While at DrupalCon Denver, I met up with Florian Loretan (@floretan) to get the specifics on DrupalCon Munich. Some of the details he talks about include: the dates, who the keynote speakers will be and pricing. Registration is open now, so go register!

I also got to talk with Barry Jaspan (@bjaspan) about the recently announced permanently free developer tier of Acquia Cloud. We also talked a bit about what the future holds for the standard managed cloud service. This is really great stuff!
