DrupalCon Munich: Plans and Goals

17 August 2012

I'm packing up to get on a plane for Munich -- for the second time in the last year, in fact. Really anticipating a great week. Munich is a great city, and Drupal events are full of great people.

Before I leave, I thought I'd note some of my personal and professional goals for the week. Merit badges may be awarded for folks who help me hit these goals.

Professional goals

Sunday

We're having a Palantir.net planning day, finding ways to increase the awesome. I can't reveal too many details, but I can tell you to watch our Team page for new job postings.

Monday

Meeting with the fantastic Nicole Lind and doing a walkthrough of our session Migrating to Drupal: Who? What? Why? and How?. After that, I'll be looking for sprints and other events to kickoff the week.

Tuesday

Busy day for me. Starting with Environment America: Running 60 affiliates on Drupal at 14:15 (in the Barcelona room -- ironically, this is similar to a presentation I did at DrupalCon Barcelona.

Later in the day, we're having a Future of Node/Entity Access BoF to work our details of how access controls should change for Drupal 8 and beyond.

Wednesday

Migrating to Drupal: Who? What? Why? and How? is at 10:45 in the Atlanta room. This talk combines the perspectives of a veteran project manager (Nicole Lind from Phase2) with a Drupal developer (and core contributor). It's a non-technical talk about aligning your team to get your move to Drupal done right.

Thursday

Hey! It's my last night in Munich and I have no obligations! Looking forward to the Fabien Potencier keynote and my roommate (for the week) Larry Garfield's Multi-headed Drupal talk, which is a more technical look at some of the topics from my Environment American session.

Personal goals

While there's a lot of work to be done in the conference proper, I also want to set aside some time to tackle a few personal goals.

Sounds like fun to me. See everyone soon.
