What you’ll gain

  • An chance to share with and learn from others implementing Drupal in universities and colleges

Come prepared to share

Come prepared to share your experience using Drupal and other Open Source software within the context of Higher Education. Have you built something with Drupal that you’re proud of, started a user group on your campus, or figured out the best way to push out security updates to hundreds of department sites at once? This is a great chance to share your awesome projects and lessons learned with peers, and learn a few new tricks while you’re at it.

If you’re running up against a challenge with your own implementation, there’s a good chance that others are encountering similar issues. Breakout discussions are a great opportunity to meet others, share advice, and combine our collective knowledge to solve hard problems.
