DCNYC11 will take place THIS Saturday, June 23 at 9 AM in its long-time home at Polytechnic University in Brooklyn. The address is 6 Metrotech Center, which is on Jay Street. The camp will be held entirely in Rogers Hall/The Jacobs Building as shown on this map http://www.poly.edu/sites/polyproto.poly.edu/files/map.png
You can take public transportation to easily arrive at POLY via the Jay Street/Metrotech subway stop (A,C,F or R). More exact directions can be found at
Please go to http://dcnyc11.eventbrite.com/ and reserve your spot. A reminder that while this event is being made free, there is a suggested donation of $25, which will help us keep the event cashflow neutral, thus aiding us in funding the larger Drupalcamp event that is contemplated for the late Fall.
What is an unconference?
The typical approach to a conference features a content schedule that is selected in advance by a planning committee. While the committee may take input from its registered ...attendees, the committee ultimately decides what content will be presented at the event.
In an unconference, the event content is suggested and chosen by the actual attendees on the day of the event. First thing in the morning, we all gather to find out what everyone wants to talk about and set the schedule.
While content decisions are not made until the day of the camp, now is the time to start thinking and talking about ideas. While there aren't formalized tracks per se, you can think about topics in terms of a few categories:
Also, consider different skill levels. Ideally, there will be a nice mix of beginner, intermediate, and advanced content available.
Finally, keep in mind that the format for DCNYC11 content is flexible. You are certainly welcome to put together a formal presentation. However, some of the best ideas come out of less structured material like a demo or case study and open discussion. We encourage you to consider leading a discussion on a topic of interest, or to submit a case study for consideration as a session topic.
Some starter ideas:
what have you found to be the most useful, surprising, or enigmatic changes for Drupal 7?
what have been your most challenging project requirements, and how did you meet them?
what module do you think is a "best kept secret"?
what direction would you like to see a community philosophy, Drupal core, or major contrib project take?
what other technologies are really, really cool when you pair them with Drupal?
We encourage everyone to post comments to this page (http://groups.drupal.org/node/236313) with ideas for sessions. These can be sessions you want to lead or just things you are interested in learning more about and hope someone else will step up to lead.
