Become an advocate for a new feature in Backdrop CMS 1.15.0

Is there a feature that you would REALLY like to see get into the next release of Backdrop CMS, but you don't think you have the skills to write the code for it? Then consider becoming an advocate for that issue.

What is a mini-camp, you ask?

In this case, we're calling it a mini-camp, because it's a one day event, full of Backdrop CMS related sessions. It's scheduled on training/summit day at Twin Cities Drupal Camp. It's like a camp within a camp. It's a mini camp!

Backdrop Contribution Day - April 20, 2019

This weekend Jen Lampton will be working with a group of high school students, in the Oakland area, on contributing to Backdrop CMS. In support of these efforts, we have decided to announce an informal Backdrop CMS contribution day. If you are a supporter of the Backdrop project and have been looking for an opportunity to contribute, Saturday would be a great opportunity to jump in and help us with a task, regardless of where you are. 

Backdrop Meeting Notes (Dec 27, 2018)

It's not too late to schedule your own Backdrop Birthday Party for January 15th (we'll be 4 years old and releasing v.1.12.0 on the same day).
