Thank you, DrupalCon

So, DrupalCon is now over. I’m sitting here in the shuttle bus to Budapest with Dries, Webchick, Addison Berry, Tiburon and Drew. It’s been an exciting week for me, so many new friends and so much new knowledge.

Of all the 503 participants, there were only a precious few I had met in real life before, so it was all a bit daunting, but now I’m really glad I went.

It’s hard to find words for how great I think it has been. Meeting so many talented and friendly people has been inspiring. There is something special about the Druapl community. Unlike other computer events or conferences I have been at, everyone has been friendly and open to me, especially the Palantir guys who I had the pleasure of spending a great deal of time with.

I have had the opportunity to talk to a lot of the great minds in the Drupal-community. Thank you for all your hard work for the Drupal-community, and thank you for taking the time to share your experience with me and others. So thank you all, and a special thanks to Gabor and Kristof who managed to arrange all this, and to Dries who still manages to keep this community together and moving forward.

It was also nice meeting the guys from Ã…rhus, and a big thank you to the Erdfish-guy who found my iPhone.

Also thanks to Mark Griffith for accommodating me and a friend for two nights in Budapest. I hope you enjoyed DrupalCon.

I’m flying home to Denmark in 12 hours, and since Morten.dk talked me into holding a DrupalCamp in Copenhagen with me, it is probably going to be a hectic time, but I do hope to see some of you in Copenhagen, 15.-16. November 2008.
