Drupalcon 2011 Europe Comes To London

Drupalcon London

Drupalcon 2011 Europe is coming to London in August and we can't wait. The week of the 22nd August sees all things Drupal, code sprints, Drupal theming, modules, parties! heading to Croydon in South London.

It couldn't be easier for us as we're just a short drive, with the top down, to the venue. There's going to be plenty of opportunities to meet some key players in the market and discuss Drupal all day long. My girlfriend will be happy to have a break from Drupal this, Drupal that talk!

Keynotes

Tuesday 23rd August sees the opening keynote from Dries Buytaert, the original creator of Drupal. Day 2 opens with Tom Standage author and digital editor of the Economist followed on day 3 by The Stanardistas, Christopher Murphy and Nicklas Persson.
