DrupalCon Munich 2012 - I'm a speaker

This year I've been to Denver, Colorado and Portland, Oregon. Next week I'm heading off to Munich, Bavaria to speak at DrupalCon Munich. Later in the year I'll be heading to San Francisco for the final face to face board meeting of the Drupal Association for the year.

That's me, Donna Benjamin, Drupal Association director at Large, international woman of mystery! Ok, perhaps not that mysterious. Perhaps I should explain?

Late last year, the board of the Drupal Association put six things on the agenda for 2012.

One of those was to coordinate Global Training Days to get more people to start learning Drupal and help address the world wide talent famine for skilled drupalistas.

The next one is happening on Friday 22 June. That's this week.

The dates for follow up Global Training Days are 14 September and 14 December.

See drupal.org/learn-drupal for all the details

 

But how did we get here?

Back in early February I got myself elected to the Drupal Association (DA) board. Last week, I attended my first board meeting in Denver at DrupalCon. It made me feel a whole lot better about this new role, because until then, I'd not really had a chance to do anything. Other than agree the DA should open a bank account in Europe so we can better deal with European currencies and events.

Edit: Oh My! I won. 10 Feb 2012

If you want to vote in the Drupal Association election you have less than 10 hours left to do so!

Where to vote?

I'm running for election as an "At Large" board member of the Drupal Association.

"Meet the candidates" forums were scheduled so members of the Drupal community could ask questions of the nominees.  We were all asked to do a brief introduction, then respond to questions either by voice, or by IRC, and then were all asked to make a final statement. 

Rather than adding to the already lengthy wiki summary of the candidate meetings, I'm posting the edited version of my responses here instead.  See the full IRC transcript, and others summaries here:
