Core Conversations

The Core Conversations track is a place for people actively working on Drupal or to meet and plan the future of Drupal. Each session is either two 15 minute or one 30 minute presentation, followed by 30 minutes of discussion.
Each core initiative will give status updates as part of the this track.

The leads and selection committee for this track are:

  • Greg Dunlap
  • Larry Garfield
  • Angie Byron
  • Dries Buytaert

The Core Conversations take place at Croydon Park Hotel, Centennial Suite, just a 5-minute walk from Fairfield Halls.

Are Core Conversations for me?

The target audience for the Core Conversations sessions are those actively engaged in pushing Drupal forward:

  • People actively engaged in developing and furthering Drupal core.
  • People actively engaged in developing and furthering the infrastructure so that it can better support the rapidly growing Drupal community.
  • People actively engaged in developing and furthering Drupal documentation.
  • People with specific proposals for how to improve some aspect of Drupal core, the infrastructure, or documentation.

If you are new to Drupal, work mostly in contrib space, or simply want to learn more about Drupal and Drupal development then you will get far more out of the regular sessions, particularly in the Coder, Themer, and Site Building tracks.
