Drupalcon Boston 2008

It’s been more than four years since I began using the open source appliction Drupal at the end of 2003, and it’s come a long way in that time. This week more than 800 folks from around the world gathered in Boston to Drupalcon 2008 to geek out with fellow Drupalers at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Though I could only be there for one day, it was great to experience the friendly, generous OS vibe that’s such a big part of this community and feel all the enthusiasm for what’s coming next for Drupal.

It was particularly encouraging to see issues of user experience design being emphasized, since this is something we’ve been working hard on this year at BC. On Thursay I gave a talk called “Building Capacity Through Good Usability: Lessons from Instructional Design” and it was helpful other people with a similar interest in improving the usability resources for those designing with Drupal.

  1. Hi Tim,

    Nice to see and read so many (relatively) recent blog posts from you. I really like getting these snapshots of your soul, if you will.

    Good luck with the dissertation, whichever way you decide to move on it. I’m going to try to enjoy the sunshine today since there is more snow in the forecast. Sheesh, happy spring!
