DrupalCon Portland is just around the corner, and we're excited to see everyone there. The entire Lullabot team will be in Portland, and we hope you'll stop by our booth (#311) and get to know us. You can also pop around the corner to booth #408 to hang out with the Drupalize.Me folks. We're gearing up for a great sale on annual accounts during the 'con, which you can take advantage of during DrupalCon, even if you're not there.
DrupalCon is more than just a meet-and-greet. It's an amazing opportunity to learn from our peers, from beginner sessions to core conversations, DrupalCon is an event that expects participants to dig in and take part. But, even with an amazing event, learning Drupal doesn't just happen overnight. No matter how much you know about Drupal, there's always PLENTY more to learn. This year, to celebrate and help more people learn Drupal faster, Drupalize.Me is giving you $200 toward an annual membership at Drupalize.Me. The sale starts the week of DrupalCon (that's next week!) and will only last for a limited time. We'll be posting more information about it via our mailing list so make sure you're subscribed to the newsletter, or you can follow Drupalize.Me on Twitter (@drupalizeme) or Facebook.
FREE Community Tools Workshop
In addition to a fun booth, cool stickers, and a nice big sale, we are also stepping up at DrupalCon to help the community get up to speed on Drupal. On the Friday of DrupalCon, May 24th, Drupalize.Me team members will be leading a FREE Community Tools Workshop. This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn how to set up and use a bunch of essential tools. It will also make you able and confident to give back to the Drupal project. You will learn how to use community tools, including IRC, and the Drupal.org issue queue, along with getting your own local environment set up with a web server and Git. If you can't make the trek to Portland, you can still participate remotely in the Friday sprints with other people hacking on Drupal, and we will be freely sharing the resources and curriculum we use for the workshop, so you can walk through it yourself at home.
We really hope to see you there. We're looking forward to a fun-filled week!
