This semester, Drupalcon will be held in Washington DC. In case you don't know or you live under a rock, Drupalcon is THE event for Drupal developers. Right now, its sold out with 1400+ Drupal enthusiasts converging under one roof.
This is my first ever Drupalcon (and certainly will not be my last ever!). I am so anxious to meet fellow Drupal developers and finally put a name to their Drupal ID or IRC nick. It's so weird...you collaborate with these guys/girls all the time and yet I have never met them.
