Only one week left to register for DrupalCon New Orleans

Drupal - Fri, 04/29/2016 - 15:02

Get a DrupalCon Ticket

DrupalCon New Orleans is May 9-13th. The schedule is now available on the website, so you can start planning out your week.

See the Schedule

With 130 sessions in 13 tracks across 3 days, 88 Birds of a Feather (BOF) roundtable talks, plus keynotes, sprinting opportunities, an expo hall full of exhibitors, and Monday training sessions and summits galore, there’s no shortage of great things to do at DrupalCon New Orleans.

To view your schedule, just click the “My Schedule” button on the main schedule page. You’ll be able to sort by day, making it easy to see what your plans are every step of the way through the convention.

To add an item to your schedule, open the session information and click the “Add to schedule” button visible under the time and location information. You can also remove items from your schedule either under the specific session page or on your schedule.

To claim a BOF, select the day and time you’d like to hold your BOF and click on ‘Create a BOF’ button in an available room and add in information about what you’ll be discussing. 

We have dozens of time slots to choose from, so the sooner you claim a BOF, the more likely it is that you'll reserve the time and space that's right for you.

See the BOFs

And remember, if you’re attending a training or summit on Monday, it won’t automatically be added to your schedule, so make sure you add it from its unique page on the website.

We hope you enjoy using the scheduler, and look forward to hearing your feedback when we see you at DrupalCon New Orleans. Just as a reminder, if you haven't yet purchased your DrupalCon ticket, do so soon -- regular ticket pricing ends in a little over a week!
