Why DrupalCamp:
For more than six years the Chicago Drupal Meet Up Group has highlighted the benefits of an open source initiative. We have built bridges between nonprofits/entrepreneurs and resourceful Drupal development companies, independent consultants, hobbyists in the Chicago-land area.

The day-long DrupalCamp allows for a more intensive hands-on focus than our normal monthly meet ups. DrupalCamp brings everyone of all skill levels together for open communication, education, fun, and a relaxed forum for industry networking.

Not Just for Experts:
An attendee-driven format with an array of resources available makes this event unique. Multiple presentations will run simultaneously—geared to everyone from beginners, to hobbyists, to bloggers, to sales teams, to advanced developers. People of all skill levels are welcome and laptops are encouraged.

4 weeks until camp, 1 week until proposal deadline

Slurpee's picture

4 weeks until DrupalCamp Chicago 2012! Make sure to register and propose a session before our deadline next weekend. Feel free to utilize multiple people. We're accepting session proposals until October 20th, voting ends October 27th, and we'll notify presenters about accepted sessions by October 28th. As a presenter, you can influence the regional community and help spark interest in your favorite modules, APIs, and more. Presenting at Drupalcon is fairly difficult these days. However, presenting at camp is a chance for local folks to step up, show off what you know, and give back to the community. Not to mention it might help your credibility to present at a future Drupalcon!
