Best Event Registration Module?

Greetings everyone. Can someone who works on the great FLDRUPALCAMP site tell me the registration module used? Or otherwise advise me on event registration. We are a Florida nonprofit organization and collect donations via paypal. I need to set up registrations for our upcoming 3-day Summit in October in a manner very similar to the way the camp is done. Our website is sjr2c.org.

Thanks for any help you can offer. Missing the Brevard meetups... nothing much happening in Volusia County...

Looking for help at DrupalCon Baltimore

Hey everyone,

We're looking for an additional Drupaler to help us in the Beginner Class at DrupalCon Baltimore:
https://events.drupal.org/baltimore2017/training/absolute-beginners-guid...

We've done this training for about 8 years now, but ... good news! ... Baltimore is turning out to be far more popular than other years.

So we need an extra pair of hands on Monday, April 24. You won't need to teach or prepare anything. The role will be to circulate and help students with questions, plus bug-shooting their problems.

Our schedule is live! Check it out at https://www.fldrupal.camp/schedule/sat

Register Today at https://www.fldrupal.camp/

We’re so fortunate to have all types of great speakers! Thank you to all who applied.

Speaking of Alligators…

We’re going to have live alligators! Yes, you read that correct. This is Florida. This is what we do. We also may have a puppy, but we promise we won’t let them play together.

We’re doing Lightning Talks!

The last “real” session on Saturday is lightning talks. This is where you (or anyone) comes up and presents what they want for 5 minutes. These will mostly be technical, but can really be anything PG rated.

Code Sprint on Sunday

It’s hard to explain just how fun code sprints are (because the name certainly doesn’t sound fun). But trust us, it’s a great way to meet new friends, learn Drupal, and contribute back.

Register! There’s only 9 days until the camp! https://www.fldrupal.camp/
