The epic story of the last week of how Drupal’s frontend and backend look changed after 11 years at DrupalCon Portland
Last week was DrupalCon Portland, our first in-person big DrupalCon back together with 1300+ attendees.

On April 25–28, 1,300 Drupalists came together in Portland, Oregon for the first in-person DrupalCon in more than two years. Even though this is just half of the event’s usual attendance (covid is still to blame), we were beyond excited to finally see our friends and partners in person. Nothing beats hanging out face to face. The pandemic may have caused the event’s usual crowd to shrink, but the number
