DrupalCon San Francisco 2010 - World Class City, World Class Conference http://sf2010.drupal.org/community/news/feed en Community, Culture, and Contributions http://sf2010.drupal.org/community/news/drupalcon-sf-closing-thanks <p>The last year has been an amazing experience for the San Francisco Drupal community and we would like to thank everyone for coming to DrupalCon SF. It was a pretty amazing thing to bring 3,000 people together for a Drupal event in San Francisco and it was magical to see Drupalcon grow while still maintaining our unique culture. In the final analysis, I think it is the Drupal community more than anything else that makes Drupal great and I think Drupalcon plays a big role in promoting and building that culture.</p> <p>A big thanks to everyone who helped make the event a success and check out the <a href="http://sf2010.drupal.org/community/news/drupalcon-sf-closing-thanks">closing session</a> for a full list of everyone who helped and a "by the numbers" view of the conference.
