Opening Session - The DrupalCon Prenote

The Prenote!

Coming to DrupalCon Amsterdam! Expect the geeky, fun, informative unexpected! A DrupalCon institution, Robert and jam's opening "Prenote" has been getting people out of bed early and excited about DrupalCon since 2010. What's not to like about an infotainment extravaganza featuring Drupal community stars and friends; music and sing-a-longs; bad jokes; technical tutorials on Git, yodeling, use of the alphabet, or proper beer pouring technique? Especially eye-opening if you've never been to DrupalCon or never gotten up early enough to see one of these yet.

Dries says "Be there."

After his Keynote address at DrupalCon Portland, Dries revealed who is his favorite community speakers are, "Actually, I love the session before my keynote by Robert Douglass and jam. It's just hilarious. It's not a very technical session, but it is really, really awesome. I mean, I was watching it and I was laughing all the time." (Video or it didn't happen.)

Come along to get solid practical advice about Drupal, DrupalCon, and how to thrive as a member of the Drupal community ... and come to the Prenote, too! :-D

Rob and jam put their special twist on the meaning of DrupalCon. It's been a fun-filled – and useful – surprise every time. If you only get up early once during DrupalCon, this is the morning to do it. And hey, at least you'll get better seats for my keynote right after." - Dries, the BLT™

How much fun is this? Is it worth it?

If The Sound of Music set to Drupal at DrupalCon is your style ... If you want to see CHX as the ghost of DrupalCon Past in "A Drupal Carol" ... If you'd like to learn the ABCs of DrupalCon and how to pour German beer ... Meet the very model of a modern Drupal developer ... Be a contestant in the Drupal Gameshow Extravaganza ... If you want to play in the DrupalCon iPad Orchestra, sing the Drupal Hallelujah Chorus, dance the Gitty Pokey and meet the Drupal Superheroes ... it's too late, we already did those.

Here's a small taste of how it's been in the past...

Dries attempts the Git Push to release the new CMS (completely massive software) at DrupalCon Austin. Ben Finklea makes an especially fetching Octocat, don't you think?
