I know it’s hard to believe I’ve never been to a DrupalCon, but it’s true. I’ve wanted to attend others, honest, but the opportunities just weren’t available at the time. Needless to say, I was very excited about attending the Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit in my hometown of Portland.
Here are a few brief take-aways from the session:

Read on for some presentation highlights and takeaways.
This session led by Amye Scavarda, a project manager at Acquia, focused on how to switch gears after a project launch to support the project lifecycle and how to build support into projects. Read on for some of the key takeaways.
