So far, 2016 has been a great year for Drupal and Drupalize.Me. We started off as our own company, and we’ve been heads-down on lots of new Drupal 8 tutorials. We have a deep love for Drupal and the community around here—so in addition to working hard at our business, we encourage each other to roll up our sleeves in the wider community as well. Here’s a little rundown of what’s been on our team’s radar recently.
If you are looking for good community event ideas, or just want to understand some of what goes into planning an event, check out this week's Drupalize.Me podcast on The Story of the TCD'OH Drupal Unconference. Addi and Joe Shindelar hop on the line with Barry Madore and Tim Erikson to discuss why they did an unconference, and how they pulled it off. As a hint, it is less work than a DrupalCamp, but still requires a little thought about how to structure the unstructured day.
This week we have podcast episode 33. It's all about Global Sprint Days, coming up next weekend, on January 25-26, 2014. We talk about what sprints are, what's happening next weekend, and the why/how of getting involved. Go give it a listen, and then sign up for (or create) a local event!
In a few short weeks I'll be headed on the road once again for two great events: Twin Cities DrupalCamp and OSCON. On the surface these two events couldn't be more different. One is intimate, inexpensive, and full of Drupal. The other is big, an investment, and has hardly any Drupal. Seems like an obvious win for Twin Cities DrupalCamp, right? Well, let's dive a little deeper into what makes OSCON worth the price tag.
During the week June 24th a mass of Drupal folks will converge on Dublin, Ireland for Drupal Dev Days. This year, in addition to the three days of DrupalCamp that is happening (June 28-30), there is also a week of sprints leading up to the camp, and to the Drupal 8 code freeze deadline. This is it. If it's going to be in Drupal 8, it needs to happen before the end of June.
We're pleased as punch to be sponsoring DrupalCamp Austin in Austin, Texas from June 21st through 23rd. This year's camp is packed, with one day of all-day workshops, several half-day workshops, three tracks of sessions over two days, and two keynotes.
With the addition of Symfony to Drupal core, many Drupal developers are beginning to explore beyond the confines of our own amazing CMS. But where do you start? Conferences can be a great opportunity to step outside of your day-to-day time crunch and learn about new technologies. php[tek] is one of those great opportunities for module developers in the mid-west United States. This conference, now in its 13th year, has over 50 sessions spread over four days, May 14-17, in Chicago, Illinois.
Want to get started with Drupal? Join us on the first day of DrupalCamp London for an Introduction to Drupal course. Led by the accomplished Drupalize.Me team, this full-day training will cover Drupal history, terminology, simple site building and how to navigate the Drupal community.
