Drupal contrib days
We understand the importance of getting involved by contributing back and supporting the Drupal community through regular Drupal contrib sessions.
We understand the importance of getting involved by contributing back and supporting the Drupal community. Drupal Contrib Days have in fact become a common practice in our agency. It's where we all split up into teams and each team collaborates on contributing back to Drupal core or to various projects or modules.

For example, during the last Drupal contrib session one of our teams worked on porting Locker module to Drupal 8. Locker is a site authentication module that uses session to forbid access and serves as an additional layer to hide a Drupal site from public.
Another team contributed to project called Video Embed Screencast, a submodule of Video Embed Field module, which is a quick way to embed Screencast.com video in Drupal. It creates a simple field type that enables you to embed videos from Screencast.com simply by entering a video URL.
Another team worked on a project called Commerce Neteller, which is a Neteller integration for Drupal Commerce payment and checkout system that supports online payments using Neteller API.
Next project we contributed to was AudioField module. Audiofield adds a new CCK field that allows you to upload audio files and automatically displays them in a selected audio player.
The last project we contributed to was JSON Editor, which is a tool based on JSON editor library for viewing, editing, formatting, and validating JSON.
Actively contributing to the projects we use on daily basis has become an essential part of what we do. Contributing is the foundation of open source and contrib days are something that all of us look forward to. It helps projects move forward and stay competitive, it helps the entire Drupal ecosystem, and in the end it helps our customers.
