The Drupal community is committed to making sure that Drupal is the most accessible framework for building websites that can be used by anyone, including people with disabilities.

Drupal offers a range of built-in tools and third-party modules that help you create accessible websites. But did you know that it also facilitates an accessible content editing experience out of the box that you can build on?

Drupal core initiative leads keynote

Drupal core initiative leads keynote

Drupal 8's continuous innovation cycle resulted in amazing improvements that made today's Drupal stand out far above Drupal 8.0.0 as originally released. Drupal core initiatives played a huge role in making that transformation happen. In this keynote, various initiative leads will take turns to highlight new capabilities, challenges they faced on the way and other stories from core development.

Giving back

Drupal Developers Days Ghent is the perfect moment to give back code to the community or helping it grow. You can contribute to Drupal core & contrib modules all week or you can become a contribution mentor. Even if you are not a developer, you can help with testing or brainstorming, you don't even have to actually be part of the contribution before. You can also help by joining the Birds of a Feather sessions, create relationships with others and come up with new ideas!

Sign up as a volunteer

During the event there are several tasks where the team can use some help from the community. Examples include building up, room monitoring, check-in desk, and cleaning up afterwards. If you would like to help, please let us know by signing up using the form below.
