The DrupalCon Rush - part 1

on Fri, 03/16/2012 - 4:41pm

As you can imagine, it's a beehive of activity here at Gotham City Drupal, as we prepare for DrupalCon 2012 in Denver, which starts this weekend. One thing I had put off for too long was getting a new round of business cards printed, and so you can imagine my dismay when I realized I had three (3!) days to go before I left and had "forgotten" to get them done.

Fortunately, one of our beloved clients, Jason Kessler of Tussle, came to the rescue, with a local (NYC) recommendation:

Paper Slam, Inc.

It's Thursday night at DrupalCon Chicago, Code Sprint tomorrow!

This DrupalCon is really awesome in many respects. One thing that's a little hard to take is some of the "slicker" aspects. For instance, I absolutely HATED the super-slick keynote feel-good slideshows - and I hated the MUSIC even more I do really like the Expo in general, because I really enjoy meeting folks who are collectively doing great stuff with Drupal. My favorite booth by far was the Workhabit booth. On Tuesday it was pretty much similar to everyone else's booth.

DrupalCon Chicago Roundup
