The news embargo is over so we may now officially react on the DA's decision to prefer Paris over Maastricht.

It is of course a serious bummer for the organizing team (well for me at least), but I guess there were good reasons to choose for Paris. Hopefully those reasons will be made public, so we and future organizers know how to propose better drupalcons.

I'm sure the French drupalcon will be even better then what we planned it to be.

Ready for Drupaltown Maastricht?

Only local images are allowed.
A lot has happened since the dutch/belgian drupal community met on the drupaljam in breda to kick off the organization of the next drupalcon in Maastricht, Netherlands.
What first started as a wicked idea from Bert Boerland at the entrance of the Szeged venue, has now shaped into the current proposal that has been submitted to the Drupal Association.

Start spreading the word!

Nu het schrijf werk is gedaan moeten we laten zien dat we ook flink wat lawaai kunnen maken. Dus promoot DrupalCon Maastricht 2009 waar je kan en waar relevant is! Dit is niet alleen om meer bekendheid te genereren, maar ook om aan de Drupal Association te laten zien dat we weten hoe je marketing bedrijft; want als we de Con gaan doen zullen we heel veel lawaai moeten maken om onze en hun aspiraties waar te maken.

Germany DrupalCon Team is supporting Maastricht and Paris in 2009

We have commited the final decision at http://drupalcamp.de/ and decided, not to write a proposal for a DrupalCon 2009, but to support Maastricht with activities.
We will achieve this in the form of manpower at the spot but also with our previous requests for http://drupalcamp.de/sponsoren and sponsors with whom we have so far only in discussion.
The decision to support Maastricht is from the proximity and the already advanced state of planning of
http://groups.drupal.org/drupalcon-maastricht-2009 arisen, where we wanted no further internal community competition.

Idea: Drupal Village at Hacking at Random

UPDATE: Now our space-time continuum has been corrected to allow visits to both DrupalCon and Har2009 this is the time to get yourself a ticket, double check that camping gear in the attic and let me know if you'll be able to come!

August 13-16 2009 Hacking at Random, the next iteration in a 20 year long tradition of open air hacking events will be held in Vierhouten, the Netherlands. These events are (self)organized every 4 years (2 years after every ccc-camp) and are every geeks dream in cool presentations, workshops and technology phun in every way imaginable. I will be there for sure and I post this to find out if there are more Drupal people interested in coming to this event and possibly help to organize a Community Village.
Depending on the number of volunteers and contributers I can imagine anything from just a bunch of small tents gathered around a Drupal Flag drinking beers in the sun to getting some bigger event tents to hold getting started sessions, (security) code sprints or a CMS hacking face off.
