Drupal Europe is an effort from the European Drupalists. Drupal Portugal, after organizing DrupalDevdays is promoting DrupalEurope as the main European Drupal Event for 2018. Next year we will have Drupalcon back in Europe.

This was a recent presentation done by Rasmus Lerdorf (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rasmus_Lerdorf) in SAN FRANCISCO about PHP7.
