What to Expect at DrupalCon Portland 2022

Who’s excited for this year’s DrupalCon? We know we are.  

Taking place at the Oregon Convention Center on April 25-28 in Portland, Oregon, DrupalCon is the largest Drupal community in-person event. It’s an opportunity to bring attendees together from around the globe to share thought leadership on open source digital experiences and enhance their Drupal knowledge.

Through keynote presentations, hands-on workshops, breakout discussion groups, and other interactive sessions, DrupalCon 2022 attendees will spend the four days connecting with a community of developers, marketers, and business leaders. Speakers and panelists consist of expert developers, agencies, and business leaders who have experienced the benefits of Drupal first hand and are ready to share their knowledge and expertise with others.

The show officially kicks off on Monday, April 25 at 9 a.m. PT and then closes out on Thursday, April 28 at 5 p.m. PT. Here's an overview of what you can expect each day:
