Building and Engaging the Drupal Community

The Drupal Community track will be used for discussing and presenting ways to continue to grow the Drupal Community. As the community grows, we are continually faced with the issue on how to keep the communications open and helpful to as many members as possible.

Angie Byron is a community role model. Her dedication to the Drupal community and excitement about the project is truly unprecedented. She's the Drupal 7 co-maintainer, co-author of the O'Reily book, Using Drupal, a Drupal Association board member, and currently works for Acquia as the Director of Community where her primary duty is to help the Drupal project and community grow. Angie has presented at camps and cons across the world and we are thrilled that she'll be speaking in Denver.

Johan Falk is a Drupal trainer and a frantic producer of screencasts for site builders. His passion lies in making Drupal modules work well together and showing others how it can be done. His book Drupal 7 – the Essentials is being donated to the Drupal community as a starting platform for new documentation. We're honored to have Johan speak at DrupalCon Denver!

There's already quite a few sessions proposed in the Community track, but we're always looking for more! How do we attract new contributors? How do we keep the old contributors interested and engaged? What's the best way of presenting the community information to the members of the community? Answer some of these questions or come up with your own to present at DrupalCon Denver. Submit your session proposal by October 26th!
