If you work in the public sector and want to learn about the latest and greatest in Drupal, there’s no better place to go than the annual Drupal GovCon. The conference, held at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Library in Bethesda, MD, is one of the biggest Drupal conferences on the East coast. GovCon 2016 is taking place July 20-22 and will feature talks and sessions from some of the foremost Drupal leaders from around the world.

FFW is proud to be a gold sponsor of the event as well as offer two trainings. Additionally, FFW staff will be presenting two sessions, on the topics of Personalization Strategies for Government Websites and Managing CSS and JavaScript Files in Drupal 8 with Libraries. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that we’ll also be hosting a GovCon kick-off happy hour at our office in Washington DC. We hope to see you there!
