The MassMutual Women in Technology Conference was really great today!

The CIO called out the huge success of our Scratch workshop from the day before, I got a picture in the #RedChair, and had amazing seating for all the keynotes including the amazing Taylor Mali.

Super big thanks to, NERDSummit 2015 Platinum Sponsor, MassMutual!

Your next Drupal expert could be hiding beneath a rock of self doubt.
(Illustration by Colin Panetta) Drupal, over the past several years, has largely been a technology solution that basically sells itself. From huge organizations (like NYSE, NBC, Sony, Pfizer) to entire governments to well established educational institutions (such as Yale, MIT, UMASS), much of the world has standardized on Drupal as their solution for millions of websites.

THE NERDSUMMIT 2014 SCHEDULE HAS BEEN POSTED!

Speakers are still confirming their accepted sessions, but the NERDSummit 2014 schedule is posted here and looking amazing! 

https://nerdsummit.org/nerdsummit-2014/program/schedule

Check it out and get your tickets!

https://nerdsummit.org/nerdsummit-2014

Many amazing speakers have confirmed for an exciting variety of talks across the weekend!

https://nerdsummit.org/nerdsummit-2014/speakers

Some schedule highlights include the keynotes from Ashe Dryden, Susan Buck and Damien McKenna. Friday is loaded with trainings to expand your skills or learn new ones. Along with great presentations, Saturday's expert panels are really shaping up. Sunday is all about contributing back with collaborative tasks and mentors for all levels to get into participating in the Open Source community. 

For example: 
https://nerdsummit.org/nerdsummit-2014/sessions/get-involved-core-sprint-new-drupal-core-contributors

Saturday and Sunday have amazing youth activities as well as a MakerSpace and Childcare!

See:
https://nerdsummit.org/session-tracks-nerdsummit-2014/youth
https://nerdsummit.org/nerdsummit-2014/schedule/makerspace-childcare


NERDSUMMIT HAS CHILDCARE!

We've partnered with Ideal Workspace (http://www.ideal-workspace.org/) to provide childcare for Saturday and Sunday!

You will find the ability to configure and claim tickets for each child for each day with the rest of the tickets ( https://nerdsummit.org/nerdsummit-2014 ). Read more about Ideal Workspace and the childcare providers ( https://nerdsummit.org/nerdsummit-2014/schedule/childcare ).

Childcare tickets close August 30th!

GET YOUR TICKETS!
 
Creating an account on the site is awesome but you must get your tickets specifically for the 2014 Summit!  ( https://nerdsummit.org/nerdsummit-2014 )

Some of the ticket options have deadlines. For example, the Contributor ticket option (which comes with a NERDs T-SHIRT!) ends August 27th and Childcare tickets close August 30th!

The NERDSummit, this September 12-14 at UMASS/Amherst, is in just a few weeks with more news still to come!

Please keep spreading the word! Forward this to anyone who might be interested in sponsoring and supporting this organization and its annual Summit!
