We all benefit from the thousands of dollars worth of contributions that people make to Drupal's code, infrastructure, and community but it's sometimes hard for companies and individuals to prioritize contributing back. Come and share strategies with long time Drupal community members Michael E. Meyers, Greg Knaddison, and Eric Gunderson as they discuss strategies that work, those that haven't, and the reasons for success or failure. Learn examples of small but important changes to company processes that have turned problematic programs into successful ones. Hear tales of corporate woe about how those "other departments" got in the way of making changes (and strategize ways to solve those). And finally, get the perspective of consultants AND end users of Drupal on figuring out strategies of contribution that can work for you.
