Birds of a Feather Sessions

Gather together based on shared interests or identities and have casual conversations at a Birds of a Feather session!

Drupal GovCon have space for Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions on each day of the conference.  Look for the BoF Board to see what sessions are planned, or to sign up to host a session. 

What is a BoF?

A Birds of a Feather session (BoF for short) is an informal, fun gathering to discuss a shared interest or identity.  Potential topics could include Drupal and Nonprofits, HAX, [Insert Module Name Here], or whatever's on your mind.

Look for the BoF Board to see what BoFs have been scheduled. 

I have an idea! How do I sign up?

Look for the BoF Board. Find an empty slot, and write in your topic.

We are not offering pre-scheduling for BoFs this year. 

Any tips on how to host a successful BoF?

  1. At the beginning of the BoF, introduce yourself and clearly explain the purpose of the BoF. 
  2. Invite everyone attending to introduce themselves and say why they're interested in the topic.
  3. Facilitate discussion around the topic. Remember, this is NOT a formal presentation. As host, it is your job to give everyone an opportunity to be involved and to keep the discussion on-topic.
  4. At the end of the BoF, thank everyone for coming. If there are resources around the topic or a place to continue the discussion online or elsewhere, share that with the group.
