Thursday Keynote with Joe Shindelar

We're looking forward to  our community keynote in Vienna, and here's why.

Joe Shindelar is a developer, artist, and snowboarding enthusiast who has been building Drupal sites and participating in Drupal core development since 2006. Joe is also very active in the Drupal issue queues where he has helped to develop and improve Drupal's image handling and manipulation features, contextual links, and various other bits and pieces.

Learn from Joe’s keynote, Everyone Has Something to Share, as he reflects on 10 years of engagement with the community - the successes and the failures. Learn to help others discover what they have to share, and the benefits to everyone of doing so. Sharing is important because it:

  • Creates diversity, both of thought and culture

  • Builds people up, helps them realize their potential, and enriches our community

  • Fosters connections, and makes you, as an individual, smarter

  • Creates opportunities for yourself and others

  • Feels all warm and fuzzy

Wondering how Joe’s session turned into a community keynote? Well, here is how: It was submitted as a regular session, but it rose to the top as an overarching message that the selection committee felt everyone would benefit from hearing. The track team agreed that making it a community keynote was a great way to share the message with the entire audience in Vienna.

We hope to see you at the community keynote, 27 September, 9:00 to 10:15 in Room Strauss.
