Evolving Web at DrupalCon Denver

Feb 27, 2012 · by Suzanne Dergacheva

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

Update: We've revised our contest, see evolvingweb.ca/drupalirl for the updated version!

DrupalCon Ticket Giveaway

We have one extra ticket for DrupalCon Denver to give away. If you're a Montreal Drupaler who's planning on attending the Drupal 8 Multilingual code sprint in Denver, give us a tweet @evolvingweb and let us know you're interested!

Photo Contest

Following on the heels of our Drupal Crossword in London, comes our Drupal Celebrity Photo Contest! Hunt down your favourite Drupaler for a photo-op, then tweet the picture with hashtag #drupalceleb for a chance to win a camera! More information and contest rules at evolvingweb.ca/drupalceleb.

UPDATE: To address concerns raised about privacy, we've modified our photo contest, now called Drupal In Real Life photo challenge. For more info, see the follow-up blog post Drupalcon Contest, Take Two.

Session: Multilingual Site Building with Drupal 7

Curious about what it takes to integrate multilingual support into your website? I'm co-presenting a session on multilingual Drupal with Florian Loretan from Wunderkraut. We'll introduce you to Drupal’s multilingual architecture and help you get off the right foot when planning your next big project. Our session, Don't Get Lost in Translation: Multilingual Site Building with Drupal 7, will take place on Tuesday, March 20th at 3:45pm in Room 203.

Drupal 8 Multilingual Code Sprint

Gabor Hojsty will be leading a Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative codesprint on the last day of DrupalCon, as well the two days following DrupalCon. There has been a strong push towards greater multilingual support in Drupal 8, and we want to help as much as possible. We'll be at the sprint, so come by and help make this initiative a success. See Gabor’s post on groups.drupal.org for more information.

Silver Sponsors

We’re excited to sponsor DrupalCon Denver at the Silver level this year! Ever since DrupalCon DC, we’ve been showing our support for the conferences by pledging sponsorship at different levels. Join us in Denver at booth 103, where we’ll be hanging out for the week. Come by, say hello and grab some of our awesome swag.

While we’re busy getting ready for DrupalCon, we hope you’ve had a chance to review the schedule and fit in your favourite sessions. Tickets are still available, so get yours now. See you in Denver!
