BoFs

BoFs (Birds of a Feather)

We will be adding this functionality very soon. What it will allow you to do is create a BoF and then select a space (Room/Area), a time starting and ending and a day. The sessions will then be written on a whiteboard on the day of the event, then you can just add any others on this whiteboard and tweet about it.

What is a BoF?

Birds of a Feather sessions (or BOFs) are informal gatherings of like-minded individuals who wish to discuss a certain topic without a pre-planned agenda. BOFs allow groups to meet and discuss issues relating to regular conference sessions and talk out common problems facing the community.

Have fun and learn! BOFs exist to provide attendees with an inclusive, informal environment in which to share ideas freely. BOFs can be serious, and a great way to gather the people you’ve been working remotely with on a project in a space to deep dive on a topic, but they can also be fun as well. Knitting BOF? Why not!

Due to the broad interest in these events, we ask that you post no more than 2 BOFs per person.

How to Run a Successful BOF

  • Be respectful of scheduled BOFs
  • Meet in the hallway or at lunch tables if all BOF spaces are reserved
  • Encourage participation from attendees and get everyone's input
  • Split the group if your BOF gets too big so everyone can be heard
  • Collaborate with BOF owners if you want to propose similar topics
  • Ask a speaker to mention your BOF if the topics are complimentary to raise awareness

These Kinds of BOFs will be Moderated and Removed

  • Lecture-like presentations, sales pitches, product demos, or marketing meetings
  • BOFs which violate the Code of Conduct

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
