During the code4lib conference in February 11-14 in Chicago there will be a drupal4lib conference too. Let me break down that sentence for you.
isn’t entirely about code or libraries. It is a volunteer-driven collective of hackers, designers, architects, curators, catalogers, artists and instigators from around the world, who largely work for and with libraries, archives and museums on technology “stuff.”
This will be a full day of self-selected barcamp style sessions. Anyone who wants to present can write down the topic on an index card and, after the keynote, we will vote to choose what we want to see. Attendees can also pick a topic and attempt to talk someone else into presenting on it.
If we run out of topics, we will pay homage to the project by testing patches for Drupal 8. It is easy, and we will show you how to do this invaluable task.
This event is open to the library community. There is a nominal fee ($10) for non-Code4LibCon attendees.
Local Drupal uber-ninja Larry Garfield will stop by to answer questions and give us some guidance.
