We're pleased to announce Drupal Everywhere: Making Mobile Websites with Drupal, a one-day conference on Saturday, November 20, 2010. Thanks to our sponsors, this event is free and open to the public. Drupal Everywhere is being sponsored by Exaltation of Larks, the Spring Arts Tower and individual members of the LA Drupal community.
The first part of the training, which is an overview of basic theory of building mobile-accessible websites, is followed by a practical, hands-on component that steps through the practice of making mobile websites with the popular Drupal framework. The practical component will require basic PHP, CSS and Drupal knowledge.
What to bring
Bring your laptop, an open mind and, if possible, power strips. There will be wireless Internet provided. If you have special needs, please contact the LA Drupal managers in advance of the event.
You can also follow @ladrupal on Twitter for updates.
How to help
There are costs involved in running this event, from organizing food to printing schedules, and additional sponsorships are immensely appreciated and all contributions go directly towards funding conference operation costs. Any funds not used for the camp will donated to the the LA Drupal Association for other events and infrastructure, promotion and distribution needs. Thank you!
