Looking for work?
A chance for Drupal developers who are looking for work (contracts, partnerships, employment) to make a 1 min pitch to the audience. This is your chance to intro yourself. Be sure to mention your skills and what work you are looking for.

Lightning talks
Got a quick 5 min talk up your sleeve? Bring it along on the day.

Get involved

We are actively encouraging presenters and mentors to come forth to take part in future events. If you have some ideas, just let us know. Each month there is room for lightning talks as well, so if you have something to present bring it along.
