
