Live in the Midwest and like Drupal? So do we! Or at least some of our team. And as such we'll be attending the annual Twin Cities DrupalCamp in force this year.
As a resident of Minneapolis I've been attending this camp regularly since its inception and it's always been a great opportunity to meet other local Drupal developers and to interact with those that I've known for years. Every year I'm delighted at the number of people who come to learn about Drupal. Last year we had nearly 300 people attend the camp. This year is shaping up to be just as good and myself, Andrew, and Emma will all be in attendance and would love to meet you. In addition to being there in person, we're happy to be a Gold sponsor this year, and we'll be giving away a free annual membership to Drupalize.Me as well!
I've also been participating in helping to organize the camp this year in a much larger capacity. I've normally poked my head in a bit here and there, but this year I've been involved with the entire session selection process: soliciting session submissions, helping to choose sessions, and contacting presenters. It's been a great way to get to know more of the people in the local community. We used the camp website for much of the content selection process and this year I also helped to build the website as well.
It's fun to get to meet people face-to-face rather than from the other side of the Internet. This camp is a great chance to meet our trainers as they do their thing in person. I dare say we're at least as much fun, if not more-so, in person.
The Drupalize.Me team will be presenting the following sessions:
- Workflow for Solo Developers and Small Teams - Emma Jane Westby
- What I Wish Someone Had Told Me In the Beginning - Joe Shindelar
- The Business of Drupal - Andrew Wilson
I am really exited about the great content from all the speakers. And, unlike past years where we waited till the last minute to schedule everything, we're ahead of the curve this year and have already put together a complete schedule for the weekend.
Free PSD to Theme Workshop
Last year Emma was the keynote speaker at the camp and during her presentation announced that she would be open-sourcing her PSD to Theme workshop. This year Emma and Joe will be teaching a version of the PSD to Theme workshop that is completely free to the first 30 camp attendees that signup for the workshop. There was only one seat left at the time this blog post was written, so signup and get the last seat now (if it's not already too late)!
We're looking forward to seeing you at the camp in a couple of weeks. Be sure to say "hello"!
