Austin Instant Replay

This is my fifth DrupalCon monitoring session submissions. My fifth time nervously counting the submissions as they come rolling in, first at a trickle, maybe 20 in a week. Then stagnation, followed by a bit of a panic - did we remember to tell people??

And then suddenly, the week sessions close, the sessions come pouring in like a flood. In just this last week, submissions increased nearly 400%.

3 simple tips to getting your session selected

The call for sessions closes tomorrow at midnight, and chances are you still haven't decided whether or not you'll make the leap and submit your talk. You've presented at local camps, and watched the videos from past DrupalCons, maybe you've even thought, "I could do that!".

Well, what's stopping you?

We expect to have over 130 speakers present this year, and believe it or not, you could be one of them.

Do we have your attention? Good - now let's get started!

DrupalCon Austin Call for Case Studies

Dear Drupal World, we are excited to offer you a new track for DrupalCon this year, it's name, Case Studies. This is the artist formerly known as the Higher Ed, Non-Profit, and Government Track. We think that boiling this track down to the heart of the matter -- case studies-- is a smart move that also opens up submissions from media and corporate projects.

Please consider submitting a case study before the deadline of March 7th!!

So, you want to train at DrupalCon

Prior to each conference, trainers submit proposals and the training selection team, a global and local track chair, work with the Program Coordinator to select the trainings that will be offered. Many top-quality proposals aren’t selected, simply because there are more potentials submitted than can be offered. To make the path to training more clear, here are some insights into the selection process and how to best present your training for consideration.
