DrupalCon Portland comes with the classic DrupalCon format that regulars know so well. A training/CXO day followed by three session/BoF/exhibition days followed by a sprint day.
While deeply involved core developers will work on any given day of DrupalCon, getting groups together at the same place is only possible on the sprint day and that quickly flies away. Based on prior experience organising extra sprint opportunities around DrupalCon Denver, Munich and BADCamp 2012, we are looking to have extended sprint opportunities this time as well!
Extended sprints are on the weekends both before and after DrupalCon. There are already various sprints signed up including Multilingual, Views, Mobile, Configuration management and Twig all to further development of Drupal 8 at various capacities on these weekends. Now is the time to consider if you can be available and book your travel and hotel accordingly!
Looking for sponsors
We are looking for more sponsors to cover expenses. If you are interested sponsoring or if you need sponsors to cover expenses, please contact me at http://drupal.org/user/4166/contact
The Drupal Association and DrupalCon are not involved in the organisation of these extra sprint opportunities.
