Ready you’re keyboards folks, Phase2 is going to rock your hacker world all Monday night to kick of DrupalCon with big hack prizes, plenty of snacks and heineken to keep the creativity and development flowing.

Drupal distributions are crucial drivers of adoption and innovation in the open source community. It is vital for development progress and growth that Drupal distributions continue to be community-driven endeavors. From Drupal core developments for Drupal 8 install profiles to Drupal App development, test your Drupal chops against other badass Drupalers by hacking on drupal distribution projects at DrupalCon Amsterdam and hack on the following categories to be eligible for prizes:

  • Drupal 8 Install Profile Development
  • Most innovative use of Apps
  • The most creative and useful Open Atrium App
  • The most creative and useful Panopoly App
  • The most creative and useful OpenPublic App

Come with a project idea in mind, and share it with the crowd to recruit collaborators for your effort. Or, join up with other Drupal contributors to find a project idea that inspires you.
