In just two weeks, we - almost the whole team of Amazee Labs - will be going to DrupalCon Amsterdam. Since DrupalCon Copenhagen 2010, I'm a regular attendee of the biggest Drupal event in Europe and very much looking forward to an entire week of work and exchange with the community.
Tour de Drupal
Dagmar organizes a motivated team of Drupal-cyclistas to be on the road from 25. - 28. of September. Riding the bike, sightseeing and other activities along the way should make these 4 days equally challenging and fun!
While Schnitzel, Diana, Kathryn and Bastian will get folks up to speed with Drupal 8 in their training, I will finally attend my first community summit at a DrupalCon. Especially initiative funding and fostering local user groups are my highly rated topics. After Drupal-touring Central America, co-organizing Drupal Austria events like DrupalCamp Vienna and running the #d8rules crowd funding campaign, I feel like there is a lot to talk about.
Session, BoFs, social activities, oh my...
As usual I have bookmarked various sessions from the conference schedule but won't be able to attend most of them. This is not entirely a problem: I'd rather go to some interesting BoF discussions, chat with friends from the community, make new ones, exchange ideas and try to (help) get things done in the coder lounge. All the sessions are recorded for later review, so one can see the favorite speakers live and spare the rest time for socializing.
I'm excited to present about the #d8rules status as one of 9 slots in the Drupal 8 Contrib Module Update session. Also we'll be doing a BoF on #d8rules to present & discuss the initiative in more depth.
Finally, we sprint to finish Milestone 1 of the Rules 8.x port together with many other sprinters from the community.
Not to forget that all this happens in the lovely city of Amsterdam - hope to get to see a bit of it as well :)
