With just 2 days before the official start of Drupal North, we've got some important announcements:
1. Our Thursday Dinner for Out-of-Towners (and any locals that want to join in)
The Drupal North Summit committee has been working hard, putting together what we hope will be an amazing Drupal conference here in Toronto Canada next week.
Promet Source, headquartered in Toronto's Sister City, Chicago, is super excited to offer Drupal 8 Crash Course (for Non-Devs) at Drupal North. We love Toronto so much we wanted to share our Fab Five spots to check out while you're there.
We're pleased to announce that Suzanne Dergacheva will be the Saturday afternoon featured speaker at Drupal North this year. Suzanne is well known in the worldwide Drupal community, having attended and presented at DrupalCons and Drupal Camps throughout the world. She is both a co-founder of Evolving Web, a Drupal shop based in Montreal, and she is the most recent addition to the Drupal Association's board of directors.
We've got a fantastic keynote this year at the Drupal North Regional Summit. Hillary Hartley, the province of Ontario's Chief Digital Officer and Deputy Minister, Consumer Services will be our opening keynote for the conference!
With a population of more than 13.5 million, Ontario is home to about 2 in 5 Canadians. Hillary's mission is to make government simpler, better and faster. She's got some great tools to make that happen - starting with Ontario.ca. It's a premier platform and the province’s flagship website, getting around a million hits a week.
We're offering some awesome training opportunities to Drupal North attendees this year. Our trainer from Chicago is bringing their amazing programs with them. They've been training Drupalists throughout the world and are looking forward to doing their thing at this year's Drupal North Regional Summit.
With high-quality programs and subsidized pricing, the training options are great opportunities for those new and experienced with Drupal to learn in a classroom setting. The full-day course cost $250 each (plus HST) and are offered on Friday, August 10th.
Hello Fellow Drupalists! Registration is now officially open for the fourth annual Drupal North Regional Summit.
After enjoying the sights and sounds of Montreal (2016) and Ottawa (2017), this year we are back to Toronto at the iconic Toronto Reference Library from August 10-12.
