This year’s DrupalCon North America 2021 keynotes highlight the power of the global Drupal community to make a difference in some of the most crucial issues of our time and the future of digital experiences. Register today.

The Drupal Association is planning a blockbuster event for DrupalCon North America, the most widely attended Drupal event, 12-16 April from 11:00 - 15:00 EDT daily. This year’s all-virtual event brings together Drupal experts, enthusiasts, end users, and the broader open source software community to connect, collaborate, and contribute to advancing Drupal - the world’s leading open source digital experience platform (DXP).

Heather Rocker, executive director of the Drupal Association states, “Our global community of developers, marketers, and business leaders come to DrupalCon to connect, learn about the experiences of their peers, and share their own expertise. DrupalCon participants also benefit from the opportunity to learn from our keynote and featured speakers. This year, those topics include the role of open source in schools to close the digital divide, the importance of allyship in developing diversity and inclusion, building successful mentorship for people of color in tech, and understanding digital rights as human rights.”

Featured keynotes will highlight inclusion, closing the digital divide, and the Drupal platform’s future.
