DrupalCon Szeged is fast approaching and though we are a sponsor, I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend. A number of my colleagues from CivicActions will be there though including Doug, Robin, Kevin, Jozef, look for them in sessions and at the Day 1 Exhibition.
DrupalCons are a great opportunity for the community to come together and share and move big ideas forward. It seems that everyone comes out of the events with energy and plans to improve the software and further strengthen the community. We’re happy and proud to be able to support these evnts.
In addition to sponsoring DrupalCon we are happy to continue our support for DrupalCamps around the world. Having sponsored and participated in camps in New York, Toronto, Vancouver and Seattle earlier this year, we have committed our support for the upcoming DrupalCamp Victoria and DrupalCampNZ. Seeing local communities come together around organizing these camps and helping new people come into the Drupal community is really exciting. Camps offer a wonderful opportunity to grow new talent (we’ve got two people on our team who started out at a camp!) and build local and regional communities.
The other exciting thing about camps is that they often involve far less travel and thus are more sustainable on individuals (who don’t have to trek half way around the world with the time cost and travel cost) and the environment.
