September 1st: the warm-up
Activity 1: Code and documentation sprints
Code/documentation sprints get developers together for a set amount of time – usually one to two days – and just focus writing code or documentation. That's it. No explicit teaching, no sessions, just sharing knowledge, learning from the others as the day progresses and work towards a common goal.
Activity 2: DrupalCamp Paris 4
Gathering of like–minded people to discuss & learn about Drupal, through as many nonpre–scheduled presentations as possible. Starts at 1pm on September 1st.
To register, go to barcamp.org.
Activity 3: Commercial events
Acquia Partner Day: this event will provide an in-depth overview of the Acquia Partner program. If your organization designs, builds and/or implements Drupal solutions for your clients, then we encourage you to attend to learn more about how Acquia can work with you to grow the market for Drupal solution offerings.
September 2-4: the sessions
Track 1: From zero to hero
Learn what Drupal is all about, where to start and how to select and apply the right techniques and building blocks for your projects.
Track 2: Code it, test it, deploy it
Dive into the internals and learn what makes Drupal tick. Share ideas, approaches, pitfalls and possibilities. Take part in discussions and help shape Drupal 7 and beyond.
Track 3: Business development and Strategy
Is Drupal Enterprise Ready (TM)? Does it scale? Can it interconnect with legacy systems and, for that matter, will it still be around when web4.0 rules the world? How is the open source model economically viable and how does Drupal's GPL-based licensing model affect my organizational and commercial strategy?
Find out all this and more through a selection of showcases and war stories. Learn how, and why, organizations increasingly choose Drupal as a foundation for sustainable, industry-specific solutions.
Track 4: User Experience and design
Find out what all the D7 UX fuss is all about and why the effort spearheaded by Mark Boulton and Leisa Reichelt will be one of Drupal's most important milestones to date. Discuss the essence of user interaction and help bridge the gap between designers and developers.
Discover the endless possibilities of the theme layer and how to turn its raw power to your advantage efficiently and correctly. As always: with great power comes great responsibility.
September 5: the final sprint
Apply all that soaked up knowledge, insights and fresh ideas during the a final day of code/documentation sprints.
