Tuesday this week marks the official start of DrupalCon in Washington, D.C. for the first time this year, and it’s going to be awesome. On Thursday morning at 11:30, we’re hosting a coffee for interested members of the press, and we want to extend the invite to bloggers who might be interested in writing about the event.

The event will be on Thursday morning, March 5, 11:30-12:30 at the Washington Convention Center. Key members of the Drupal and open source community at large will be attending, and if you’d like to speak with someone about a particular issue, please let us know and we’ll get you hooked up with the right people depending on your interest. The agenda for the coffee event will be as follows:

  • Business of open source update
  • Recap of Drupal founder Dries Buytaert’s The State of Drupal keynote from the Wednesday, March 3 explaining more about the Drupal project
  • Update on the vibrancy and strength of the D.C. technology community from local community members, particularly related to web technology
  • Questions & Answers

The event will be a great way to learn more about the Drupal community, the DrupalCon conference, and some of the latest happenings in the D.C. tech scene in general.  There’s a large and active local Drupal community in Washington, ranging from individual bloggers and small NGO’s to large businesses. Drupal’s government use includes custom intranet sites for the SPAWAR project at the Department of Defense and the White House’s new website. To find out more about DrupalCon, you can visit

If you’re interested, we’d love to see you there! We’re asking press to let us know if they’re planning to come so we can make sure we have a press pass available for you – email us at and we’ll make sure you’re set.
