I'm looking for someone to share a room with in Barcelona from September 18 to September 23 (tuesday to sunday). I'll probably be staying at a hotel in the price range of about 30 to 50 € per night/person (thus 60 to 100 € for the room per night). Please contact me via the contact form or by mail.
There are a "LOT" of contrib modules out there. Even more so, there are a great deal of good modules that have been neglected. Lets be honest, a developers time is precious, and we all get spread thin and a bit scattered sometimes, and we leave our children (modules) to the way side for other things (like "bill-paying" modules/development so we can eat from time to time :) ).Read more
Some of the Open Office Developers in Barcelona are members of the Catalan Drupal community also and let us know that next Open Office 2007 Conference will be held in Barcelona exactly the same dates as our Drupalcon. (By the way, I like the way they choosed Barcelona - call for locations, proposals and voting. We might use this methode next time?)
We are now talking to the OO catalan developers about a possible collaboration. My thoughts are that this would be a great opportunity to have two compatible open source conferences on the same venue from which everyone could benefit (shared costs for a greater publicity). There might be a drawback: the venue we planned might not be big enough for both events, so we might have to look for another one. That's not a problem but any other venue will not be as nice, suitable and cheap. However I would like to know what you think about it. What are your comments on this? Thanks.
Finally, we have some dates and place for a next Drupalcon in Barcelona this September 2007:
Dates: 19th - 22nd, this is Wednesday till Saturday
Place: citilab in Cornellà (Barcelona) (http://www.citilab.eu)

Vote for the dates that you want Drupalcon Barcelona 2007 to take place on.
I thought a wiki page could facilitate finding a date that we can all agree on. Rather than having to trawl through a bunch of comments we could collaboratively build a document. Also, I wanted to try posting a wiki page! ;-)
Please state your preference (feel free to modify categories if you feel it brings more clarity):Read more
