Wow! What a great 4 days (including our training day) We’re minutes away from the closing session for DrupalCon London 2011.
Unlike most conferences, the room is still really full – a testimony to the rabid following most Drupalers bring to a DrupalCon.
They are talking about Drupalcon Denver 2012 (March). The focus will be on collaborative design for mobile (should be amazing). It will be at the Colorado Convention Center – a gorgeous facility.
AND of course – skiing and snowboarding packages will be available… and plenty of pub crawls…
The next European DrupalCon will be August 20-23, 2012 in Munich, Germany.
Very active Drupal Community – every major city has a Drupal meet up.
The Westin Grand will be the venue. Built for the 1972 Olympic Games… renovated 2 years ago. (pics of rooms on the screen – really nice… definitely going eh!)
