    The summer of Drupal 7 has been both interesting and informative. I want to thank the IndieCommerce team and the many individual store contacts who have worked hard to identify and squash bugs, discover surprises, and help ABA appreciate the many ways in which stores use their websites.

    Because the upgrade from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 has a lot of moving parts of interest to users, we have set-up a variety of ways to share the information you need to know. These include the IndieCommunication updates, twice weekly conference calls, an upcoming series of webinars, and in-person sessions and one-on-one meetings at BookExpo America.

    In order to ensure that members have multiple ways to learn about platform upgrade news, beyond email blasts and newsletters, we will be holding a regular series of conference calls hosted by Technology Director Neil Strandberg.

    BookExpo America (BEA) is fast approaching-the show is Wednesday, May 28 to Saturday, May 31-and we hope that you or someone from your staff is planning to attend. Everyone at IndieCommerce looks forward to meeting with so many of you face-to-face at the show. This year, we strongly encourage that you send the employees that are most involved with your IndieCommerce site.
