It is a tradition at Debug Academy to take time out of our busy schedules to attend DrupalCon. We do it because we enjoy immersing ourselves in a community of like-minded individuals that come together with a common cause, like the continuous improvement of open source projects/code. It also gives us the opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with alumni, colleagues, and community friends.

Debug Academy Drupal experts are teaming up to share a variety of tips, tricks, and Drupal insights to help progress the careers of our community members. We are looking forward to continuing to help people advance in their own journey, beyond the doors of Debug Academy, by giving training sessions and talks at DrupalCon. 


Make sure you get to Minneapolis early, because Debug Academy team members will be leading three training sessions at this year’s DrupalCon.
