What DrupalCon Means to Us
DrupalCon is an amazing week, filled with knowledge, sharing, fun, and, of course, business. What's in store for this year in New Orleans?
Each and every year we pack up our booth, swag, and people, and make the pilgrimage to a location somewhere in the US for DrupalCon North America. It's always an amazing week, filled with knowledge, sharing, fun, and, of course, business. This year it's in New Orleans the week of May 9th, and, per usual, we have a lot going on so we'd like to share a few highlights.
We have a few sessions lead by our team this year, and we'd love to see you there! Better still, stop by our booth (no. 222) before or after each to talk more. We're an open book, and want to share.
Ken is part of a D8 Module Acceleration Program panel for Workbench on Tuesday, May 10th at 2:15 pm in room no. 279.
Founder and CEO George DeMet will be giving a talk on Finding Your Purpose as a Drupal Agency on Wednesday, May 11th at 4:45pm in room no. 262.
We'll be at booth no. 222 all week, and we'd like you to think of it as your basecamp. As you walk around the conference and attend sessions, if a question comes to mind or you need some clarification on some aspect of Drupal, web strategy, design, or development, please do come by and let's talk. And we mean it; we have couches...
We always gladly sponsor both the Drupal Association and DrupalCon. It's good for the community, and it's good for our clients. Why? Because of the nature of the open source community, and the sheer amount of knowledge share to solve common problems as it relates to the web. We utilize and pass on this knowledge to keep the cycle going.
Speaking of sponsorship, we've sponsored Trivia Night at DrupalCon for the last few years, and it's always a fantastic night of fun and Drupal nerdiness! We're proud sponsors again this year, so we hope you can join us for a night filled with trivia, hilarity, and plenty of prizes.

DrupalCon is just a few weeks away in New Orleans, so our Account Manager Allison Manley is joined by our CEO and Founder George DeMet, Drupal veteran and PHP guru Larry "Crell" Garfield, and Senior Front-End Developer Lauren Byrwa on our podcast this time around. They share thoughts about the conference generally, what they're excited about specifically, and what they're expected from the Driesnote, among other topics.
Designing, architecting, and building enterprise-level Web projects can feel like a Moonshot. They're often expensive, complex, and time-consuming undertakings that require the long-term commitment and dedication of the entire company or organization. In this way, many of the lessons of the Apollo program are directly applicable to the work that we undertake with our customers every day at Palantir.
It's no secret that we take project and account management very seriously at Palantir.net. After all, keeping all of the details of your project — regardless of scale — is key to its success today and in the future. But have you heard Project Management: The Musical!? While it didn't make it into DrupalCon, it lives on thanks amazing community members recording it at MidCamp. Kudos to Account Manager Allison Manley and Web Strategist Joe Allen-Black for doing an incredible job.
