What is the Business Summit?

For a new twist on our keynotes, we are excited that our Thursday mainstage will highlight two community speakers that both have important and intersting topics that all Drupalers can benefit from hearing.  

On Monday, we will hold a community kickoff event for the week. Our goal is to help you make personal connections with the people that can help sustain your work and to set up all the conversations that you will have for the rest of the week. Attending the kickoff will allow you to form a strong base for your community conversations throughout the week and help set the agenda for the community. Here's our rough schedule for the day:

Belgium born Drupal founder, Dries Buytaert is a pioneer in the open source web publishing and collaboration platform space.

This course is for people wanting to know how to build a theme for Drupal 8. Starting with the installation of a fresh Drupal 8 site, we will make a copy of the Bartik default theme and then build on top of that. We will see how TWIG works by implementing some template files and add our own library in order to declare new CSS and JS files. Breakpoints, preprocessing and base theme will be covered as well as config files so that the theme could have its own responsive image styles. We will add a jQuery library to our theme in order to use it through template files.

DevOps is a movement to make teams as efficient as possible through an emphasis on Culture, Automation, Measurement and Sharing. This training provides a crash course on optimizing your workflow, using techniques refined over years of professional Drupal work. We share our preferred development setup (including a Vagrant project we will use to build a copy of our environment), show you how to automate tests, deployments, and other tasks with Jenkins, demonstrate best practices, and work with you in small break-out groups to improve your own setup and workflow.

To help ease newcomers into DrupalCon, we've put together an orientation designed to explain all DrupalCon's many moving parts and introduce you to a new friend or two. We think starting out the week with a buddy makes networking and navigating an unfamiliar event so much easier!

The event is short, so please be on time. We'll end at the Opening Reception where you can put your new DrupalCon knowledge to work.

Hope to see you there!

A DrupalCon institution, Robert and jam's opening "Prenote" has been getting people out of bed early and excited about DrupalCon since 2010. What's not to like about an infotainment extravaganza featuring Drupal community stars and friends; music and sing-a-longs; bad jokes; technical tutorials on Git, yodelling, use of the alphabet, or proper beer pouring technique? Especially eye-opening if you've never been to DrupalCon or never gotten up early enough to see one of these yet.

Drop by and pick-up your badge and tote bag and then grab a photo with Dries!

Come collaborate in person with hundreds of other Drupal community members!

Well now it's your chance for you and your crack team of 4 buddies to prove it.

In the grand tradition of pub quizzes, there will be 6 rounds of 10 questions covering everything about Drupal, and a few more about general web topics. Your team will compete with the best of Drupal brains to capture the title of Drupal trivia champions. We'll have small prizes to keep things interesting.

Of course, you'll have to know it all in your head - strictly no use of mobile devices or laptops etc. allowed!
