Good news! The next Drupal conference (DrupalCon) will take place in Szeged, Hungary from August 27-30. If you want to learn more about Drupal, or if you want to capture and absorb the passion and enthusiasm behind the Drupal project, this is the place to be.

DrupalCon Szeged will bring together hundreds of Drupal users and developers from all around the world. Whether you are a Drupal professional or an enthusiastic user coming to find out more, you're invited to join us in Szeged. Mark your calendars!

This will be the first Drupal conference in Central Europe, and I'm excited by that. There are a lot of Drupal people in Central Europe, probably more so than in Western Europe, and this is a great way to reach out them. Plus, I've been to Hungary twice and liked it very much.

Next Drupalcon in the North-America will be in 2009.

But you might be surprised about the participation costs. If budget is the issue you can find some really cheap transatlantic flights (e.g. 600-800 dollar) to Dublin, London or Brussels (check out and the likes) and then take a low cost carrier from there to Budapest.

There will be hostel rooms for EUR 10-12/night and living costs in general are lower.

You could also make it your summer holiday ;)
