What to expect at DrupalCamp
DrupalCamp Colorado is June 11th and 12th in downtown Denver at the Auraria Higher Education Center and we thought it'd be helpful to let you know a bit of what to expect beyond FUN.
42 sessions in two days running four simultaneously! From intro to Drupal and beginning themes to a hard-core, in-depth render API talk. You can expect to learn some great things from sessions presented by your peers from the local and international community.
Birds of a Feather
... flock together, or gather together and talk about whatever they like! While the conference offers typical single-speaker presentations, BOFs are a great way to make the camp be about what you want to learn or share. [Submit and organize a BoF](/program/bofs)
You can expect complimentary drinks, more great community, and c4rl on the tables spinning tracks between 80 and 110 bpms.
Hosting on the Auraria Higher Education Center was great for us because of the location and price, but it's also a big campus and parking isn't great. Check out the travel page for details on the location and parking.
Coffee, tea, and pastries in the mornings, great food for lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and a bit of coffee and tea both afternoons. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options at lunch will be separate and labeled.
Be sure to visit your profile on the site and complete the information under "Edit" > "Personal information" as some of that information will be added to your badge to help folks get to know each other by looking at badges.
Your badge will be required to attend sessions and the evening parties.
Code sprints are a great way to focus the collective energy back on to the software to squash bugs or write the future of Drupal. A Commerce contrib and COD sprint are happening on the Friday before the camp.
There are almost always giveaways.
Most of all it's the community
Drupal is made up of a super-strong world-wide community, but even locally in Colorado or your own area the community can be strong. That strength is always apparent at our local conferences and meetups, so expect to meet a lot of new friends and have a great time.
Many thanks to you for signing up and joining us, our volunteers for helping, and our many sponsors for what will be a wonderful DrupalCamp! See you June 11th and 12th!
