DrupalCampNYC History - Help Us Write It!

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

I was thinking that it would be awesome to capture some of the unique history of DrupalCampNYC. This can be used on our DrupalCampNYC home page to really add some flavor to our event.

It will also be an exercise in "awesomeness" to really think back and remember all the cool things that have come our of the NY community.

So with that in mind post your memories of specific things that have come out of DrupalCampNYC events such as:

  • Modules that were launched or first demoed at NYC
  • Community contributions that came out of specific camps
  • Funny anecdotes from specific camps
  • Anything else

Please organize them under the appropriate camp link below (each heading links to original camp page)!:
