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.
I do not consider myself a coder. My contributions in the issue queues both in drupal.org as well as in the GitHub repository of Backdrop CMS had very little to do with actual code. That was until a few months ago Geoff (a.k.a. @serundeputy) showed me a way to create PRs though the GitHub UI that I find very easy (although not very coder-like).
In Backdrop, as in Drupal, there usually seems to be more than one way of doing the same thing, and in this blog contribution I am not suggesting that this is THE way to theme your site, it just happens to be a way I have used with some success.
