An Avalanche of Amazing Occurrences

This has been an almost absurdly busy news week for Drupal and Acquia. It’s like riding on a freight train, strapped to the front of the engine, traveling at 100 mph (*). Just to sum up:

Acquia’s CTO and my highly esteemed co-worker Dries Buytaert was named one of the Top Tech Entrepreneurs Under 30 by BusinessWeek magazine. Way to go, Dries!

  • Drupal is a Webware 100 Award Winner. Way to go, Drupal community! If you will be in San Francisco this week, join us at the Webware Party at Web 2.0 in San Francisco, Thu Apr 24 16:30 – 18:00 (PDT), Web 2.0 Expo official Booth Crawl. The event is free; register online with the promo code: “websf08wbw”.

  • Following the Drupal Paris Testing Sprint, Drupal now has a testing framework in core. This is an incredibly important milestone for the Drupal community and one that I hope will have far-reaching positive implications for Drupal’s future stability and capability.

  • I will be presenting Drupal at the Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco Launch Pad event on Thursday, April 24, 2008. You can attend this event for free as well; follow the link for details.

Life here at Acquia is definitely picking up speed.

(*) If I lived in Europe, I would have said 200 mph.
