Writing your first PR for Backdrop CMS

This session is specifically for OpenForce 2022 participants to help you get started in the Backdrop CMS issue queue, but anyone interested in contributing to Backdrop CMS is welcome. 

We will discuss:

  1. How to select an issue to work on.
  2. How the Backdrop CMS issue queue works.
  3. How to set up your local environment.
  4. Where to get assistance if you need it.


Future of Basis / New Core Theme

For the last 12-18 months, some of us in the core issue queue have been debating the best way to make changes/improvements to the Basis theme without breaking existing sites. There are several ideas out there, but we have yet to reach consensus on any of them. 

One idea that is being currently discussed would be to add a new theme to core. 

In this session, we'll have an open discussion about the future of Basis for Backdrop and whether or not it's time to add a new theme to Backdrop Core. 

Core Development Update

In our three previous iterations of Backdrop LIVE core committer, Nate Lampton, walked through recent additions to Backdrop Core and talked about some of the new features in the pipeline. 

This was also a chance for anyone else to ask questions or suggest feature that they would like to see prioritized. 

Let's do it again.
