Session Days 

The main conference days are Thursday, June 13th and Friday, June 14th.

On Thursday, plan on arriving around 8:15. Follow the signs from the main building entrance to our registration desk where you can pick up your badge. Then grab a complimentary coffee as you make your way to the main plenary to hear the opening remarks at 8:45.

What's happening on Session Days?

The first day starts with opening remarks followed by our Keynote. Todd Ross Nienkerk, CEO and Co-Founder of Four Kitchens will be speaking about "The Future of Content." He's an active member of the web and open-source communities and has keynoted or spoken at more than 60 conferences around the world, including SXSW Interactive. 

We've scheduled four streams of breakout sessions throughout the two days. There are some awesome people coming to speak on a variety of subjects for beginner to advanced levels of Drupal expertise.

We're also doing something new this year. We've got a "Fireside Chat" on Thursday, June 13th where you can hear about real-world experiences from three Drupal agencies that work with industry-leader Acquia.  

Throughout both days, we've secured a dedicated Contribution Room hosted and led by AmyJune Hineline (@volkswagenchick), the Open Source Community Ambassador at Kanopi Studios. All are welcome to join in the community spirit and learn (and contribute) to the Drupal Project. 

Free Website Report for Attendees

As a special bonus to attendees this year, all Drupal North participants can request a free website report to audit their websites for issues.

Sign up for a report and thank the guys at Siteimprove when you collect it at their booth.
