Paris Commerce Sprint, January 17-21, 2011

Last year we held two Drupal Commerce sprints that resulted in plans for the general architecture of the modules and detailed specification of individual systems, like Rules based dynamic pricing. With major systems development largely finished, we're currently putting the final touches on a beta release as outlined in the project's DrupalCon Chicago roadmap.

Our plan of course is to show up at DrupalCon Chicago with a 1.0 release and an installation profile that lets anyone easily get a Drupal 7 e-commerce site up and running in minutes. It's a tall order, but it will serve the project, the community, and integrators well.

To that end, we're planning a Paris Commerce Sprint on January 17-21, 2011 in our offices. We've already invited a few major contributors to the project and our European partners to establish good dates for the sprint, and we're looking now for others who are interested in joining us for the week. We'll be focusing our efforts on performing QA in the following areas:

  • Multilingual / multicurrency usage
  • Entity revisions and log displays
  • UI design and customer / administrator usability
  • Rules / Views / Token integration
  • SimpleTest coverage

Any bug is fair game, but we won't be planning or developing new features. Ideally we'll end the week with a fair amount of patches and an even greater amount of issues to resolve in the ensuing weeks. Anyone with Drupal development experience is welcome, with Drupal 7 and/or Drupal Commerce experience being a huge plus. We'll kick the week off with a review of where things stand, and we'll have leaders over each focus area to keep things moving along.

This would be a great time for you to ensure the solidity of the system if your business depends on Drupal Commerce or if you're interested in partnering with us as we promote Drupal as the number one e-commerce platform in the world.

Contact us if you're interested in attending or sending someone to the sprint, and let's make it happen.
