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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
