Prepare to start in the middle
Help your peers get up to speed before Drupalcon so that while at Drupalcon you can more quickly go beyond “getting everybody on the same page” and move on to making decisions and defining next steps.
It helps getting this info out there before Drupalcon because Drupalcon itself is where you then get together to decide and agree on path(s) forward.
Help people prepare so that you can start in the middle.
Maybe the feedback forces a restart from scratch after all because the problem is actually a different one than initially imagined. That’s still a win :)
Drupalcon is a great way to connect with the known experts and to onboard new experts.
Let us know what you hope to achieve.
