Free Hands-On Theming Course May 18-22

DrupalCon Minneapolis, and the theming workshop we were planning to present, isn't going to happen this year, but instead we're going to make our Hands-On Theming course free all of next week, May 18–22, the original week of DrupalCon. This online course is based on our in-person workshops and covers the same material. If you enjoy the course, and have the means, we also ask that you donate to the Drupal Association to support their critical work and future DrupalCons.

DrupalCon Baltimore Tuesday, April 25th

DrupalCon Baltimore officially started yesterday, on April 24th with summits and workshops, and the arrival of thousands of Drupalers from around the world.

Today, Tuesday, April 25th is the first day of sessions, and it kicks off with the first keynote, by Dries Buytaert, also known as the Driesnote. The Driesnote is also always preceded by the Pre-note, for the early risers. After a full day of sessions and birds of a feathers, the Women in Drupal meetup will be happening at Luckie's Tavern from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight.
