Up until this last weekend I did not have any plans to go to Drupalcon. For various reasons I didn't take seriously Kieran's mention of sponsors (partly because I've never done it before, partly because work and family have me a little overwhelmed at the moment). Well he did something about it and got my conference fee taken care of and a place for me to stay (I will be thanking these folks in a later post). I am arranging my flight now and will try that chip in thing he told me about to help mitigate my credit card on that and I should be good to go.
I have two presentations I have proposed.
- The first is on documentation . Where we are, how we got here, things that we've tried and what people can do to help.
- The other is on revisiting the current drupal.org forum structure. Over the years we've evolved a new way to collaborate with the groups site but that is not always obvious to the new comers. Also, other forums have developed some differing practices that we can leverage to mitigate culture shock and present resources to new folks.
Should be fun.
Also finally added a Drupalcon tag to my site.
