Saforian, a web design agency located in Northern Virginia, developed an event app for the upcoming DrupalCon Portland. Our fun, interactive app simplifies the event experience by showing you what’s going on at the conference and the hot spots to check out in Portland, along with making it easy to connect with other Drupal lovers. Not only is the app loaded with useful easy-to-access information but the way it's presented and its user interface are incredibly fun and interactive.Read more

GP Strategies Corporation’s Enterprise Technology Solutions (ETS) Team is experiencing a tremendous growth spurt, and we’re looking for Senior and Principal level software engineers.

We are not your run of the mill software team, and we don’t align to a particular technology that restricts us to being defined as a ‘Microsoft/Java/Open Source shop’.Read more

The topics we had to deal with (while designing branding material for trade fair CeBIT 2012) are summarized in a PDF:
The Marketing Drupal group was created so we can begin to open source Drupal's marketing process and build a framework for freedom to happen as has been done for the code itself.
At the moment many who have expertise in this area simply have no say in the process and thus we do not currently benefit from their many cumulative years of experience.
The results of Mark Boulton's brand work clearly notes "Reinforcing the Brand: Everyone Plays a Role":
I would like to propose a workflow for the brand strategy. While I don't want to get bogged down in "talk talk talk" and never do, it's helpful to have a process and a framework of what needs to be done so that it is useful and long-lived.

First, let's define our purpose: We are working on the Branding of Drupal so that we can _____________ Drupal faster than it is _______________ing now.
It's great to see this initiative, and really awesome it's run by so cool people :)
Recently at a Singapore Drupal Meetup, a participant crowdsourced a Drupal Evangelism presentation.
In case he's interested in sharing (he should), where can he upload the files?
