Reflecting on DrupalCon Denver

I saw a Tweet on Monday that nicely summed up the start to my week:The only thing worse than a Monday is a Monday after #DrupalCon. I’m not sure I’ve quoted it exactly, but I’m sure I’ve captured the sentiment. My Monday wasn’t bad as in 3-day-hangover bad, it was just bad in that it…

Going to DrupalCon!

I found out this morning that I get to go to DrupalCon SF! This will be my first Drupal conference…and I’m wondering about a few things: Are you going? I’d like to meet folks…especially if it’s over a beer. 🙂 Is there an inside scoop on Drupal conferences? Are they like most conferences, or should I keep my eyes open for…
