From our friends at Wunder Group:
Every organization has various experts for different subject matters. Together these experts can create great things. As the saying goes “the whole is more than the sum of its parts”, which means there is more value generated when those experts work together, than from what they would individually produce. This however, is easier said than done.
Sponsors make DrupalCon one of the most affordable technology conferences around. Find out what opportunities are available for your company.
The call for papers and training proposals is open with a fresh set of session tracks and different session length options too. Time to submit!
The process for applying for a DrupalCon Europe license is detailed here.
