Holy cow… Drupal 10. It seems somewhat unfathomable that it’s here. To celebrate, the Drupal community is hosting parties all around the world! For those of us who are too far to travel to one, we’re throwing an online party!

What can I expect?

The online Drupal 10 launch party will start at 8am PT / 11am ET / 5pm CET / 9:30pm IST. It’ll be held over Zoom, and you’ll be able to find the link to this on the party’s website when the time comes.

The party will last at least 6 hours! For each of those hours, we have three speakers lined up to give short 10 minute talks. In between each talk, we’ll have time for socializing and chit chat.

Because this is over Zoom, we’re limited to 300 concurrent people. We’ll keep the website updated with status updates in the event we max out. All attendees are required to follow the Drupal code of conduct, and our hosts and moderators will be on hand to make sure things run smoothly. Note you’ll need a free Zoom account to attend.

Who’s speaking?

We have the schedule up on the website! Note that this is somewhat tentative and flexible. We’ll be shuffling and rearranging until the very end, I’m sure!

Speakers include myself, product manager Gábor Hojtsy, new Drupal Association CEO Tim Doyle, Baddý Sonja Breidert, Marine Gandy, Nicolas Loye, ECA creator Jürgen Haas, frontend framework manager Lauri Eskola, Joao Ventura, Drush maintainer Moshe Weitzman, Core accessibility maintainer Ben Mullins, Project Browser Initiative lead Leslie Glynn, Ted Bowman, John Faber, Brian Perry, Martin (million modules) Anderson-Clutz, and Jesus Manuel Olivas

In addition, we’re hoping to have a special guest kick off the festivities right when it starts!

Who’s organizing this?

This is a community organized event (with some support from the Drupal Association). In addition to our speakers, hosts, and moderators, the primary organizing committee is April Sides, AmyJune Hineline, Dan Lemon, and myself.

When is Drupal 10 actually going to be tagged and released?

To be honest, we don’t know the exact time. There’s a lot that goes on to do the release (thank you release managers!). The release window is December 13 1200 UTC to December 15 1200 UTC, which means if you’re east of the prime meridian, it might actually be released December 15th!
