We are looking for volunteers to help us promote Drupal 8 at OSCON next week. The conference will be Monday 26th - Wednesday 28th October in the RAI in Amsterdam, where we had Drupalcon last year. Now that Drupal 8 finally has a release candidate, this is one of the most important moments to be promoting our project, and you can help.

Two weeks ago I heard about an opportunity to get a free exhibition space at OSCON for open source projects. I checked and since we didn’t have an exhibition space yet for the Drupal community I requested one. I also requested a space for WalkHub. I received both.

Together with a colleague we will be manning the WalkHub exhibition space all conference long. WalkHub will be next to Drupal. So occasionally I could take care of both spaces. It would however be better if at least 1 other person could be around to help out, especially when things get busy.

We have a free ticket for you if you can help with the Drupal delegation. If you are attending but can’t help with the exhibition and you don’t have a ticket yet, use the following discount code to get 25% off: Drupal25.

If you are in town, or willing to come help promote Drupal, send me a mail kristof@pronovix.com.
