We are hosting a free Mentoring & Collaboration day, Sunday at the FFW office. There will be sprinting on Drupal core and contrib (including non-coding work like documentation,) mentoring for new contributors, a workshop on Drupal 8 module development, and pretty much anything else Drupal-related. This event is open to everyone; all skill levels, all skill types, etc.
If you've never attended an event before, this is a great place to start. Most of the NJ organizers will be there, a few out-of-town Drupal experts who are here for the camp, and several people from the Drupal core mentoring team.
