DrupalCon D.C. 2009 Day 1
Sitting here at a friends house kicking it after getting back from post day 1 social event for DrupalCon D.C. and thinking "wow!" today was rocking. I caught up with some old friends, met a whole bunch of new friends, and definitely had a full day of geekery.
Lots of highlights but here are some of the notable ones:
Sacha Chua totally enlighted me on how to accent my slacker ability in the session Totally Rocking Your Drupal Environment. Not only are her and the audiences suggestions going to make me even lazier, they might make actually make a competent developer of me as well. You should definetely check out AEgir for managing large number of Drupal clients and Drupal for Firebug (two new things to me)!
Then we had the amp'd talk Drupal 7: What's Done, What's Coming, and How You Can Help w/Angie Byron. I have seen some video's with Angie and man is she just as entertaining in person talking about how Drupal is a "do-ocracy", the new features coming up, and how I need to get all my sites upgraded to Drupal 6 by first quarter 2010 :)
After that I headed over to Business Analytics with Views w/Frank Febbraro and Irakli Nadareishvili. This was a quick demo of the new Views Group By and Charts and Graphs modules.
Finally, I got new schooled by a 13 year old presenter and old schooled by a 40 year old in Install Profiles w/Dmitri Gaskin and Hagen Graf.
Some other modules there was talk about you might find interesting:
More tomorrow about day 2 I promise... time for sleep :)
