Myplanet Digital is presenting the Drupal Business Summit Series in Toronto, Chicago, and New York. Toronto’s event will run on May 29 and is free to attend. There are limited spaces, but you can still register here.
“As more enterprises, non-profits and government organizations move towards open source tools, such as Drupal, we are seeing an increased demand for understanding how to leverage these tools in real-world business scenarios," explains Jason Cottrell, the managing director of Myplanet. "Drupal can lower the total cost of ownership while remaining dynamic and adaptable to different types of mobile and non-mobile device types, which is why the demand is growing so quickly.”
Held at the trendy Hotel Ocho, the conference will discuss responsive design, capturing community, and of course Drupal, to name but a few topics. Myplanet Digital says that guests will leave with an understanding of why major organizations like The House and Warner Music have turned to Drupal to support their online initiatives.
There will also Emmy-nominated CTO Michael Meyers speaking with other open source and open data technologists from Microsoft, Duo Consulting, and Myplanet Digital itself.
It should be noted that many Canadian cities have recently begun open data projects like Toronto and Hamilton. Open data is being embraced at both the governmental and corporate levels and will no doubt continue to play a major role in shaping the future of the Internet.
This year’s focus of the summit will be, not surprisingly, on mobile and social.
