Twee keer per jaar wordt er een conferentie georganiseerd voor alle Nederlands sprekende mensen die met Drupal werken: DrupalJam! DrupalJams zijn gratis toegankelijk en bedoeld voor iedereen die op welke manier dan ook in Drupal geïnteresseerd is. Er komen ontwikkelaars, grafisch ontwerpers, professionals, hobbyisten, studenten en ouwe rotten in het vak.
An hour ago I got an email from Bonnie Bogle, a member of the organisation committee that organises DrupalCon DC, telling me that I have been given a scholarship to attend the Con! Fellow Drupallers Bojhan Somers and Wim Leers have also been selected for a scholarship. Never, ever do I win something with contests and stuff, but this prize more than makes up for that. Yeah!
The Drupal devroom schedule has just been published and it seems that my proposal has been accepted. On February 8, around 16:15, I will be doing a talk about Taxonomy. Are you a newcomer to Drupal and don't know what Taxonomy is or do you find it overwhelming? Are you a more advanced user, but do you still struggle when trying to categorise your site's content? Are you... Wait, you should all be there, because there will be something interesting for everyone!
Can't wait to see you at FOSDEM!
Drupal 6 features new methods for making your site multilingual. Content language can be defined by a path prefix (
example.com/nl/about for a Dutch about page) or by a domain (
example.nl/about for the same page). However, lots of people think this is not flexible enough. They want users to be able to use an interface language of their choice, independent of the content language. I'm one of those people, so I decided to take a shot.
I am pleased to say that once again Drupal will be present at FOSDEM, held at February 7 and 8. We (as in the Drupal project) have been appointed a dev room for Sunday, between 9 and 5 o'clock GMT+1.
People may now propose or request talks at groups.drupal.org. I have proposed a talk about Taxonomy: the differences between conventional categorisation and Taxonomy, the differences between Drupal releases and how core and contributed modules may be used to apply, manipulate and browse it.
