Over the past 10 years, the web has changed dramatically. Website designs have gone from table layouts to responsive, multi-resolution, user-focused experiences. Development has moved from scripts and hacks to large, stable, and expansive frameworks.
DrupalCon Prague is now a distant but fond memory, and we want thank all of the Delivery Partners who were there for their support and commitment to Drupal Commerce. We also want to take this opportunity to update everyone on our progress with the Drupal Commerce Delivery Partner Program.
Join us in the Commerce Village, part of DrupalCon Prague, September 23-27
Prague offers beer, bridges, Bohemian charm... and for one week only, the finest minds in eCommerce. Come join them, and learn how to cross over from Drupal Mistr to Commerce Mistr. Here's how:

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Commerce Village at DrupalCon Portland to drink, see demos, and meet the folks who make Drupal Commerce thrive. We had some great sessions, too, both in our Village Square and in the main conference.
If you couldn't make it, don't worry: we recorded all the sessions and have posted them to our site. And although there were some only-at-DrupalCon opportunities, home-schooled Drupalistas won't remain empty-handed! Read on....
