conference

Come join us at FrOSCon in August!

Lots of things changed since I have posted the last "conference entry", most notably that the FrOSCon Drupal paper submission deadlines were extended until the end of this month.

This year, FrOSCon will include a two day Drupal conference with two rooms for Drupal presentations and all day hacking. People like Gerhard Killesreiter, Károly Négyesi (aka chx), Robert Douglass, as well as several Google Summer of Code students will be there. I will do a presentation about the Drupal 6 language improvements, and being a core committer for Drupal 6, I am sure we can chat about important Drupal issues.

I am very grateful for the Drupal Association to sponsor my travel and accommodation costs, which enable me to visit the conference at the first place. Come and meet in Sankt Augustin! Make sure that you submit your session proposal for the Drupal track by July 1st!

FrOSCon CFP closing up, Drupalcon Barcelona (web) registration open!

This year, for the first time, a big two day Drupal event is going to be organized in Sankt Augustin, Germany as part of the FrOSCon 2007 conference (25th-26th August, 2007). Robert Douglass has more to say on this on the dedicated Drupal group, looking for speakers and sponsors for the event. The call for papers deadline of FrOSCon is closing up, you only have one week to propose a session on Drupal (or any other FrOSCon fitting topic) for the conference! Update: The Drupal session submission deadline for FrOSCon was extended to 1st July!

In the meantime, the organizers of Drupalcon Barcelona 2007 (19th-22nd September, 2007) are going forward too. The web registration is already open, which allows you to send a session proposal to the organizers. Although it is not clearly communicated whether the so-called "web registration" actually means a conference attendance registration too. The session description field also sports a limited WYSIWYG editor, which I don't think was a very good idea, but anyway, let those sessions go in! On a related note, Drupalcon Barcelona also has a design contest for the conference logo, which will be printed on t-shirts, name tags, leaflets and so on. This design contest dealine is even closer, only three days left to participate! The design contest deadline was extended until June 10th, and some nice proposals are already in!

Being an organizer of several conferences here in Hungary, I very much appreciate the work that goes into organizing these great events, and I can't wait to be there to meet some Drupal developers I did not meet for some time now (or even not at all)!

Dries' Drupal Conference Hungary presentation video is available

Dries Buytaert in Hungary

We were happy to welcome Dries Buytaert in Hungary at our Drupal conference, around one month ago. We had Marcell Kiss-Tóth helping us with a video camera, and after his hard work with the editing, the conference session videos are now downloadable. You are most probably interested in Dries' presentation, since all other sessions were in Hungarian. The downloadable is very good in audio quality. You can download the video from drupalconf.amon.hu or alternatively from liktor.hu.

As a side note, after the conference, I also decided to publish my Drupal lego figure shots, which were used in my presentation. These are licensed under a Creative Commons license, so you can reuse them in your presentations or build upon them if you wish.
