OSCon 2010 Thanks

Before this summer rapidly turns to fall, I’d like to take a chance to say thanks to all of the sponsors and people that made OSCon 2010 so amazing! Thanks to our sponsors we were able to get an eye-catching and eco-friendly display, great Drupal documentation, and some very popular buttons. To see how everything looked checkout the pics.

Thanks to all of the great volunteers who came out to answer questions and demo Drupal 7. The best representation of Drupal is the amazing people behind it and you all did an awesome job! To my great surprise we ran out of “Don’t hack core” buttons first, proving that Drupal’s popularity is on the rise, and that OSCon is a good place to find developers. As for those who had never heard of Drupal, they were often amazed at it’s versatility, and the upcoming features in Drupal 7.
Overall we learned a lot to use in promoting Drupal in the future, and are looking forward to re-using the booth kit to promote Drupal as often and in as many places as possible. The more people who know about Drupal the more opportunities people have to improve their websites, and possibly their lives. Thanks again to all of the amazing people who helped to promote Drupal at OSCon, and made the Drupal booth rock! - sarah_p

The Drupal booth needs your help

OSCon 2010 is right around the corner and the Drupal community will be there representing the CMS that we have all come to know and love. A presence at major open source conventions is an important part of growing Drupal and it’s commercial ecosystem. We already have a number of amazing volunteers, however we could still use sponsorships and donations to help cover the costs of furnishing and equipping a booth. Without donations we will have no electricity to run a laptop for demonstrations, and no Internet connectivity to show off famous Drupal sites. We’re also trying to raise enough money to cover the cost of a professional, eco-friendly trade show display featuring the new Drupal wordmark. Any donations are helpful, and while we are grateful for volunteers, we want to give them the best tools for presenting and sharing Drupal with the OSCon attendees.

Many have asked if the Drupal Association will be providing funding for the booth and they have provided assistance where possible to make connections using their contacts and general guidance. The amount we’ve listed conveys the amount of money still needed to complete the plans we’re shared. Please visit our website and make a donation if you can, with only a few hundred dollars we can have the basics covered and do our best to represent Drupal as the strong CMS it is. If you have questions, use the contact form on the site and we'll get back to you within 24hours. Thanks for making Drupal awesome, and sharing it with the world!
