Growing A Drupal Shop
This is a fun and interactive one to three hour workshop for companies trying to grow their business and be more profitable.
Running a Drupal Shop and running ragged?
This is a mini-workshop and dialog on how to grow a Drupal company. If you are a small shop trying to get to the next level, this might be the right place for you. This is an interactive and participatory, not a preach-n-teach only 3-hour track. We find out how others are succeeding and struggling so we can all grow together. Normally a full-day workshop, we cover a lot of ground rapidly so this is perfect for shop owners on the go.
