We need volunteers to help out with the camp! There are going to be 345 people, 345 t-shirts, pizza, and over 50 amazing sessions, BoFs and sprints.
If you can help out please edit this wiki page (you'll need to be signed in) and add your name next to a task. Only people that have registered for the camp are able to volunteer; unfortunately the 345 person cap that we have from the venue must include volunteers.
Make sure that we can reach you through your Groups.Drupal.org user profile - Hally will be coordinating volunteers and will need to contact you. In the meantime, you can email her with any questions you may have to hally (at) workhabit (dot) comRead more

Drupal 7 is right around the corner and you need to be prepared. In this session we'll take a look at the new features of Drupal 7 and how that are going to make your life easier. We will walk through the new installation process and explore Drupal 7 from a newcomer's perspective but also compare and contrast it with Drupal 6 and the former contributed module that made it into core.
Every developer and power user develops a toolkit of shortcuts and hacks that become second nature. I'd like to present some of the ones I've discovered over the years, and invite ideas from the community to share their own, which I'll include with credit to each contributor.
Some examples -
* SVN shortcut functions to simplify SVN in the terminal,
* Drush shortcuts like getting the size of a database in one command,
* all kinds of terminal "fu" with find, grep, ssh, pipes
* Textmate helpers like the Drupal bundle,
* the Drupal extension and other developer goodies in Chrome,

We learn so much in life from the mistakes of others. Can a best practice really be identified until a worst practice comes along that makes us laugh and cry?Read more
Many publishers and media companies have shifted their Websites to Drupal. This DrupalCampNYC8 session explores why this is the case by examining current and future trends. We will present several case studies and host an open discussion about workflow tools, popular contributed modules, mobile publishing, and techniques for monetizing content, all of which are helping publishers rethink their businesses. From workflow management, multiplatform publishing, and subscription payments, to video integration, social media integration, and user generated content, this session will focus on how publishers and media companies are using Drupal to invite wider audience participation and ultimately improving their bottom line.
In this presentation I'll discuss (possibly with co-presenters) the process of going from an independent contractor to a Drupal development shop, and specifically some of the problems I/we have gone through in building Zivtech from 1 to 13 people over the past 2.5 years.Read more

WordPress gets some very important things right, and their hold on this market is proof. There are 11.4 million active installations of WordPress software, compared to only hundreds of thousands of Drupal installations. We need to get our act together, raise our standards, and lower the barrier to entry.
Come join me in talking about what this community needs to do to ensure its survival. What should we really be focusing on in Drupal Core for D8? What should you do with your own modules to prevent our CMS from being abandoned in favor of something else?Read more
