Community sets sights on DrupalCon Europe


Community sets sights on DrupalCon Europe

May 17 2012

With the passing of the call for papers deadline last week DrupalCon Munich is now a hot topic. Witnessing a fever pitched last minute rush, we have well over 300 session proposals. It is now the role of the track chairs to evaluate submissions using the new selection process. You are encouraged to use comments to indicate sessions you would particularly like to see featured. Final conference program and pre-conference trainings will be announced May 29th via this web site.

This week Neil Kent, Events Director at Drupal Association, was in Munich to meet with conference suppliers, finalise plans at the venue and members of the local organising community team. We are pleased to confirm he has secured a limited number of double rooms at an exclusive DrupalCon rate at The Westin Grand Hotel. Following the successful forumla at DrupalCon Chicago, we are particularly excited to provide attendees exclusive use of the majority of the facilities in the Westin Grand Hotel, home of the conference. Drupalers will have the freedom to meet, code, socialise anywhere, anytime, any way they please.

Florian Loretan, Community Representative, was recently interviewed by both Lullabot and Modsunravelled podcasts. He explains the conference theme "Open Up! Connecting Systems and People" and describes how it will shape the conference. 

If you can't wait until August, the next warmup event to DrupalCon Europe is Drupal Dev Days, Barcelona. From our local team Miro DietikerJoão VenturaFlorian LoretanDaniel NoldeAndreas Sahle and Ralf Hendel will all be attending. Be sure to look them up to find out more about what we have in store for devops track and core conversations. For the more adventurous Drupal Camping is coming to Allersee, Germany. In the meantime why not sample some of the fabulous attractions Munich has to offer on our Pinterest board

The DrupalCon Global Team has seen several appointments in recent weeks. Kris Buytaert, one of instigators of the devops movement, is now devops track chair. Kris recently defined his vision of how devops at Munich. Rick Nashleanas becomes the first Global Content Manager, his latest blog post he discusses the value global chairs will contribute. Karyn Cassio has been appointed Global Community Track Chair, and blogs about how she hopes to encourage people to Come for the Software, Stay for the Community.

for selling online, but after having read your inspiring story, I’m a little bit more encouraged and hopeful that if I just keep on learning I will be able to make this pay off. I do think, however, that it is easier said than done. SEO Services | SEO India
