Announcing the 2008 DrupalCamp Australia! It will be taking place on Saturday, October 18th from 9am - 5pm at the University of Sydney's School of Pharmacy.

Read on for all the details
What is a DrupalCamp? For those of you new to Drupal or community events - Inspired by the BarCamp events, DrupalCamp is a small (to medium sized) gathering of like minded people to discuss and learn about Drupal, share ideas, get involved in the community, connect and network with people - the people you see so often online.
DrupalCamp Australia is a FREE event put on by the people, for the people and with the help of some friendly sponsors.
We will have a hybrid of formality - several presentations will be organized before hand and the rest will be filled in and figured out on the day. Which means we need your involvement! If you would like to make a presentation or have a topic for discussion, please post it as a comment to sessions list. We will take these presentations first when we are making the schedule on the day.
How Much $$?
Its $0 - FREE! Yes, in case you misread that, this event only costs your time and attention. We are accepting donations though. We are only able to provide this through the generous support of our sponsors. Even though it is free, we have limited resources and can only accommodate 45 people. So sign up quick!
We will have a full day of fun on Saturday, October 16th, 2008. We will open up for registration/greetings at 9:00am and actually get things kicked off at around 9:30ish and likely finish around 5pm. We will probably move to a nearby pub to continue the socializing and for dinner/drinks.
If there are any special needs, please email me ASAP. There is handicap access to the building, and potentially hearing impaired services available, but I will need to confirm anything.
We will have signs to help direct people, but don't feel bad if you get lost and need to call. (Contact details will be emailed to attendees before the event)
We are already confirming presentations from several well known Drupalers in Australia, including people from Sydney, Melbourne and the South Coast. You can find all the details about presentations over at http://groups.drupal.org/node/15165
Presenters should preferably bring their own computer, otherwise make sure to bring it on a usb stick in a standard format. Please contact me if you have any questions. All presentations should be posted on slideshare at http://www.slideshare.net/event/drupalcamp-australia-2008
I also encourage you to post on other sites (Flickr, del.icio.us, mag.nol.ia, etc) with the tag drupalcamp-au2008
