The EvolveDrupal story

A unique opportunity

EvolveDrupal made its debut in May 2023 in Montreal, where it united professional communities in person for the first time in 2+ years. The summit’s success has grown quickly with further events in Toronto, Ottawa, and now Atlanta. We’ve hosted expert speakers from the tech, government, higher education, non-profit, and other sectors—including special guests like Dries Buytaert, the founder of Drupal.

Thank you

Everyone who made it a success

We couldn't have done with without the fantastic community that made it happen. A huge thank you to the speakers for sharing their expertise and knowledge over a whopping 27 sessions across three dedicated tracks.

Of course we couldn't have done it without our sponsors. Our deepest gratitude to Acquia, Pantheon, DubBot, HeroDevs, Zivtech, IfThen, and the Evolving Web Team for helping bring it to life. And a huge thanks to all our attendees!

Interested in sponsoring or presenting at the next summit? Reach out to us.
