Work Out Loud: November 7-11—Come Share What You’re Working on This Week! ⚡

Hi all! :wave: Hope everyone’s having a great week so far!

This Week’s Featured Tweet:

Did you catch last week’s episode of Talking Drupal? Tearyne Almendariz (@NineLivesBlackCat), Developer Advocate at Pantheon, and Blake Bertuccelli, Founder of Equalify, talk about WebOps enabled accessibility and why you should care about it. I definitely encourage you to take a listen, so you can learn how your digital work can be more accessible!

Now, let’s get right to it! For those of you who are new here: Work Out Loud is a weekly opportunity to share what we’re working on, who we’re meeting with, and what we’re doing in our free time. There are no rules here—share whatever you’d like!

Good morning all. I hope your November is off to a good start.

I spend a bit of time in the Drupal Slack. If you’re using Drupal, the Drupal Slack is a great place to get ideas, share ideas, and help Drupal developers and site builders work through problems. Recently, I was motivated to post my very first contributed module to in response to a Slack user who was looking for a way to have email notifications sent to content managers when content got old and needed review.

This week I got my very first bug report. I love this for two reasons: (1) people might actually be interested in the little module I made; and (2) I’m crowdsourcing the review of my code. Fortunately for me the bug was just a careless mistake on my part – easily fixed.

The more I am involved with the Drupal community – reporting issues, contributing code, helping maintain modules, participating in the Slack, here on – the more I really appreciate it.

Thanks for sharing your recent accomplishments + what you’re working on this week, Aaron! :clap: :clap: And congrats on posting your first contributed module to!!! So exciting!!! I also contributed to for the first time earlier this year (helped review/edit documentation). I love how Drupal makes it easy for non-devs (like myself) contribute + how supportive/collaborative the entire community is - I so appreciate it! :yellow_heart:
