Greetings from Florida DrupalCamp 2013! We have been working the past few weeks to figure out a way to record the FLDC sessions and make them available online for free. We've come up with a process to do this and are now seeking to fully fund it. Our current camp sponsors account for 20 of the sessions to be recorded. The remaining 16 sessions are still open and available!Read more

Coding for a Cause: We need your help!
On Sunday, April 21st, participants at Florida DrupalCamp will volunteer to build websites for 3 nonprofit organizations as a way to build skills in the Florida Drupal community, and provide a benefit for the selected organizations.
We are looking for Project Managers to coordinate with the selected agencies prior to, and the day of the event. You'll be responsible for gathering the required information from one of the selected non-profit organizations and getting that information back to the volunteers who will be building the website for them.
We also need a technical lead and themer to assign to each organization.
This is a great way to help a worthy organization and to build up some drupalkarma.

I had a Windows Netbook (ASUS eeePC with 2MB) atFlorida Drupal Camp. Like many other participants with similar equipment, I could not install Acquia Drupal. Acquia's stack still hangs up and will not install on my machine. That's a mystery. However, I had success with the WAMP stack from http://www.wampserver.com and a download of Drupal.
