Summer set some record temperatures globally. With vacations and event planning going on our contributions cooled down a bit.

Blog posts

Always working on new content, during July we published a few interesting blog posts:


Several of us attended Drupal GovCon 2016 in Baltimore, Maryland, and it was great! While the days felt short, starting at 10 a.m. and only having a keynote and four presentation time slots (three on Friday), the variety and quality of the presentations more than made up for it. Videos for all three keynotes have been made available (see links on their homepage) and it's well worth taking the time to watch them.

That's all folks

That's it for July, we'll see you again next month.
