Durham, NC – Kosta Harlan, Developer at DesignHammer, will be attending DrupalCon Chicago, the world’s premiere Drupal conference. DrupalCon Chicago will be an international event that brings together people who use, develop, design, and support the Drupal platform. The conference will take place March 7–10, 2011 at the Sheraton Hotel & Towers in Chicago, IL.
"I'm looking forward to learning about Drupal 7 from other Drupal developers and site builders,” said Kosta. “This conference is bringing together thousands of people from around the world, and it's a unique opportunity for me to learn from and engage with many talented people."
Drupal is an open-source content management system with an active, worldwide development community. This open development model creates a free, flexible, robust, and constantly improving CMS solution for websites large and small.
“Drupal is a great solution for building complex websites. We've been using it on a large number of our projects at DesignHammer, and it's what I spend most of my time working on. The Drupal community is very active, creative, and helpful, which is what makes the platform great."
The first DrupalCon was held in 2005 in Antwerp, Belgium. Attendance has grown from 25 at the first DrupalCon to 3,000 at DrupalCon San Francisco in 2010. Attendees to DrupalCon San Francisco represented 20 different countries. DrupalCon is not just attended by developers—designers, themers, project managers, and corporate leaders will also participate. Projections for DrupalCon Chicago are upwards of 4,000 people.
