Calls in the middle of the night! Industry leaders discuss best practices in global delivery.


Hello! I'm a long time Drupalist and community member.  I now run Acquia's India operations.

This panel is meant for developers, architects, managers and executives working with global teams or planning to. 
Drupal has gone global in a huge way.  Whatever your opinion on offshore / outsource / near-shore, etc it is a reality that is here and growing.  A few examples:
  • 600+ participants at DrupalCamps Delhi and Mumbai, 75+ code sprint participants
  • IT giants like Wipro, Sapient, TCS, CapGemini, Cognizant, Accenture and Mindtree all have significant Drupal teams (50+).
  • Companies like Intel, Time Inc and Verizon have their own Indian Drupal delivery teams
  • And of course... DrupalCon Asia is in India next year.
An amazing panel!
We've got an awesome panel of leaders from enterprises using Drupal in transformative ways to discuss their experiences building global teams and predictions for the future.
  • Erynn Peterson (Time Inc) - SVP Audience Products and Editorial Tools
