The Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit 2010 is in Vancouver BC this coming weekend on the 2nd and 3rd of October. I hope you are already Registered for this event as it is now Sold Out!

I will be at this event along with a few other colleagues from Vancouver, BC and Redmond. We will primarily be talking about WebMatrix

Here’s the session abstract:

Developing and maintaining Drupal sites on Windows has never been easy. From confounding permissions issues with IIS when you first set up Drupal to deployment on a shared or hosted environment. It's always been challenging.

Microsoft has been working hard to make Drupal easier and better on Windows. Both to develop Drupal sites on as well as simplifying the deployment of your Drupal sites on Windows in a hosted environment. In this session we won't tell you what the WebMatrix is, we'll show you. You will see how fast you can download and launch a new Drupal site using the Acquia distribution from the Windows Web Application Gallery. But you can use any Drupal distro so we'll show you how easy to do that too. We'll show you the database manager in WebMatrix for your MySQL data and we'll wrap up showing you how easy it is to deploy your Drupal site to hosted Windows.

If there is time left we'll show you the other things Microsoft has available for the Drupal Community at www.microsoft.com/web/drupal. Hope to see you there.

This session will be delivered by Mark Brown (Sr. Product Manager)

If you have questions about WebMatrix or running Drupal on Windows, come join us and we’ll be happy to speak to you about it! This session is on Sunday, October 3rd 2010.
