The 2011 European DrupalCon will be held in London (tbc).
A proposal to hold DrupalCon 2011 in London was put together by the DrupalCon UK team, a group of volunteers with a long history of involvement in the Drupal community. The European DrupalCon Selection Task Force recommended the London proposal, and we are now waiting for final approval from the Drupal Association. All of which can be summarised as we are pretty sure DrupalCon will be held in London next year, but we still need final confirmation.
This group is being used by the local community to collaborate on working towards making a UK DrupalCon the best DrupalCon we've ever had. The DrupalCon UK team is managing the event localy, and will co-ordinate the efforts of the community here.
Are you a Drupal developer, themer, designer, documentation writer, or project planner?
If so you are invited to participate in November's Drupal Drop In Sprint - a monthly event enabling the community to gather together and work face to face on Drupal core, contrib modules, and handbook documentation.
Last month we had 40 people attending and we got 20 commits into core, lets see how much we can get into Drupal 8 before December's feature freeze!
Open Source Training will be presenting 'Absolute Beginners Guide to Drupal' at DrupalCon London pre-conference training day. They will even support you for 6 months after the course as you go on your Drupal learning curve.
Koumbit Networks have sponsored the Aegir 1.0 release and will be sharing their wealth of expertise at their full-day training session at DrupalCon London pre-conference training.The Aegir Hosting System is a scalable solution for deploying and managing Drupal sites.
