The Multilingual Sprint at NYC Camp at NYC Camp will bring together some of the most prolific Drupal contributors to the Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative (D8MI). In addition to the initiative lead, Gábor Hojtsy, we'll have several key contributors attending NYC Camp to assist with the sprints and contribution efforts. We'll have sprint space/activities occurring each day througout the camp; however, the major sprinting efforts will be occurring as part of the all day sprint on Sun. April 13.
D8MI aims to build some of the best functionality of these most commonly used tools right into Drupal 8 core, making site building with multiple languages in mind a much easier experience. Also, we have a mission to improve both the user experience and the developer experience on the way. It is important that all contributed modules build off of the existing language functionality making Drupal even more supportive of languages.
