Come for the software, stay for the community - how Drupal improves and evolves


Are you new to Drupal, experienced in the software but lack an overview of how all the pieces fit together in the community? In this session I intend to provide a brief overview of what Drupal is and instead of delving into technical details, focus more on how the different avenues to improve Drupal work. Systems like distributions, localizations, issue queues, the core and contributed modules repositories, the security team, automated testing and so on. How can you collaborate with the community and make money on the way? How is Drupal making an income for all kinds of people in the ecosystem?

This session is aimed at beginners or those who could use a good high level overview of different areas of Drupal.

Disclaimer: "Come for the software, stay for the community" was popularized by Dries and was independently submitted as a slogan suggestion (see the discussion). I think it is a great way to capture the Drupal spirit, so decided to use it for my session title.
