Conference Program, Tracks, and Sessions

The Boston Drupal conference will have tracks, planned sessions, as well as sessions from the community. We had 31 Drupal sessions at OSCMS, and 93 sessions at Barcelona. While both of these conferences were highly successful, this year the conference organizers are aiming to raise the bar even higher in terms of session quality.

Drupalcon takes place March 3-6, 2008 at the Boston Convention & Expo Center. On Friday, March 7th the Drupal Code Sprint is taking place at MIT’s Stata Center.

Registration and morning coffee is at 8am-9am Monday-Thursday with the first sessions of the day beginning at 9am. A mid-morning break happens at approximately 10:30am. There’s a one-hour lunch break 12:30-1:30 and a mid-afternoon beverage and snack break is at 3:30pm. The sessions wrap up by 6pm.

Drupalcon Boston session submissions have been selected! Browse the accepted sessions.

There is also a Drupal site showcase and case study contest. Submit your own site now for a chance at some great prizes.

The week at a glance schedule is posted in the forum as a PDF.
