We are so excited that DrupalCon Portland was such an amazing success with more than 3,300 attendees, phenomenal speakers, and so many great community events where everyone bonded and had fun. And, as DrupalCon Portland comes to an end, we are very pleased to announce that our next North American DrupalCon will be held in Austin,Texas on June 2-6, 2014 at the Austin Convention Center.
It's Day 3 of DrupalCon, and so much has happened in the last 72 hours! From keynotes and two full days of recorded sessions, gallons of Stumptown, and let's be honest, sore feet from all the walking... well take a deep breath, because it's not over yet!
So, here's what happened yesterday...
We built a website to help the tornado victims in Oklahoma
On Tuesday night, a team of volunteer Drupal developers gathered in the DrupalCon Portland coder lounge to build a website to help FEMA help the victims of the Oklahoma tornado.
Here comes the rain! DrupalCon Portland welcomes our attendees to Day 2, with breakfast sandwiches (look for the big black truck across the street from the Oregon Convention Center) and of course, cold and dreary Portland rain. Grab a Drupal branded hoodie and KeepCup from the DrupalCon bookstore (in room C121) to keep warm between sessions and so fellow Drupalers can spot you when running around the city later this week completing missions from our Photo Scavenger Hunt.

We'll be streaming each of our three keynotes live beginning on Tuesday, with Dries' infamous #DriesNote at11:30am PDT (Pacific Daylight Time, PDT | UTC -7).
Have a burning question you want to ask our keynotes? Michael Anello from the Drupal Easy podcast will be fielding and moderating your twitter questions in real time, to ask Dries, Karen, and Michael, following each presentation.
DrupalCon Portland is off with a bang! Over 1,270 people have already arrived to pick up their badges and DrupalCon tshirts, and we're expecting as many attendees to arrive tomorrow.
Today alone, over 498 training attendees rolled in, as well as nearly 90 attendees for the CXO event. We're expecting over 3,300 people to attend the conference this week, so don't get stuck in line, get here early and grab your badge before sessions start at 9:00am.

The people have spoken, and the DA has answered! There will now be an AV equipped BoF room devoted to the Art of Project Management in its many forms.
