Drupal, a free and open-source web content management system is dramatically changing how businesses, non-profits, governments and the education sector operate online.
Following on the success of similar Business Summits held in NY, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta and Washington D.C., the Toronto Drupal Business Summit will bring together Sr. IT, Marketing and Content Strategy professionals to exchange best practices and hear from industry leaders about how the adoption of an open-source content management strategy has revolutionized their web strategy.
The free event is being held at the Spoke Club in downtown Toronto with the support of several sponsors specializing in open-source web and mobile development.
The Toronto Drupal Business Summit will bring together real-world professionals to learn about Drupal and open source software. Speakers will share insights from Canadian Drupal implementations, lessons learned, and share insight into best practices.
Guest speakers include Gerry Dimnik, CIO of the Royal Conservatory of Music, Pritesh Gandhi, Sr. Manager of Digital Strategy and BMO Group, James Walker, co-author of Using Drupal, and Benoit Marchand, Manager of the PHP/Drupal Practice Team at CGI Interactive.
With a variety of formats, including keynote presentations, case studies, and breakout groups, attendees will hear from leaders who have adopted open-source solutions to enable their web and mobile strategy.
“We hope to make this the first of a series of Business Summits exploring the power of open-source software platforms,” said Dustin Walper, co-founder of Myplanet, a web and mobile user experience firm and the event’s Title Sponsor. “The potential of these open-source platforms is almost limitless. As more enterprises, organizations and agencies adopt open source, it will be essential to bring leaders together to exchange best practices and expand their networks,” Walper continued.
