The year 2009 is starting pretty strong with a lot of events in the Drupal community. The first one for me will be DrupalCamp Germany in Köln this coming week-end, closely followed by DrupalCamp San Diego in a week. DrupalCamp Germany will be the first national Drupal event in the country, and got a lot of attention from being mentioned on Dries Buytaert's blog. DrupalCamp San Diego is also starting its first edition with a nice schedule of presentations and a documentation sprint hosted by add1sun!
A few reports have already been written about the "Fields in Core" coding sprint that was held December 15th - 19th at the Acquia offices in Andover, Massachusetts. While some of them are more technical, I decided to try to give you a good idea of what we spent our time doing. For the more technical ones check the "field in core" group.
