Community and Connection
DrupalCon represents the perfect opportunity for all members of the community to come together and celebrate our collective achievement. Aside from a schedule packed with amazing sessions given by experts in the field, DrupalCon presents an opportunity to come together as a community and reaffirm our connections. There will be great parties and countless opportunities to make connections with other community members.
Government Summit – Monday
I will be participating in a panel on Drupal 8 to discuss my contributed Drupal 8 work and my passion for serving the needs of our government clients. I would love to connect with you. I’ll be handing out my own personal “nerdstein” stickers and promise to gather countless selfies with community members.
Session: ‘Conquering Imposter Syndrome in the Open Source Community’
Heather Rodriguez will be co-presenting on Imposter Syndrome with Sarah Thrasher and Kat Kuhl on Tuesday at 3:45 p.m. in Room 425). When you’re new to any field, particularly a rapidly evolving, ever-changing one, it’s normal to experience feelings of inadequacy or self-doubt. Heather will present ideas on how members can overcome these struggles and get the support they need to thrive in the community. Catch up with Heather and share your thoughts on her session.
DrupalCon is an event where anyone can learn to use Drupal to make the internet a better place. And you won’t have to wait until DrupalCon is over to use what you learn. Put your ideas to work right away at sprints. (Tip: you don’t have to be a developer, or have ever joined a sprint before.) I will be working on my projects and can be available to assist others in core or contrib if needed.
