I'm not sure how many Tech camps or conferences can claim to have two women keynote speakers, but I'm happy to help Drupal Camp Twin Cities make some waves! Friday's Keynote speaker will be the highly respected Angela Byron, and I'm honored to follow in her wake.

The idea for my own keynote session Taking Drupal back came to me during several heated discussions with fellow Drupalvangelists about the current state of our favorite CMS, and where we're headed - both as a platform, and as a community. Drupal is growing, and growing fast. How are we going to manage these growing pains in a way that keeps the technology moving forward, but doesn't hurt the community that made us what we are today? The answer: by taking Drupal back!

I'll also be giving a session on Drupal 7 usability along with Angie Byron, Bojhan Somers, Brad Bowman, David Rothstein, Chad Fennell, and Dharmesh Mistry. The UX study will be conducted in the days leading up to the camp, and this session will be our first chance to report the findings of the study back to our community. Similar sessions will also be offered in Colorado and London. The UX study still needs funding, so please chip in if you can!

I'll also be conducting a FREE Drupal 7 training workshop along with two of Chapter Three's favorite trainers, David Needham and Carl Wiedemann. 73 of the 75 available seats have already been claimed by the Drupal-curious.

It's going to be a big week for me, but I'm looking forward to every minute!
