Drupal For Enterprise (August 2008, London)

Robert Castelo's picture

Thank you to everyone who came to Drupal For Enterprise yesterday, about 90 people attended, almost a full house, and it turned out to be a very interesting and diverse audience.

Thank you also to all the presenters, specially Robert Douglass who had the tough gig of giving his talk to a camera with no way of getting feedback from the audience, well done!

Many thanks to Stewart Townsend, Mark Baker and Ivan Zoratti from Sun and MySQL for being great hosts and supplying us with plenty of pizza and beer to keep us going.

Below are the slides of presentations:

It was great

A massive thank you to all the presenters and to Robert for organising another brilliant event. Also to Peter for the extra presentation he gave after the show. Will be catching up on some of the slides as I get my head around EC2. --- Dee iScene
