The first European Drupal Developer Days conference will take place on Saturday and Sunday February 5th & 6th, 2011, at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Brussels, Belgium. This two day event will be preceded by a code sprint on Friday the 4th.

The event will take place in parallel with the 2011 edition of Europe's largest open source gathering, FOSDEM. The Campus Etterbeek of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is located at a 15 minute walk or a 7 minute tram ride from the FOSDEM location, so that attendees can sample the best sessions from both events.

During the Drupal Developer Days you can expect sessions, ad-hoc meetings, code sprints and practical workshops about the latest developments within the Drupal ecosystem.

The Drupal Developer Days in Brussels are targeted at Drupal developers with varying skillsets: from beginners, who cannot distinguish a hook from a hack, to seasoned 100+ patches core contributors. However the sessions will be exclusively focussed around technical topics.

Registration for the event will open very soon. A call to submit sessions will be launched after that. The organising Belgian Drupal community hopes to welcome around 400 enthousiast Drupal developers in Brussels next February.

The event is hosted by the department MOSI of the VUB. MOSI teaches and researches in the areas of Mathematics, Operational research, Statistics and Information systems, applied in human sciences.
