NEDCamp 2020 is just a few days away, and we can’t wait to see all of your virtual faces. We are particularly excited for this year’s keynote by Heather Rocker, Executive Director of the Drupal Association, on a crucial topic: Better Together: How the Drupal Community Can Change the World.

We know that open source projects need engaged communities in order to thrive, but how does a sense of community affect your personal and professional aspirations? We'll explore how community creates innovation, empowers collective wisdom, and inspires us - both as individuals and as a team - to go farther than we imagined. Our community has the power to drive Drupal, and Drupal has the power to enable positive impact on the world!

Be sure to grab your ticket to join us at NEDCamp for Heather's keynote, ask your questions live after the keynote and participate in the BOFs. Remember, this is no ordinary online conference, so come prepared to dive in and discuss the topics you’re interested in. Take a look at our schedule for the wide variety of BOF Topics, hosted by members of our community.
