Con esta reunión cerramos el ciclo de reuniones presenciales.
Participantes: @Joyita, @rquilca, @juanlema, @develCuy y demos la bienvenida a Ronald Chilquillo (@ghiace)
Aprovecho para comentar que @ghiace se mostró super pilas y enganchado con la organización, alegra mucho saber que se puede contar con gente como el para organizar el evento.
- Los organizadores garantizan el espacio y la difusión del evento, pero los participantes(grupos/comunidades) arman las sesiones(ponencias, charlas, presentaciones, install fest, exhibiciones, etc).
Currently there are three teams participating: Joomla!, WordPress and Drupal. Anyway this CMS Showdown still call for participation from other CMS. The event is not actual competition but fun event of porting prototype theme to each CMS within the BarCamp night. All results from the Showdown will be released as GPL.Read more

I attempted to organize a "DrupalCon" last year in Australia with mixed results, and learned quite a lot. Several people in the Australian community are pushing to organize a "DrupalCon" again and I am aware that other people in this region and others are keen to do the same.
This highlights several issues with the current arrangements for organizing international/regional drupal events and how the community and the association work with them.Read more
We are in the early stages of planning an Atlanta Drupalcamp, and wanted to reach out to see if other camp organizers had best practices, tips, ideas, etc. to share. More specifically, I was wondering if anyone has kept any old notes or a checklist of tasks they could share. I've been digesting the BoF notes and organizer's guide, but since this is our first camp any further direction would be welcomed from more experienced camp leaders.
We have tentatively secured a facility from a local university and are targeting a September timeline (2 weeks before or after Drupalcon Europe).Read more

I've searched around and come up short. Can anyone tell me if dc2009.drupalcon.org was built on an existing conference module or installation profile?
On the train ride to the airport after Drupalcon D.C I met up with two Drupal themers from different parts of the country. We had a discussion regarding Drupalcon and the design and theming elements of it. He had a decent suggestion to encourage more growth. He suggested putting on a mini Themer-con that was designed only for Designers/Themers/UI folks.
We talked about it and then thought that maybe at Drupalcon Paris there could be an internal Themercon. Essentially we take one or two rooms and making them the theming presentation rooms.Read more
We are planning on supporting remote presentations again at the Open Media Camp. We did this at last year's Drupal Camp Colorado and were able to get all but one remote presenter connected during the camp. The one problem came because that person didn't test the VNC, iChat, or Skype connection ahead of time. Testing is key to this since every location has different firewall and packet shaping configurations.Read more

This post is an open discussion on the future of Drupalcon management. After Drupalcon Boston held in March, 2008 it became clear that Drupalcon was (is) growing at a rapid rate and that the underlying management infrastructure needs an upgrade. Changes were made for Drupalcon Europe as well as for Drupalcon D.C (2009) and these have proven to be successful. The process still needs to evolve such that we not only meet the demands of the attendees (expected to be 1,200 strong at D.C) but give these attendees the high quality conference they expect. In short, we can and should do more.Read more
Two-Day Crash Course
In two days, participants will build from scratch a rock solid, commercially supported, aesthetically pleasing community website with an online store, without writing a single line of custom code.Read more
UPDATE: Now our space-time continuum has been corrected to allow visits to both DrupalCon and Har2009 this is the time to get yourself a ticket, double check that camping gear in the attic and let me know if you'll be able to come!
August 13-16 2009 Hacking at Random, the next iteration in a 20 year long tradition of open air hacking events will be held in Vierhouten, the Netherlands. These events are (self)organized every 4 years (2 years after every ccc-camp) and are every geeks dream in cool presentations, workshops and technology phun in every way imaginable. I will be there for sure and I post this to find out if there are more Drupal people interested in coming to this event and possibly help to organize a Community Village.
Depending on the number of volunteers and contributers I can imagine anything from just a bunch of small tents gathered around a Drupal Flag drinking beers in the sun to getting some bigger event tents to hold getting started sessions, (security) code sprints or a CMS hacking face off.
