From Our Sponsor
Here at Mediacurrent, we’re counting down the days until Drupalcon. This year, we’re proud to be a Platinum sponsor, and we’re bringing our A-game with over a dozen teammates, The Weather Channel Case Study, Power Sessions, Office Hours, an After-party and a ton of other activities. Here are 5 reasons to pay Mediacurrent a visit…
"Do you work at a college, university, or k-12 school? If so, then we invite you to the Drupal in Education Summit to be held at the University of Texas at Austin on June 2, from 9am-4pm (leaving you plenty of time to make the DrupalCon opening reception afterwards)!"
DrupalCon Amsterdam is less than six months away, and we’re swinging into full planning mode. The tracks have been set, and now it’s time for the community to step up: we are now accepting session submissions.
