Open source slates dates for annual DrupalCon in Denmark
ECMPlus.com – The Drupal Association is to host this year’s European DrupalCon in Copenhagen, Denmark, from the 23 – 27 August.
With over 3000 people having attended the first event in San Francisco earlier this year, DrupalCon is rapidly becoming one of the largest events in the Open Source calendar, the association claimed.
“We expect DrupalCon Copenhagen to be buzzing,” said Dries Buytaert, the projects founder, who will be giving his regular ‘State of Drupal’ update as one of the event’s keynote presentations.
“Our latest figures show that over one percent of the top million global websites now run on Drupal” he added. “With the release of Drupal 7.0 now imminent, and having diversified the project to allow different ‘distributions’, similar to Linux, users can expect some big advances.”
After announcing the Whitehouse website as a new customer ahead of DrupalCon San Francisco, the Drupal community has maintained its lofty track record announcing new Drupal sites at both the UN and within the European Commission ahead of the Copenhagen event.
