WHAT IS DRUPAL CAMP?!?
Modeled in the camp unconference structure, drupalcamp is a no-holds-bars discussion, workshop/code-a-thon involving the open source content management system Drupal. at drupalcamp you ask the questions and the experts provide the answers. at drupalcamp you discover your solutions to your most pressing problems. like previous drupalcamps, there will be a number of break out rooms…
Day 1: After a meet and greet we will split off into 4 rooms (3 if we have a lack of sessions).
* Beginners Room: Several advanced Drupal Ninja's will take shifts in this room covering the basics of Drupal and its various systems.
* Sessions 1: Room available for proposed sessions throughout the day these will cover intermediate concepts of Drupal and Howtos - Please Propose a session - Anyone can teach!
* Sessions 2: Room available for proposed sessions throughout the day these will cover intermediate concepts of Drupal and Howtos - Please Propose a session - Anyone can teach!
* Advanced Room: This is where the ninjas hang out. They might write a module for drupal - or hold a patch marathon, or just get drunk on power and Redbull.
Day 2: We scale things back a little here.
* Sessions 1: Same as yesterday.
* Advanced Room: Macguyver uses Drupal and duct tape to keep the plane from crashing.
* Optional Third Room: Tell us why we should open it up!
