Marking its first appearance in San Francisco, Calif., DrupalCon 2010 will take place April 19-21, 2010 at the Moscone Center. DrupalCon is the premier conference for Drupal, the award-winning open source content management framework that is galvanizing social publishing and web development today. Session proposals will be accepted through February 15.

The Drupal social publishing system has been downloaded over 2 million times since its inception, and project growth has doubled annually for several years. Drupal is used to deliver a wide variety of application types including single or multi-user blogs, wikis, community networks, digital media portals, and web content publishing and management.

The hot topic at DrupalCon San Francisco 2010 will be Drupal 7, the latest, greatest, feature packed and easiest to use version of Drupal. Dries Buytaert, Drupal's original creator and project lead, will offer one of the first keynotes for the event.

For the first time ever at a DrupalCon event, this year's conference will feature hands-on training classes covering how to use and build web sites using the Drupal social publishing system. Classes will be taught by some of the leading Drupal development experts and training companies.
