Every spring, anticipation builds in the Drupal community. DrupalCon — the official conference for the Drupal community to participate in learning sessions, talks, code sprints, and social events — is around the corner. While several “Cons” are held internationally, this marked my first experience at the event, held this year in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Kicking-off sessions was Drupal’s founder and Acquia CTO, Dries Buytaert. The opening keynote was well-attended and furiously tweeted with the affectionate #DriesNote as excited developers, product owners, and sellers-of-open-source anxiously awaited Dries’ SOD (state of Drupal) speech.
