The launch of Drupal 9 is less than a week away, and that is cause for celebration. In the past, the Drupal community and the Drupal Association have organized a variety of celebrations across the globe. For Drupal 8’s launch we saw more than 200 release parties happen on six continents.
Celebrations in the time of COVID-19 are a much different affair; the world looks different than it did for Drupal 8’s launch in 2015.
But that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to celebrate!
For Drupal 9, the community has built CelebrateDrupal.org – a central hub for all of the virtual celebrations the community will undertake this year for the release of Drupal 9.
We encourage you to join in the fun!
You can post your virtual events for others to join, upload photos of your Drupal 9 cupcakes, or selfies of your celebration, or add video. We’ve also provided a complete brand kit with the updated Drupal brand, which you are welcome to use as part of your celebrations.
Finally, we’d love to have you join us for DrupalCon Global, from July 14-17, where we’ll be reflecting on the Drupal 9 launch as a community.
While we’re sad we can’t celebrate in person, we’re thrilled to celebrate with the whole Drupal community virtually following Drupal 9’s release on June 3rd. We’ll see you online!
