It’s that time again — time for the biggest Drupal event of the year. DrupalCon North America comes to Los Angeles next week. Our team will be joining the thousands of Drupal users, developers and designers at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the week long event. This is the seventh year in a row that Aten has sponsored DrupalCon, and we’re thrilled to support several other events during the week.
Stanford Drupal Camp 2015 is happening this Friday and Saturday, April 10th and 11th. It's two days of presentations and great conversations about Drupal with people from the University and from around the Bay Area. We're thrilled to help support the event again this year. The event is free and open to anyone, but you need to register to attend.
The second annual Drupalcamp New Orleans will be held at the Launchpad co-working space on March 28th. I'll be presenting Taming the Project, an Agile Approach.
MidCamp — the Midwest Area DrupalCamp — is underway and Aten has joined the Drupal fun. The conference is being held at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). We’re excited to support the event and contribute content, with sessions from James Nettik and Scott Reynen.
Not long ago, I went to a Denver area Drupal meetup. When it was my turn to introduce myself to the group I announced my name, took a look around the room and blurted out “... and I’m the only woman here.” I immediately felt weird about saying that out loud. But I’m glad I did. Why? It’s complicated.
BADCamp is one of the largest and most important Drupal events of the year. On top of a weekend of sessions covering development and nearly every other aspect of Drupal work, BADCamp starts off with two days of in-depth Summits. It’s just a few days away, but admission is 100% free and you can still attend if you register.
I just got back from DrupalCon Amsterdam. In many ways it reminded me of my first DrupalCon in Barcelona. In 2007, I was brand new to Drupal and excited by a turn I had made in my career. I was astonished by what was then a young and energized community. I saw so much possibility and started making friends. Some of these people, seven years later, are my best friends.
Next week I'm heading to New Orleans for the 2014 CSS Dev Conference. I'm super pumped for three full days of CSS nerdery!
