The first day of Drupalcon Szeged is underway, and what a day it's been. We've already heard from Dries Buytaert about the current State of Drupal, and the future of Drupal, and now I have the pleasure of listening to Rasmus Lerdorf, the creator of the PHP programming language. It's opportunities like these that really make Drupalcon (and Drupal in general) such an amazing experience that would simply be impossible with a closed source solution.
Well, it's that time again, when all the Drupal developers do their best to get together in one location and discuss the future of the platform and the web surrounding it. This time we'll be gathering in semi-rural Hungary... the city of Szeged. I've not had the pleasure of visiting ANY portion of Europe yet, so the wife and I will be taking some extra time both before the convention and afterwards to see the sites of Budapest and Vienna. I'm very excited.
Well, it's official, The Worx Company is going to be at Drupalcon Hungary! I personally am incredibly stoked to be going (if you can't tell by the exclamation point) and best of all, my wife is coming to expand her Drupal knowledge as well. As a Drupal-centric shop, we deal with the software every single day, but Drupal is expansive, so any chance we have to learn more we always try to jump at.
Taking a dive into developing modules for Drupal isn't as scary as it seems. If you want to contribute a module to Drupal, read about our not-so-horrible experience.
Well Drupalcon was absolutely amazing. This being my first Drupalcon I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but getting together with "digital friends" is something I've done before so it wasn't entirely foreign. We learned about some amazing new technologies, not the least of which is RDF, but more on that later.
