Anyone with Drupal site building experience can attend our Community Tools Workshop to get set up with all the tools for contributing to Drupal (like git, IRC, and a Drupal 8 development environment), or our Get Involved with Core sprint to work on a core task with the guidance of a mentor.
There will also be numerous opportunities for experienced contributors to dive right in and contribute to Drupal in specific areas. Be sure not to miss it!
