Latest thoughts, if any, of Rachel Lawson...

I am happy to see that many people are doing a really good job of writing up about what happened at DrupalCon Vienna 2017. I can’t do a better job than that already done so I’m going to try and take a different approach and talk about how all the things that happened made me feel. Buckle-up, this might get emotional…

Or, why Dries’ interesting article is missing incredibly valuable data but that’s fair because that data is really hard to collect…

I’m very happy that Dries had had the opportunity to update his blog post, “Who sponsors Drupal development?” as it does create an interesting picture about the project and community I care so much about.

I don’t think it will come to the surprise to many, though, that I am left feeling frustrated that it concentrates on code-contribution, though.

My Drupal user profile says I have been around for ten years now. It’s a bit of a lie in some ways. You see, there is a very big difference between using Drupal and being part of the Drupal Community…

May 2011 was when I really entered that community. I had not that long come out (L, B, T, Q; one or more of these, I‘m easily confused) and remember being dropped off outside the venue of Drupal7Camp in Leeds, feeling absolutely terrified whether I would be accepted by the people inside etc.
