At DrupalCon I arranged for a 9 metre squared floor decal celebrating the top 1000 contributors to Drupal 8. So many of you asked for access to the original artwork, and many who could not be at the conference, so I have prepared this page so you can!
It was such a delight to witness so many Drupalists, with a great sense of pride, photographing theirs and friends names, sharing on social media. The larger a name is, the more they have contributed. But honestly if your name is there, bravo to you!
Below the tag cloud is clickable so you can reach each persons D.O account. There is also attached a PDF version so you can print it if you like.
I used DrupalCores.com for source data and Tagul.com to produce the artwork. I hope you enjoyed seeing it and look forward to seeing you at future Drupal events.
Last night NWUG held an evening of Lightning Talks at Madlab in Manchester. These are small talks that last up to 10 minutes long or can be run in the Pecha Kucha format with 20 slides in 6 minutes (1 slide every 20 seconds).
For me lightning talks are brilliant. In one evening you get to hear a wide palette of topics, discover from a high level subjects you might like to explore afterwards. They gave the opportunity for first time speakers to presenting in front of a friendly audience. It showed what a diverse and healthy Drupal community we in Manchester. Attracting 25 people, it was also the best turnout we've had in a while.
There were so many stepping up to speak that we ran out of time. There will be more lightning talks at NWDUG in November, so perhaps if you were inspired or curious and would like to join us, come along next time and see what it's all about!
