Registration for Florida DrupalCamp 2012 is now open!
This year, we are beefing up our sessions with even more open source goodness, and adding a special nonprofit track!
February 11 – 12, 2012
Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida
What is Drupal? - Drupal is an open source modular platform used to build everything from personal blogs to enterprise applications. Whitehouse.gov, Grammys.com, Florida Hospital, wyomingcountyunitedway.org, Popsci.com and hundreds of other businesses, government agencies and nonprofit organization sites use Drupal because it is free, flexible, and is constantly being improved by the hundreds of thousands of dedicated developers that are part of the Drupal Community.
Day 1: Multi-track Learning Experience
Beginner Track - Enthusiasts, first-timers, non-programmers, webmasters, and marketing people, as well as anyone tasked with updating sites will benefit from these sessions to provide a practical overview of Drupal. You’ll learn the basics, get practical tips, tap into great resources and gain insight as a real site is built before your eyes.
Dedicated Drupal Hands-On tracks for programmers, webmasters, themers and others seeking to get insight and best practices from the brightest Drupallers we know. These sessions are the heart of Florida DrupalCamp, and this year will also feature valuable sessions on new features in Drupal 7.
Rollins Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Center is contributing to a track for non-technical people, decision makers, and those who need to get a better understanding of what Drupal can do. You’ll learn the basic principals, benefits, and challenges in using Drupal with popular social media tools and the advantages of the platform and its dedicated developer community.
Birds of a Feather sessions presented in a dedicated room throughout the day where you can get help, get some work done, or create your own unconference.
Networking – After the last screen goes dark, the Florida DrupalCamp social scene lights up with an evening designed for fun and fellowship in Winter Park. It’s a chance to get to know the experts, meet the newbies, and develop a few new friendships.
Day 2: Site building sprint for a cause
3nd Annual "Coding for a Cause". This year, we will be building a site for a 501(c)3 organization based on an open selection process. The organization that is chosen will receive a customized Drupal website built by dozens of volunteers in an all-day marathon Drupal coding event on Feb 12th. Anyone who wishes to get involved, or volunteer to project manage a site project should use the contact form on FLDrupalCamp.org.
