This year's Drupal Camp is June 23 - June 26. What are you waiting for? Immerse yourself in Drupal and level up your skills. We offer four days of training and sessions by nationally known trainers and speakers, a great celebration, and Drupal code sprints. Registration for all four days of camp is just $45. Register today! (And, after you register be sure to sign up for training.)

Intimidated by web? Don't be.

We're excited to welcome our keynote speaker Helena Zubkow, front-end developer at Lullabot and one of the @Accessibots, passionate advocates for accessibility on websites big and small. Will a blind person be able to use your website without seeing the screen? Can someone who can’t use a mouse use your navigation? Helena shares the real stories of people with disabilities to explain the principles of web accessibility and to inspire us to build a more inclusive web.

All day training and sessions, sessions and more sessions.

We're proud to once again offer a full day of trainings, free to conference attendees! You must register for the training you want to attend, as space is limited. Sign up for one of these classes (click on their links and read more about them):

You will find sessions about Drupal 8, understanding Drupal, usability, accessibility, design, content strategy, or project management? We have those and more! And, yes, you'll find plenty of chances to learn about front end and back end development from leaders in the Drupal community. Check out the list, there is something for everyone!

New this year.

This year, the University of Minnesota is a major partner in hosting Twin Cities Drupal Camp. In recognition of their widespread usage of Drupal, we’re pleased to announce our first-ever Higher Education Summit to take place on Thursday, June 23 with a focus on accessibility. However, participants should come prepared to share and discuss their experiences and perspectives on any of the many issues of concern to people who use Drupal in institutions of higher education.

The summit will include a panel discussion, a featured presentation by Drupal 8 Accessibility Maintainer Mike Gifford, lightning talks, and several break-out discussions where participants can talk about the issues that are most important to them.

New location: UofMN Law School.

We can't wait to see you this summer on the West Bank of the University of Minnesota.

Parking?

What is the parking like around University of Minnesota Law School? I'm not familiar with the campus so any information would be helpful.

Parking

I normally use the 19th Avenue ramp or the 21st Avenue ramp myself. Although, they can be a bit pricey at $12 for a full day. You can find more general parking info here

The surface lot C86 just outside Mondale Hall will be the most convenient. It's mixed permit and hourly parking, but because it's summer, it should have a lot more available spaces than during the school year. Price is the same as the ramps: up to $12 for a full day. See here for location and hourly pricing:

The Seven Corners Ramp is also close by, but a bit more expensive: $13 for 10 hours, and $17 maximum per day:
