Ready to fly: DrupalCon SF

DrupalCon San Francisco will mark my first time traveling with a rolling carry-on instead of the duffel I've brought to every conference / camp since Barcelona. It's a good thing, because Packt was kind enough to send along several copies of their new Ubercart book for me to give away in the Commerce Guys Ubercart Training. I look forward to shedding those pounds on Sunday and replacing them with some sweet new Drupal shirts throughout the week.

Assuming the rest of the team makes it through the volcanic ash, I'm also looking forward to getting on stage in the Sponsor Theater (E. Mezzanine, 236-238) to talk about the latest news with Commerce Guys. Our sponsorship affords us the opportunity to bring together the whole crew for the first time to talk about our vision for the future of e-commerce on Drupal and how we're working to make it a reality. Mark the time in your schedule - Tuesday, 9:45 - 10:45 AM - or stop by the Commerce Guys booth to get the skinny in person / express your interest in relocating to Jackson, MI...

I'll be unveiling the Drupal Commerce demo site during our sponsor spotlight and will discuss it in further detail in my session, From Ubercart to Drupal Commerce. The session will be on Wednesday, 9:45 - 10:45 AM in room 306 Trellon. We had a great crowd in Portland show up to see / hear the latest last week, and I look forward to delivering a slightly more organized presentation in San Francisco.

I'm looking forward to a lot of great sessions, too, and I can't wait to meet up with some old Drupal friends and new contributors to Drupal Commerce. If you're eager to meet up, leave me a note in the comments or use my contact form. I'm happy to hook up for dinner or find you around the venue, and you can always stop by the Commerce Guys table to get in touch.

E-commerce will be huge on Drupal 7, and DrupalCon will be the kick-off. We'll be following up with Drupal Commerce presentations at the CMS Expo in early May, Web Content 2010 in early June, and hopefully a Drupal Camp or two in June / July. But first... I have to survive this next week.

LOL!

"DrupalCon San Francisco will mark my first time traveling"

Yes, Ryan, tell us how it is in the future, if you manage to come back. =P

Seriously, though... They have these big metal tubes with long flat arms on the sides that magically float through the air when they move fast enough. The future is insane. Tongue
