Drupal Association Board Meeting: 18 February, 2015

February may be the shortest month of the year, but it's certainly been one of the busiest for the Drupal Association, so I apologize for taking more than a week to get this summary post up! What's been keeping us so busy?

Let's Meet the Candidates!

Nominations are now closed for the single At-Large seat on the Association Board of Directors. We have an astounding 24 candidates from 14 different countries running for this seat. We are so thrilled that so many of you are so invested in our community that you are taking this step. As with any election, we want to have an informed electorate.

Infographic: Who Attends DrupalCon?

Did you know that DrupalCon isn’t just for developers? The community survey we conducted at the end of 2014 turned up some interesting facts, including the fascinating statistic that only about half of DrupalCon attendees self-identify as developers? With project managers, C-level executives, and Drupal sales and marketing experts in attendance, DrupalCon is a great place to meet a wide array of passionate Drupal users and advocates.

So, who goes to DrupalCon? Check out the infographic below for a more complete picture of who attends the biggest Drupal conference on earth.

Nominations Open for Drupal Association At Large Director

It’s a great time to be part of the Drupal Association. We’ve done some amazing work in the last few years, and we’re in a great position to work with the community to continue to improve and grow fully into our mission. As a Drupal Association At-Large Director, you’d be in the center of the action. The At-large Director position is specifically designed to ensure community representation on the Drupal Association board and we strongly encourage anyone with an interest to nominate themselves today.

Help us welcome our four new staff members

The Drupal Association is thrilled to announce the addition of four new staff members. As part of our goal to increase Drupal adoption and provide the community with strong support and advocacy, the organization has been growing at a rapid rate over the past year. Now, we’re welcoming four new staff members into the fold. Please help us say hello to Elise, Lucia, Rachel, and Tim!

Drupal Association Board Meeting: 21 January 2015

In the first board meeting of 2015, we hit the pause button and looked back on 2014. With all the numbers in and so many projects completed, we wanted to evaluate our success (and our misses) with the board and with you. We feel really good about what we accomplished with the rest of the community. To me, it's doubly impressive because the Association spent so much of last year growing like crazy.

Drupal.org team week notes #31: 2014 in review

Now that we are few weeks into 2015, we’d like to look back at 2014 and share some interesting numbers about Drupal.org.

Last year Drupal.org received almost 48.9 million visits from 21.2 million unique visitors. The spike around September/October is due to spam-related traffic, and, of course, DrupalCon Amsterdam.

India – Embracing a Contribution Culture

DrupalCamp DelhiWhile we know there are over 33,000 Drupal developers around the globe, I had no idea how strong Drupal was in India until I was there with Rachel Friesen, scouting locations for a possible DrupaCon Asia. By meeting with the community at camps, meetups, and dinners, we saw first hand how strongly India is innovating with Drupal and contributing back to the Project.

Drupal.org 2015 Advertising Initiatives

I was hired by the Drupal Association in October 2014 to develop a new revenue stream from advertising on Drupal.org. For some time we’ve been trying to diversify revenue streams away from DrupalCon, both to make the Association more sustainable and to ensure that DrupalCons can serve community needs, not just our funding needs. We’ve introduced the Drupal Jobs program already and now, after conversations with the community, we want to put more work into Drupal.org advertising initiatives.
