- Ubercart on Drupal 6 - an overview of the changes made during the Drupal 6 migration and a roadmap for future development. This is a quick introduction to Ubercart focusing on its strengths on Drupal 6 and our plans for further improvements for UC 2.x and 3.x.
- Advanced Ubercart Usage - an overview of some advanced features Ubercart offers and how to get them working in your stores. I'll be covering the core and contributed modules that allow you to do things like file downloads, recurring fees, selling node access, setting up node checkout, and more.
What's that you say? Drupalcon DC? Isn't that like 4 months away? Yes indeed, it seems like the last Drupalcon barely departed from the back of our minds when the new Drupalcon site was up and running. Tickets sold super fast and the sessions started pouring in. Lo and behold, the deadline for session proposals turned out to be early December, three months ahead of the conference. We had been waiting to make our proposals as we've focused on some client work and on getting the 2.x beta out the door. However, with the deadline, I buckled down and posted up our two session proposals:
Yep, as far as I know there will be full video recording just like in Szeged.
So I might get to come out to DrupalCon in DC... anyone out there want to show a guy around? Thing that sucks, is that it's an all-day flight for me, so I won't be getting in until Midnight on the 3rd. That is, if I'm able to go... we have yet to ask our CEO if the company would be willing to send me out there.
I'll let you know for sure soon as I can
Sure thing. I lived in DC for a few years before starting Ubercart. If your decide to go we can recommend good restaurants, bars, clubs etc. . . We haven't set our living arrangements yet, but we would be glad to include you in them if possible. Also we usually have an Ubercart dinner at least one night. There is an awesome Ethiopian restaurant in Adams Morgan I want to go back to. You should definitely go. The entire Drupal community is full of warm welcoming people. I've been to my fair share of conferences, and Drupalcon is by far my favorite. You are a valued member of the community. Anywhere the Ubercart crew goes, you will be welcome.
P.S. Reasons your CEO should let you go. 1. You'll learn all sorts of cool stuff from all sorts of hella smart people and come back excited about doing them. Excited about work = good. 2. You'll make lots of great contacts, so next time your stumped not only will you know who has the answer, but you will be good friends with them and they will go out of their way to help you. 3. You will bring back lots of great swag. If he lets you go, you will cut him in
thanks andy i booked a room at the hotel linked on the con website... i think it's going to happen, though; our CEO is a pretty understanding guy. I'll let you know for sure next week. Can't wait to meet you guys!
Looks like I'm definitely going. I'll be flying non-stop from San Diego to Reagan airport on the 3rd, and then heading into downtown where the District Hotel is (where I'll be staying until the morning of the 8th). I hear there's a really good Thai place right there, so I imagine that's where I'll be eating most of my meals
I'll be checking back to see when you guys plan on hanging around and hopefully what the schedule is once it gets posted. Looking forward to getting to meet some of you guys.
