DrupalCon Austin is still six months away, but I am curious:
a) Has there been any talk yet of a pre-conference higher ed summit? Larger than a BOF or meeting for dinner; I'm thinking more of an all-day thing.
b) If plans are not already in the works, would there be any interest in such an event?
At the last DrupalCon I attended (Denver 2012), there was a Drupal in education "unconference" the day before the 'Con started. It was great to meet folks from other schools and talk about Drupal issues specific to educational institutions. I'd love if we could have a similar event in Austin. I'm happy to organize, or help organize, if there is interest.
