Great news! On Thursday evening, the Drupal Association board chose Paris to host the next European Drupalcon.
First of all we want to congratulate the teams from the other two candidate cities, Maastricht and Cologne. We know they worked hard, spent a lot of energy and did a great job. We're looking forward to working with you all — your help and experience will be more than welcome...
Paris is a good city for open source software, a great city for Drupal and, frankly, a fantastic place to visit. The community here has become increasingly active over the past two years and is excited to host enthusiastic Drupalers from around the world.
We want the conference to be attractive to as many Drupalers as possible. This is why the conference will feature tracks for coders, designers, site builders and students as well as companies and entrepreneurs thinking about using Drupal.
Novices and hard-core Drupalers alike are invited to share their common passion by participating in a day-long code and documentation sprint following the conference.
There will be sessions for all levels of Drupal users from beginners to seasoned pros.
There will be activities for significant others and significant little ones.
There will be business meetings and job opportunities.
There will be wine.
We need your help — Please join the effort
We want to thank everyone who supported the Parisian proposal and call upon all our friends in the Drupal community to join us in making this the most successful Drupalcon yet. Here’s what you can do:
