Welcome to DrupalWelcome to Drupal
First impressions: Watch overviews and tutorials for those new to the community.

Since February 2008, the community has been hard at work on Drupal 7, which is rapidly nearing completion (or possibly already complete ;)). This revolutionary new release sports literally hundreds of improvements, and Angela Byron, the Drupal 7 co-maintainer, will lead you through the most important ones and how they'll impact your future site building endeavors.

Get answers to your frequently asked questions, learn about the changes are coming down the pipe for clients, site builders, designers, and developers, find out more about the core development process, and take away some action items for what you can do to help make Drupal 7 the most awesome release of Drupal yet.

(Note to track chairs: I'm having some trouble deciding on a proper track for this session. It's basically just a bunch of overview info; there will be very little deep-dive into code at all, so "Under the Hood" feels wrong... but yet there also won't really be any tutorial aspect to it, so "Welcome to Drupal" also feels wrong. I picked "Welcome to Drupal" for now, but feel free to move around as you see fit.)

Experience: Beginner, Intermediate
Industry: education, entertainment, library, marketing, media, non-profit

I am listed to attend this event, but it's not showing up in my schedule! Hope I don't forget!
