I'm considering organizing a Drupal products summit some time this fall. The main purpose of the meeting would be to create a knowledge sharing platform for Drupal shops/individuals that are working on a product: anything built with Drupal that has a repeatable business model (can be specialized services for Drupal shops, distributions, applications, websites built with Drupal that target a certain market segment).
The main practical outcomes I hope to achieve with this meeting are:
- The creation of a workgroup that will build an ethical Drupal Application Store
- Increase of knowledge about lean startup methodologies in the Drupal community
- Strengthening the network of Drupal product companies and the creation of a mutual support community
I think I could organize a 180-200 man conference in Ghent, Belgium. I'm trying to get an idea of the interest in this topic in the community, if you are interested in making this come true please post a comment. Any feedback is also very much appreciated.
