Don't Miss Leveraging Aegir on July 22nd

It's that point in our planning when we start to profile some sessions for the event. We're starting with this Drupal-As-A-Service session from Jason Schulte.   Jason and the Mobomo team will be take you through Aegir and how they use it to deploy high performance, high availability sites. Their session will teach you how to deploy Aegir to create secure, scalable architecture to manage multiple Drupal sites through a single interface. 

Beginner Drupal and Project Management Half Day Trainings Tuesday, July 21st

This year, part of our Trainings curriculuum are two amazing half day sessions. There's Breakthrough Project Portfolio Performance from Fortezza Consulting and for the Drupal beginners out there we have Getting Started with Drupal from Fig Leaf Software. But it's probably better if we break this down a little into digestible chunks of awesomeness with some info on both of the presenters, their companies and what you might get out of the Tuesday half day trainings (ps, get your tickets ASAP before they're all gone!). So, without further delay, let's take a little look under the hood at Fig Leaf Software and also at Fortezza Consulting...


Get your Training Here! Get Your Training Here! Get your Training HERE!!

I've been working with Capital Camp, Drupal Government Days and now Drupal GovCon since the start. Clearly, I need more of a life, but I digress. From the start, under the escalator in Chicago with Betsy and Kieran, we really just wanted to make sure our little event provided great training for all attendees. But this year, with our new name, the Core Code Sprint (don't forget to sign up), Webchick keynoting, and the tremendous response we got from session submissions (almost 170 for just 76 spots, just amazing), we just had to kick training butt, right? I mean, come on we totally had to kick this training thing up a notch, right?



I'm thrilled to be writing this announcement because this person was one of the first people I met in the Drupal community. She was definitely the highest profile one I'd met and there I was, one of 3 women in my class being taught by the likes of Eaton, Randy Fay and Webchick.
