Next week Drupalers from all around the world we be descending on the beautiful city of New Orleans for DrupalCon 2016 - and myDropWizard will be there too!

If you've never been to a DrupalCon - you're missing out. It's an opportunity to meet the Drupal people you know virtually, be surrounded by a dizzying amount of Drupal knowledge, and get inspired and excited for the future of Drupal. Watching the videos is great, but I'd argue that you can learn more by asking someone in the hallway or attending a sprint.

Anyway, there's lots of great articles about why you should attend DrupalCon - I'm not going to attempt to rehash that all here. :-)

But if you're coming, I am going to try and encourage you to connect with myDropWizard while you're at DrupalCon New Orleans!

Both myself (David Snopek) and myDropWizard co-founder, Elliot Christenson, will be there. If you're interested in ...

... then come and find us!

Where we'll be and when

  • The Business Summit on Monday, May 9th: Elliot will be attending the Business Summit where business leaders (both beginning and established) will be sharing their experiences and knowledge. If you run a Drupal business, I'd recommend getting a ticket before they sell out!
  • The sprint room on Monday and Friday (May 9th & 13th): David will be rocking the sprint room on Monday, and both Elliot & David will be sprinting on Friday. If you're attending the sprints you can sign-up on this spreadsheet. We'll probably be working on the Panopoly distribution and Panels in Drupal 8.
  • Our booth on Tuesday, May 10th: We sponsored DrupalCon this year and will have a booth on the convention room floor on Tuesday. Stop by and say "hello!"
  • The "D8 Module Acceration Program" session  on Tuesday, May 10th: David will be on panel!
  • The "Providing killer Drupal Support" BoF on Wednesday, May 11th: We scheduled a BoF to discuss Drupal support with other people and organizations supporting Drupal.

Schedule a one-on-one meeting

But if you want to be double extra sure that you'll be able to chat with us, schedule a one-on-one meeting with us!

Using Doodle, you can see when we have free time and request a meeting:

The user interface is a little confusing, so just in case you're having problems, this is the process:

  1. Click on May 9th (or any date in the week of DrupalCon) in the mini-calendar
  2. You should now see the week of DrupalCon!
  3. Find a free time, click the calendar and "resize" the block to fit the time you want to meet
  4. Fill in the "Meeting request for" field with a short description of what you want to talk about (it could just be "Connect during DrupalCon" - that's fine)
  5. And click the "Create a meeting request" button

Or if you don't want to mess with Doodle, you can just send us an e-mail at [email protected].

Can't wait to see you there!

We're super friendly, non-imposing people who love Drupal and the Drupal community. :-) Please connect with us at DrupalCon if you have the time!
