jQuery Conference 2010: San Francisco Bay Area Announced

POSTED BY Greg Knaddison on March 25, 2010

Guess what everybody? It's time to consider extending your hotel stay so that you can stick around after Drupalcon 2010 for the jQuery Conference being held April 24th and 25th - the weekend right after Drupalcon.

Ever since Drupal 5 the jQuery library has been included in Drupal core and we've been loving it. It makes working with Javascript fun, again.

Registration is currently scheduled to open on Wednesday, March 17th; tickets will be priced at $199. In addition to General Admission tickets, we’re offering a limited number of discounted student tickets priced at $99, with a valid student ID.
Watch the jQuery blog or jQuery Twitter feed for notification when registration opens.

Much like Drupalcon San Francisco, the jQuery conference will start with a day of training provided by appendTo. Training will be at a different venue, costs $299, and all proceeds will go to the jQuery project.

The training and conference together provide great opportunities to boost your jQuery skills which are, of course, directly applicable to working with Javascript in Drupal.

Customize Your Schedule: Sign Up for Sessions!

POSTED BY Blake Lucchesi on March 18, 2010

Plan your DrupalCon adventure by picking the sessions you want to attend!

Because DrupalCon is such a large event, and the time flies by so fast, I always recommend you put together a list of the sessions you really want to go to and keep it handy. You can start doing this now by going to the session schedule and adding sessions to your personal schedule. By signing up you'll be able to see what sessions are on what day and at what time, and come to the unfortunate realization that you can't be in three places at once.

To view and print your personal schedule log in to your DrupalCon account and click on My Account and then click on My Schedule.

DrupalCon SF Sessions Chosen. Schedule to be Announced 3/15.

POSTED BY Jen Lampton on March 6, 2010

Thanks to everyone for providing us with 408 wonderful sessions to choose from! We are busily sending out email confirmations to the speakers, and beginning our process of organizing all the approved sessions into a daily schedule.

We wanted to share a bit about our larger selection process for sessions:

Over 12,000 votes were cast as part of the voting process and we chose the sessions primarily based on votes received, with some balancing considerations for similar proposals, speakers who proposed multiple sessions, and our topic specific tracks. Sessions were chosen by our conference programming committee, and reviewed by our 6 track committees. Special thanks to the 21 people who helped in our selection process.

We are currently assembling the schedule and will be announcing the full conference program on March 15, 2010.

Last day for DrupalCon SF session voting

POSTED BY John Albin Wilkins on March 1, 2010

We received over 400 session submissions for DrupalCon San Francisco! And we need your help in deciding which of those sessions will be included in the conference program. So, please go review the list of sessions and vote on the ones you’d like to see most.

Voting ends TODAY, Monday, March 1st at 23:59 PST (UTC-0800). Or, for places east of California: voting ends EARLY TOMORROW and you’re probably going to forget so you’d better do it now anyway!

As always, DrupalCon is a community-driven event. We've all shared a vast array of:

  • exciting new ideas,
  • proven recipes for success,
  • case studies,
  • best practices,
  • new solutions to old problems,
  • and other gems of knowledge.

And, if we had time, we'd present them all! But now its time to narrow down the selection. Your opinions are what shapes what happens at DrupalCon. Remember, every vote counts!

Speakers will be notified on March 5th if their sessions have been selected, and the final schedule will be posted on March 15th.
