Evolving Web is running a Views configuration training at DrupalCon Portland this year. Views is the most popular contributed module on Drupal.org and an essential tool for any Drupal website. It allows you to create dynamic listings of content with just a few clicks of the mouse.
There will be a hive of activity around multilingual Drupal at DrupalCon Munich 2012! Whether you're new to multilingual Drupal or a developer wanting to change how Drupal works with language, there are lots of opportunities to get involved.
In an increasingly global world, Drupal core's support for multilingual content has made it a favourite CMS among large organizations. Despite that, Drupal site-builders and develpoers are often stumped by the myriad of possible approaches and tricks involved in making it work. Over the last few months, Evolving Web has worked together with Acquia to put together a multilingual site building course to walk you through the process step by step and unfuddle much of the complexity.
Yesterday we posted an article on Drupal Planet about our plans for Drupalcon Denver. Aside from promoting Suzanne's session on i18n site building and the #d8mi codesprint, the post announced our Drupalcon photo contest, in which participants are asked to take a picture of themselves hanging out with other awesome Drupalistas, which for many people is what the conference is all about. To try to make the contest go viral, we gave it an ironic name ("Drupal Celebrity Photo Challenge"), included a pic of our star-struck intern Tavish meeting Dries at Drupalcon London, and asked that all entries are submitted via twitter.
There are only a few weeks left until DrupalCon Denver, and we’re getting pumped up at Evolving Web for the year’s largest Drupal hangout. With an estimated 4,000 participants in mile high Denver, March 19-23th promises to be a week teeming with exciting sessions, networking and skiing! Four of us will be heading down to Denver, and we hope to see you there. We have lots planned for the conference from contests to sessions to code sprints.
After DrupalCon London, I was sitting on the banks of the Thames river sipping champagne when I remembered the time I told my friend I was joining the co-op program at Concordia. He launched into a story about his own co-op experience. One day, he had to do "pen testing".
Its often been said that the best way to get involved in the Drupal community is to dive in head-first and see where to help out. For the past year or so I’ve been nervous about giving my input on support forums and editing documentation. Always questioning my knowledge, I took the easy route by encouraging others to do so first. DrupalCon London was the first time I participated in a code sprint (well, documentation sprint), and I have to say that I’m a believer!
This year at DrupalCon, the Drupal Association organized a CxO event for owners of Drupal-based businesses. The event provided talks by four business experts who discussed business strategy, leadership, HR, and finance. The event also gave attendees a chance to connect and network specifically with other Drupal business owners.
DrupalCon offers lots of opportunities to learn about trends, new ideas, and new technology in the Drupal sphere. Here's a short list of the sessions from DrupalCon Chicago that we were most excited about.
Jeff and I are proposing a session for DrupalCon Copenhagen. At DrupalCon San Francisco, I was struck by how many people had questions about high performance Drupal. Many of them were thinking of moving to the cloud.
