Important Update: registration is now closed. If you are signing up for the event after 4pm Saturday August 23 [Eastern Daylight Time, GMT -4], you will be considered on the waiting list. You will hear from us closer to the event to let you know if there is space for you
Important Update #2: Thanks to those that have removed themselves from the list allowing us to include more than half those on the waiting list. If you registered for the event before Sept 1st, you are on the official attendance list. We're sorry that we can't accommodate everyone that wanted to attend.
The group has voted, the space is reserved. All we need now is you (and some bagels and pizza -- see note below if you're interested in sponsoring the event).
NYC DrupalCamp 5 event will take place Saturday & Sunday, September 13th and 14th, 2008 at Polytechnic University.
NYC Drupal Camps are free events, but we do need some sponsors in order to make it happen. Please get in touch with Eric to discuss sponsoring the event. As we have done in the past, any funds left over after we cover the costs of the event will be either donated to the Drupal Association or held to cover expenses of the next camp.
When :: Saturday & Sunday, September 13th and 14th, 2008 10am-6pm
Where :: Polytechnic University Brooklyn Campus - Building A
Six Metrotech Center, Brooklyn, NY 11201
At the last DrupalCamp in the spring with the help of a few others, I did an intro to Drupal session, which people really seemed to value, and I'd love to do this again.
One change that's been suggested is to do a separate session first, probably for an hour or 1 1/2 hrs, to help people set up a development environment on their own laptop using Xampp for Windows or MAMP for Macs. This took a long time last time round, and some people already had it, or didn't want to do it - they were happy just watching.Read more
Before the last drupal camp, we discussed using our drupal group for the next one, which now is around the corner.
Unless there are objections to moving away from the barcamp wiki to groups.drupal.org, I will upload some content in the next day or two and get things moving.
To promote continued growth of our local community i would like to start providing some "free" stuff to the group. I havent identified just what is it that we need to help us grow, but lets not have this put a stop to our plans.
Here are some of the things that i believe may/will be useful for our group:Read more
