Paid contributing to Drupal

Update sept 2021: this time is (sadly) over, who's interested to take over? :)

Starting this year, I have the opportunity to contribute to Drupal and get paid for it. While I've had sponsored time in the past, this time it's recurring: Dropsolid is paying me a day a month to work on Drupal core or contrib. 1 day is limited, however, make no mistake, even one day is useful to get into the queue and review issues or commit patches on contrib modules I maintain. And of course, I credit them in the issue queue.

The main areas where I will focus on for now are:

  • Issue queue gardening for Drupal Core (RTBC, NR, Critical)
  • Display Suite maintenance for D8
  • Configuration management issues
Note that I'm looking for areas where I feel comfortable and make sense for the company. For instance, I'm not going to work on IndieWeb during these paid hours - but feel free to contact me if you'd like to have me work on that :)

I'd love to have more these days like these, so if other companies are interested in sponsoring me to work on Drupal, get in touch and let's talk!

For now a big thanks already to Dropsolid and see you in the queue!

Doing maintenance on Display Suite today, thanks to @dropsolid ! One day a month does make an impact, so let's talk to see if I can get more days :) #drupal

We certainly want to give back a lot more! The more we grow, the more days we can add. To other companies using #drupal and #opensource, it's a choice and a must if you want to be ahead of the curve and survive. Don't just use what is given.

Result: been able to touch 19 issues and commit 9 patches. Many ready or reviewed for a new batch next month which is great! On top of that, I can now go home happily and practice piano so my teacher won't kill me :)

In the meantime I'll try to train my kids to replace me in the future. ;)

Tasty! That's a very nice and productive score! 🙃
