On Friday the 22nd there will be sprints at Techhub which run in parallel with the business day at Drupal Camp NW 13. I’m hoping to be there for the sprints pending confirmation of my holiday! After the sprints/business day it makes sense for everyone to get together and go grab some food and drinks. Since everyone will be around the northern quarter we should make the most of it. For food/drinks we’ll head to A Place Called Common, they serve great burgers and have food suitable for vegetarians (not sure about vegan). If your not fussed about drinking then...
On the 22nd October Manchester saw it’s very first Drupal Sprint, this was run in parallel with London Sprints. Regular sprints are now becoming a great way to help out with Drupal Core and Contrib.

The people that organise and run these events are quite something, 9 to 5 days don’t exist for them. So this is where you come in, it’s easy to help out: Volunteering - everyone needs...
I’m proud to announce Drupal Sprints Manchester (UK). Last year at Drupal Camp NW I spoke with various other northern Drupalers and decided that we should get together and attempt to emulate Drupal Sprints London. The format is simple, Drupal developers / themers / builders get to together and work on Drupal core and contrib. My aim is to provide a space where people can get together and get stuck in working on Drupal and giving back to the community in the form of code, all that’s required is a laptop with an development stack and your brain. The first...

Hospital Records - iTunes
John B Podcast - Sound Cloud
Chillstep Works by Ideal_Noise - Sound Cloud
