Event type: 

Drupal Developer Days is coming up fast in Europe. This year, the host city is Barcelona in Spain and dates are Friday, June 15, to Sunday, June 17, 2012. The programme includes sprints on Friday with sessions and a party on Saturday and more sessions on Sunday morning. There are many interesting sessions proposed, and more are welcome.

What best opportunity to couple with some multilingual sprinting as well! It is hard to find a place where people are as active about Drupal and as interested in multilingual issues at the same time as in this region of the world nowadays. In January I've proposed a pretty intensive sprint schedule for this year, which includes all weekdays sprinting before Drupal Dev Days Barcelona (Monday to Friday). So our sprint would be from June 11th (Mon) to June 15th (Fri), leading into the Drupal Dev Days conference. The location for the sprint is the same as the camp. Citilab, "a center for social and digital innovation in Cornella de Llobregat, Barcelona". Many of us are staying in the NH Cornella, but it is not a requirement to stay there. It would be practical to stay close.

When talking to people it turned out that might not be entirely realistic, but as usual, we strive on better data to make decisions, so I'd call every interested party to fill in this signup doodle and indicate their likely availability. Now this event is barely two months away, so it should be easier to tell your availability compared to January. Remember that your information helps determine the final dates for the sprint, so don't hesitate to provide your availability.

Nobody should drop their keyboards until the sprint of course! There is plenty of work to do that you can help with from any of our top priority tasks in the meantime and even instead of attending the sprint. If you need help picking from that list, let me know and I can help you personally. Also, we hold initiative IRC meetings every two weeks with the next one coming up on April 11th. Watch this space for further announcements!

Looking for sponsors

I'm looking for sponsors to help feed the troops. Think soft drinks, pastries, healthy snacks, lunch ordered in, etc. to help people keep going. If you are interested, please contact me at http://drupal.org/user/4166/contact


sprint will be on the whole week

Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback on the signup form from people planning to come sprint all week, expect the sprint to be on for the whole week. I booked my flights 5 minutes ago :)
