Where in the World are the DrupalChix?

You are viewing a wiki page. You are welcome to join the group and then edit it. Be bold!

There have been a number of comments about how to find other women in Drupal. We're scattered around, but maybe not as much as we think. And it would be nice to know if there are other DrupalChix nearby. Maybe it could even lead to some regional DrupalChix get-togethers :-)

Anyway, a fancy Google Map with everyone's location would be cool, but I know many of us are not sure we want everyone in the world to know exactly where we are (sadly, that can be dangerous) but it would still be fun to have a general idea who is nearby. So I've started a very low-tech list on a wiki page that anyone can add their names to, and added a few locations to get it started.




South Africa


Cape Town




Tel Aviv




















The Netherlands

United Kingdom of Great Britain

North America


British Columbia

Nova Scotia









District of Columbia














New Hampshire

New Jersey

New York

North Carolina




South Carolina








New Zealand


South America


Buenos Aires


Porto Alegre

*Awesome* idea!!

Hi all.

I didn't precisely realize until now that we've got separate ids on groups.d.o. (vs. d.o.) So I added a link to both.

Looking forward to seeing more of us in the wiki:

This is definetly interesting

Wenya's picture

I think this is a nice idea, too :) I'm looking forward to seeing if this group is this much concentrated in North America or if it's just that people in other parts of the world are still sleeping or working.

And Africa?

diricia's picture

I cant' believe Africa was not added on the list of continents :-) To be complete I've added Australia as well. I think we can leave Antartica until we have convincing prove that there is a DrupalChix there.

I know 4 other DrupalChix in South Africa, Johannesburg. I'll get them to sign up.

I would love a Google Map of the people on the list. Is there a way to set the granularity of the map to show the city a person lives in, rather than the exact address? Or otherwise, to protect privacy, we could perhaps choose the city/suburb centre (as defined by the first person to post for that city) as our location. OR set your location as the closest coffee shop you would like to meet at :-)

I'm going to be travelling soon and would love to meet other Chix.

A nearby coffee shop as a

KarenS's picture

A nearby coffee shop as a location is an interesting idea -- could be both a place to meet and a way to tell who is where.

And I almost did add Africa,

KarenS's picture

And I almost did add Africa, but I assumed there were probably no Chix there, which was obviously very wrong. So if someone is in Antarctica, please let us know :-)

The DrupalCamp 0 in Yaoundé, Cameroon, will occur on June 12th, and, just because no one did it before her, is organized by a woman, would anybody doubt about it. I shall do the best I can, except pancakes this time :-)

Cameroon? Awesome! You know how when you're filling out a form on a website and you get to the "Country" field and type "Ca" and it autocompletes to "Canada"? Me too, only the opposite. ;)

Let me know if you are interested in getting involved! We are still looking for presenters and volunteers -- and you get in free if you volunteer or present....


Drupalchix meetup in SF Bay Area

Technically, I'm super-isolated out here in Alabama, but I do travel a good bit. I pop up often in Atlanta and less regularly in Seattle. I have never met another person who actually works with drupal. It'd be refreshing to have tangible evidence that I'm not the only one...

Hi all,

I found this group a couple of days ago! Have been using Drupal for a couple of months - so still quite new to it all.

Have only just heard about this group

gsquirrel's picture

I am also in the UK - dont see it on the list, surely there are a few more uk based drupal chix out there?

I think this group is a great idea. I have been involved in women only technical trainings trying to encourage women to use more technical tools for their work within the women's movement, e.g. the Feminist Tech Exchange (http://ftx.apcwomen.org) in Cape Town last November (for which we had a drupal site of course!) I have been working with drupal building sites for ngo's for a few years now, and would love to be knowledgeable and confident enough to be helping develop modules rather than just working around problems.

I'm near there!

hordie's picture

Interested in Drupal since the very first time I installed Acquia Drupal, I was surprised to see that seemingly no DrupalCamp had ever occurred in Cameroon, so I am presently trying to organize the first one in Yaoundé, on Sunday June 12th. I am presently just a beginner, having used Drupal "out of the box" and sometimes installed modules, but not programmed in PHP yet. This is going to change quite soon because' i just love PHP and MySQL. Cheers to all of you !

Drupalcamp in Cameroon

jane.trimmer's picture

Good luck with Drupalcamp! I hope it goes well.

I recently attended this one in Leeds, UK http://2011.drupal7camp.org/. Attendees proposed sessions beforehand and a schedule was put together on the day. Overall, a great success.

I'm also attending Drupalcon, London and hope to see some of you there.


Thank you, Jane

hordie's picture

Thank you, Jane. :-)

On this DrupalCamp 0, we shall put an emphasis on the opportunity of Libre software - including of course Drupal - for developing countries so we can be a part of the world movement too.

If there is a place on drupal.org where I can store the presentation slides, I shall be glad to do so.

Greetings from a Drupal Chick in CT!

librariankate7578's picture

Hello friends!

I am pleased to see this community in existence and hope that we can encourage and support each other in being the Ada Lovelaces for Drupal for the next generation. I saw the gender disparity in Drupal yesterday at Drupal Camp CT , and while we are making strides, more can and should be done.

I'm in the lower Fairfield County, CT area (that's about an hour outside of New York City) - does anyone know of any Drupalchix groups/meetups/etc in either CT or New York City?

Also, some food for thought from my friend Andromeda Yelton on the gender disparity in the tech sector: http://andromedayelton.com/blog/2012/04/06/my-first-hackathon-or-gender-....

With kindest regards to all,

Hello everyone! Greetings and a big hello from the sunny, hot and humid Singapore. So glad there's a group for Women in Drupal. =) If anyone is coming by to Singapore, feel free to drop me a message. There's a DrupalCamp (http://www.drupalcamp.sg/) happening in Singapore at the end of April so I'll be there if anyone happens to go as well.

Also, I'm currently working with a tech startup and am starting a little beginner blog on Drupal as I am a total beginner myself. My first post is at http://ow.ly/jChKw. If anyone has any ideas, comments or suggestions, I am all ears. =)
