Upcoming: Texas Linux Fest and DrupalCon San Francisco

It’s that time of the month again.  Ok, not *that* time.  Like I would blog about that…  Eiw.

It’s (almost) time for me to go to some more conferences!  SCaLE was February, SXSWi was March, and April is all about Texas Linux Fest and DrupalCon.

If you’re in or around Austin on April 10, come to Texas Linux Fest to see me talk about wrangling internets for Linux Journal in my talk The One Woman Web Team, which will be quite similar to the talk I gave at SCaLE.  You can also hear some other kick-ass speakers, and talk to Mark and Carlie at the Linux Journal booth.

DrupalCon San Francisco badgeOn the other hand, if you use Drupal, you MUST go to DrupalCon.  You should also go to Do It With Drupal, but since they haven’t announced 2010 dates, I’ll leave that for another time. :)  This year’s US DrupalCon is going to be HUGE.  I can’t emphasize that enough.  In fact, go read my post about it over at Linux JournalHUGE.  Think MacWorld keynote huge.  Moscone huge.

The Drupal community’s biannual conference, held April 19-21, 2010, at San Francisco’s Moscone Center will be by far the largest DrupalCon held to date. With 2430 attendees currently registered, and a little more than two more weeks to go, the event is likely to hit 3000 attendees. Truth be told, I’m a little overwhelmed.

Ok, so it’s not SXSWi huge (thank god), but you get the idea.

I recently spoke with John Faber of AF83 and SFDUG, who is heading marketing efforts for this spring’s DrupalCon, and he pointed out to me that there were more sessions submitted to this event than there were attendees for the first two DrupalCons. The smallest of the conference rooms will hold 300 people.

Fun bit of triva.  Makes me wish I attended some of the early ones. *sigh* I’ll always have Paris

See you there?

    DrupalCon has grown so incredibly over the past few years. Kudos to the organizers for getting as far as they have with it — I know it’s organized rather organically so it’s amazing to me it manages to happen at all each year, let alone so successfully.
