See you all again in Heidelberg in 2017 - yes we will do it all again - 14 - 16 July 2017 - Save the date and sign in for more details.
Thank you to all Attendees, Speakers & Sponsors, you made the first Drupal Business & Community Days in Heidelberg in 2016!
... yes, those photos of Heidelberg are for real ...
Cristina Chumillas said "you should really schedule it next year" ... so that's what we're doing!
8 - 10 April 2016 With this event, we want to kick-start Drupal Business in Germany and build on our excellent German-speaking and international Community.
For the "Drupal Business and Community Days" we are trying out a different format for the first time, with two separate tracks running parallel:
The Business Days are on Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning - in Heidelberg, this will be an opportunity for the German-speaking Drupal Business Community to get together, and work on strategies for growing Drupal within Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In Germany, Drupal has an amazing developer community, but it is not as well known as a business product as it is in other countries. We need to work on that! (Please note - the Business Days part will take place in German language, because the focus will be on Drupal Business in the German-Speaking countries.
The Community Days are also on Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning. It will be international, with participants from all over Europe. The Community Days will be English, German, and hopefully a few more languages. The community event will have a focus on core, translation, and D8 User Guide sprints. We want to make it as inclusive as we can. If you have not contributed code or documentation to Drupal up to now, or if you are a little rusty, there will be mentors here to help you get started! For some more information about the Community Days, see this blog post on the erdfisch website: https://erdfisch.de/drupalbcdays-heidelberg-2016-community.

Please note, the business ticket is more expensive than the community ticket - to take part in the business part of the event, you need a business ticket.
If you are reading this in English, and don't speak German, then you should in any case buy a community ticket, because the business part is in German.
