I should be able to post all the financial information next week or the week after, but we have a couple of outstanding items, so I’m waiting for those to be resolved before we post all the info. If you are interested in the financial info, it will be posted here, on the site and cross-posted to the drupal4Govgroup on

We also have our Flickr account active now and are loading pictures from the event. Check out Arva’s pictures!!

Taking Care Of Event Housekeeping


So, time to do a little housekeeping ahead of Friday's event. If we missed anything, add a comment and we'll answer away.

Attire: developer formal (t-shirt and jeans are fine). No need for a suit and tie. I promise, unless you're coming from work, leave the suit and tie at home.

Building Access: 14th street, middle of block. If taking metro, walk through the Regan building out to 14th street and cross the street into the Commerce Department

And there's even more….

Announcing The Morning Keynote: Mr. Himself, Chris Musialek


I've had the pleasure of knowing Chris for a few years now because of his involvement with Drupal4Gov. Now, I get to write about him because he has graciously agreed to be our Keynote speaker this Friday morning!

Not only is Chris an open source and open standards advocate, he's also Mr. Data, afterall, the way Chris sees it, "you can't do much without the data." So, when more people, government and citizen, alike, understand what data brings to the table, you can understand the importance of the use and reuse of government data.

And when Chris talks about data, he means all kinds of data, even…geo data.

Chris sess a lot of "potential in improving the amount of data available and to make it easier to use as a developer." In doing this, he sees the potential good for government to do more than just listen to users, but to find ways to improve the quality of government data and for communities of practice to find ways to make it easier for all government entities to put their data online.

Is it May 18th, Yet?


We've heard that the GSA sponsored Web Manager's conference has been postponed, perhaps even cancelled, but FEAR NOT!! Drupal Government Day really is still taking place.

We WILL be at the Department of Commerce on May 18th, set up for registration beginning at 7:30 (ugh, I better get coffee and donuts first!).

We WILL have coffee and probably donuts, too.

We WILL be providing lunch, yum, yum.

We WILL be offering an all day security room.

We WILL be having lunch-time BoFs in the rooms and at tables during lunch.

And WE WILL be HAVING a HAPPY HOUR on FRIDAY!! (ssshhh, we'll tell you more the day of the event).

So, Fear Not my good Government Co-worker folks, we are still on and we will still be having Drupal Government Day!!

And the Sessions Are....


So, we’ve done it now!

We’ve finally approved, plotted and room-ized (OMG, this is so not a word!) all of the sessions into a nice neat package for you to set up for your own personal agenda.

So, go on, have at it!! Head over to SESSIONSand set up your agenda!
