Help bring (more) PHP to DrupalCon

€1,525 of €1,500 goal

Raised by 34 people in 16 months
In contrast to many professional PHP conferences, DrupalCon does not generally cover travel and accommodation costs for speakers. The result is that there are some experts we never get to meet at our events. The Drupal Association isn't currently in a position to change this, but we think this could be a pretty easy win for the community.

To begin to change this, we invited a couple of leading non-Drupalist PHP practitioners to DrupalCon Vienna (and they've had sessions accepted!), but they need our financial support to attend DrupalCon.

They are people we can learn a lot from: they've built tools that are essential to Drupal, they have perspectives and experience to share, and we can take the chance to show them how awesome we are, too!

They've done a lot for our community, now let's make them part of our community!

These folks want to come to DrupalCon, but need our support to cover their costs:

- Sebastian Bergmann, creator/maintainer PHPUnit, author of numerous PHP and QA books, co-Founder thePHP.cc 

- Michelle Sanver, Developer at L//p in Switzerland, focus areas in PHP, Neo4j, ElasticSearch, JavaScript and enabling others. President of @phpwomen. Here's a 2016 interview with Michelle. 

We've generously estimated the cost of getting these European PHP experts to DrupalCon and putting them up while they are in Vienna. We will transparently account for their expenses to funders of this campaign and donate and remaining funds to the Drupal Association.

A day and a half into our "official" campaign to help our PHP expert speakers, Sebastian Bergmann and Michelle Sanver, come share with us at DrupalCon Vienna and we're about two-thirds of the way there!

Thank you for all your support, donations, and social media promotion.

If you can spare the time for another tweet, a post or a blog somewhere telling people what we're up to, we'd be grateful for your help.

Thank you and see you in Vienna!

- Campbell Vertesi and Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire
