KWALL joined 3,000 drupal enthusiasts in Portland for DrupalCon 2013. The annual gathering is the hallmark event for the Drupal community in the US. As a sponsor and exhibitor we met some very bright individuals, shared thoughts on open-source technology, and stayed out way to late at some very fun after parties. The real buzz of the event concerned the upcoming release of Drupal 8, which is likely for a stable release in Q1 of 2014. As such, attendees found no shortage of D8 related sessions with topics covering twig, entities, and context/panels.
