DrupalCon São Paulo Updates and Call for Session Proposals

Olá!  Join Drupal project founder Dries Buytaert and core committer Angie Byron this December 6-8 in beautiful Brazil to bring a little Carnaval to Drupal. DrupalCon São Paulo will focus primarily on content for Drupal developers, but there will of course be plenty to offer for designers, themers, project managers, architects, engineers, and those involved with the business side of Drupal. The multi-lingual conference program will feature a sessions in English, Portuguese and Spanish, as well as plenty of opportunities for informal “Birds of a Feather” meetings and a coder lounge that will be open throughout the conference. 

Dries Buytaert

Small and intimate, we expect DrupalCon São Paulo to capture the feel of early DrupalCons. Our goal is to make it easier for attendees to meet the people that are deeply involved in the Drupal community and find out how to become involved themselves.

Sprinters wanted!

DrupalCon São Paulo immediately follows the Drupal 8 feature freeze deadline. There will be a hosted sprint focused on getting D8 features polished for core. Lead by Angie Byron and other key core contributors, this will be a dedicated day for crafting code, preparing APIs and tidying the documentation. There will be plenty for everyone to do, and it’s a great time to get involved to help make D8 the best version of Drupal yet. All hands on deck!
