Welcome to the Drupal Event Organization group. Here we share meetup, camp, regional conference, and international conference organization tips and tricks. The event calendar should be used to announce events, not this group. Feel free to share your tips about successful events and plans, find partners to organize meetups.
There are some lists of tips for event organization:
- Drupal Camp Organizing Guide v.2
- Drupal User Group Best Practices
- DrupalCon Organizers Guidelines
- Notes from DrupalCon Boston Event Organizer BOF
Registration is open for the first DrupalCamp ever in Spain. Yes, you are right, it will not be the first drupal meeting in Spain: we had a GREAT Drupalcon in Barcelona on 2007. However, this will be a Camp, the first DrupalCamp in Spain. It will be held in the same venue as the event in 2007, the Citilab, so some of you already know what this means: an excellent venue to have hundreds of drupalistas talk, work, sharing, hiring, eating, learning, etc. on Drupal.
We already had 430+ pre-registrations and REGISTRATION is now OPEN! (the venue can hold "only" 400 people, so....)
Don't miss it. There will be 4 session tracks. At least one of them in English. It might be two tracks in English if enough sessions are proposed. We will also have a job fair and already know that many web shops will be hiring. Don't miss it!
Check the schedule for the three days of camp: 26, 27 and 28 of February, 2010, in Barcelona, and then propose and/or vote your sessions.Read more

Thanks to everyone who came out to Drupalcamp Atlanta! I've posted a recap, and included some key lessons learned for future Drupalcamp organizers here:
If you attended DCA (and not already completed), please provide feedback via this survey:
I'd like to propose Cambridge, UK, for a DrupalCon.
It's a university town with over a thousand years of geek credibility, has great transport links, and is big enough to accommodate a DrupalCon, but small enough to make it feel like Drupal Town once we're all there - I really liked that aspect of Szged. Also it's an interesting place that overseas Drupal people will want to visit, and close enough to London to easily make day trips to the capital.
I think the UK Drupal community can put together something for 2011, but I think we'll do a much better job if we aim for 2012 instead.Read more
As part of its role of supporting the Drupal project, the Drupal Association (DA) offers occasional help in planning and organizing and funding Drupal code sprints.
Code sprints are an important way that advances are made in Drupal development, both in core and in contributions. Sprints are generally self-organized and self-funded: individuals interested in participating communicate with each other, choose a time and place, and get sponsorship as needed for travel expenses, a venue, etc. from their employers, clients, and other sources.Read more
