Just one week for DrupalCon 2015 in Barcelona. Cause we are good hosts, the Spanish Drupal Association (AED) and drupal.cat are organising several activities for before, during and after the conference.
We want all the attendees that come from different countries to feel like at home here and also they have a chance to meet our local community. If you can’t make DrupalCon but you want to learn more about Drupal or meet the community, there are also activities for you. We have organised social events and free learning sessions open to everyone.
Drupal & Beers
Thursday, 17th of September, 19:30 - 21:00 at Cerveseria bELchiCA
If you arrive to Barcelona a few days before the conference starts, you can join the local Drupal user group meetup. It is a good opportunity to meet the “usual suspects” of the Spanish community. We will also have a chance to mingle, welcome the newcomers and organise the rest of the activities that will take place during the week. If you have time and the jetlag don’t beat you it would be great to count with your help.
Tour de Drupal
Sunday, 20th of September, all day long along the coast.
Some of the attendees are coming to DrupalCon by bike and they invite us to do the last stage with them from Blanes (9:00AM) until a Chiringuito in Barcelona (7:00pm). No excuses to not to pedal: you can join them at any moment and you can even rent a bike! All the information in the blog of the DrupalCon and following @tourdedrupal.
