A Tale of Two DrupalCons

It was the best of shows, it was the worst...no wait. That’s not right. DrupalCon 2014 was just great and there are always new learnings to make it better.

Last year, DrupalCon really hit its stride, especially in Europe. We have already produced one of three great DrupalCons in 2015, so before we get further into the year, I’d like to summarize what happened with DrupalCon in 2014. More posts will come to highlight our 2015 DrupalCon planning so there is more transparency into our team’s work.

What's new on Drupal.org - February 2015

One of our long standing traditions here in the Drupal Association was to give community regular updates on the latest Drupal.org related activities in a form of week notes posts. We’ve been publishing those for over 2.5 years now and it feels like the time has come for a slight change in the format.

From now on we’ll publish monthly ‘What’s new on Drupal.org’ posts, which will showcase new and upcoming features, functionality and user experience improvements. We’ll schedule these around the public Board meetings, so that both the Board and community get the same information at the same time.

So here is our first update in this new format..

Drupal Events at SXSW 2015

SXSW 2015 logoSouth by Southwest Interactive starts this Friday in Austin, Texas. The largest tech conference in the world wouldn’t be complete without Drupal, which is why we’ve assembled a guide to all things Drupal at this year’s SXSW.

If there’s a session, party, or workshop that you think should be included, let us know and we’ll add it to the list. In the meantime, here’s all the best Drupal things at SXSW this year.

Thank you for a great Global Training Day

GTD logoAs many of you know, Global Training Day was this weekend, and it was a great one. We had 29 trainings in 20 countries around the world, showing once again that our community is second to none in passion and enthusiasm.

It's so exciting and humbling to help make GTD a reality. Watching the tweets pour in from around the world is truly awe-inspiring. Here's a selection of a few of our favorites from this year.

Get Ready to Vote: Elections Run 9 March - 20 March

So long, and thanks for all the fish

Stephanie El HajjIt is with a happy and heavy heart that I share with you the next step in my journey. After three great years, I am leaving the Drupal Association and packing up my worldly possessions and heading south to Texas, where I will be joining the awesome Austin team of Amazee Labs.

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?
