I didn't get to contribute much to Drupal 6 before it happened. I was still learning how to use the toolset the Drupal community uses for these things, and after one successful attempt to contribute to core, I decided to focus my attention on contrib for a while. It's been more than a year since that time (probably closer to two) and I'm much more comfortable and familiar with these tools, as well as having a much better idea of what it is that Drupal is "all about".
The Worx Company is a Silver Sponsor at Drupalcon DC! We are excited to be sponsoring what looks to be a fantastic Drupalcon. Of course, with the sponsorship, our attendance at Drupalcon has been confirmed - I will be attending, along with Kris, Kurt (President of our company), and maybe Sue (CEO).
