From the 8th to the 10th of July, there will be a brand new Drupal event in Barcelona: the Drupal Summer. It is organised by the local community drupal.cat and it seems to be gaining a lot of traction and interest from attendees and sponsors.
The event will kick off with sprints and a Drupal 8 workshop (in Spanish) by the training company Forcontu. Focusing in site builders in the morning and more developer oriented in the afternoon.
Saturday is going to be the main day, with three tracks of sessions in Spanish and English, here's the programme. Finally, Sunday will have a mentored sprint for beginners and also regular sprints.
I will be speaking about PHP 7 and Drupal 8 first thing in the morning on Saturday. I will be going through some of the new stuff in PHP and how to use it in Drupal context, why you should consider upgrading and how fast it is compared with previous versions.
Tickets are on sale now through eventbrite in the event site.
