Informal gatherings (BoF)

Birds of a Feather sessions (or BoFs) are informal gatherings of like-minded individuals who wish to discuss a certain topic without a pre-planned agenda. For example, BoFs allow groups to meet and discuss issues relating to regular conference sessions and talk out common problems facing the community. But BoFs don't need to be about the community or even Drupal, they may also be held to share your local favourite chocolate or coffee with each other or discuss knitting patterns.

Have fun and learn! BoFs exist to provide attendees with an inclusive, informal environment in which to share ideas freely. BoFs can be serious, and a great way to gather the people you’ve been working with remotely on a project in a space to deep dive on a topic, but they can also be fun as well.

Drupal Europe was born in a series of BoF sessions so we of course provide several BoF spaces to schedule gatherings. Scheduled BoF sessions show up as part of the general daily schedule.

How to run a successful BoF

  • Be respectful of scheduled BoFs

  • Meet in the hallway or at lunch tables if all BoF spaces are reserved

  • Encourage participation from attendees and get everyone's input

  • Split the group if your BoF gets too big so everyone can be heard

  • Collaborate with BoF owners if you want to propose similar topics

  • Ask a speaker to mention your BoF if the topics are complementary to raise awareness

 

These kinds of BoFs will be moderated and removed

  • Lecture-like presentations, sales pitches, product demos, or marketing meetings

  • BoFs which violate the Code of conduct

Drupal in Government BoF

BoF
Industry track

Drupal is now being widely used in digital government projects around the world. But often the same things are being invented multiple times in multiple places.

Let's gather to share notes on what is being built where, what has been (or could be) open sourced — and see how we can better leverage the benefits of open source and open standards for the public good.
