We are happy to announce New England Drupal Camp's focus in 2017 is Multilingual. To anchor our conference, we are fortunate to have Aimee Hannaford, from Hook 42, delivering the keynote presentation titled "Inclusion and Diversity in the Ever-growing Global Digital Marketplace."
As Drupal 8 has multilingual capabilities in Core, it has become easier and more accessible to deliver a multilingual website. During NEDCamp 2017 we will have some sessions that focus on WHY and HOW to build multilingual websites. If multilingual is your thing, you can submit a session here.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.

What is a NEDCamp Focus?
A "focus" is our way to bring attention to an important topic. In 2016 our focus was Accessibility and the conference format was a success. While we will have multiple sessions focused on multilingual; we will also have sessions on a broad range of Drupal topics.
