Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather sessions (or BoFs) are an integral part of many Drupal conferences. They’re where like-minded people come together to discuss a certain topic without a pre-planned agenda. We’ll be providing a space for BoFs and will have a whiteboard located in the main mezzanine for planning and scheduling BoF sessions.
