Drupal Community Involvement Study, Part 2: Defining "Contribution

Introduction: Over the course of the summer, I've been working on a Master's Thesis focused on the experiences of Drupal contributors, and the roadblocks they face when they try to contribute their talents to the Drupal project. Over the next week or two, I'll be blogging the results from this survey here.

Participants

Drupal Community Involvement Study: Your feedback needed!

Do you work with Drupal? Do you (or have you considered) doing Drupal contribution? I'm conducting a short survey to learn more about the experiences of Drupal contributors, and those who want to contribute, but haven't been able to figure out how or what they can contribute yet.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this brief survey. Your feedback will directly impact the work that we're doing on the Community Tools team to improve the user experience of Drupal.org and Groups.Drupal.org.

Drupal Community Pilot Survey

In fall 2013, me and Adi Meir, a colleague at the Bentley User Experience Center and classmate at Bentley, collaborated on a survey to study the motivations of Drupal contributors. Specifically, we were looking at a couple of fundamental research questions:

The 8 wastes in prototyping

RIP Eric Nordin, 6/16/49–12/18/12

On Tuesday, December 18, 2012, I lost my father, Eric John Nordin, to a two-year-long battle with lung cancer. Dad spent his life trying to turn his passion into a career. Sometimes, he was successful (for example, turning a passion for motorcycles into a 15-year career as a bike mechanic); other times, not so much (like his side business selling public domain software at the local flea market).
