Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet).
Cloud computing entrusts services (typically centralized) with a user's data, software and computation on a published application programming interface (API) over a network. It has considerable overlap with software as a service (SaaS).Read more

I'm putting a list of slidedecks that I know about from twitter. If I missed yours, add it here. (It's kind of hard to navigate this information on Twitter, and I know some of the decks weren't posted using the #dcnyc10 Tags.
Here is a short list to start:Read more
Was that fun or what?
Saturday's DrupalCampNYC 10 was a blast, and our biggest so far! Nearly 400 of us converged on John Jay College for a day of Drupal learning and hanging out, and the activity on Twitter was very cool to see.
Now that the sessions are done and the mountain of bottled water is put away, what happens next?
Hey everyone - I couldn't find a page that could be best utilized for discussions regarding the upcoming DrupalCampNYC10 @ John Jay so I figured I would create one. This could be used for various Non-Official discussions; i.e. unloading extra tickets :), Drupalers seeking transportation to/from the event, etc.
If there is already a page for this then please let me know and I will re-post there.
We need volunteers for the day-of the conference. We have defined volunteer slots on this Google Doc. If you are a registered attendee and would like to help out in some way on the day of the camp, please put your name down on the volunteer spreadsheet.
This camp is an ambitious undertaking, with an anticipated attendance of 500 people coming from all over the region. Consequently, the logistics are going to be quite daunting, and we need your help.Read more

I proposed a session on OpenScholar for the DrupalCamp NYC (DEC 10)
any suggestions for topics, formats or ideas welcome
Demo site will include
- School Brochure
- Course Catalog
- E-Commerce (Automatic student registration on payment)
DrupalCampNYC 10 will be the largest New York City Camp to date, with 500 anticipated attendees and over 30 high-quality sessions across a spectrum of Drupal-related disciplines.
It's all happening on Saturday, December 10, 2011 at John Jay College in Manhattan, for the bargain price of $20. Your registration fee will not only cover a full day of top-notch Drupal content from some of the finest minds in our community, but breakfast and lunch as well.
DrupalCamp sessions are created and presented by camp participants. For this camp, sessions will be organized into the following tracks:
- Development sessions might talk about topics including module development, security, tools and environments, best practices, etc.
- Site building sessions address topics around the Drupal admin, community-contributed modules and tools, and more. If it's not Development, and it's not Presentation, and it's part of the site creation process, it's probably here.
- Presentation encompasses design, front-end development, and theming.
- Business and end users is more geared toward the non-technical facets of Drupal. This might include project management, team dynamics, tips for content managers and editors, agency issues, marketing, and so forth.
- Sysadmin and performance is the track for things like hosting, database optimization, testing tools and protocols, CDNs, and various other topics.
Within each of the tracks listed, there will be content suitable for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Drupal professionals. Additionally, there will be New/Newish to Drupal sessions early in the day, to help bring up to speed those who do not yet have a deep knowledge of Drupal; birds of a feather sessions will allow participants to engage in open discussion around specific topics.
Finally, each time slot will feature a Community Spotlight speaker. This speaker, drawn from the NYC Drupal community, is a recognized expert in his or her area of Drupal and will speak on a high-impact topic of his or her choice.
Also of note: there are a few sponsorship opportunities still available. Benefits and levels are available here: http://drupalcampnyc.org/sponsors/how-sponsor

You know that feeling when you find a $20 bill in last year's winter coat, or class gets canceled the day your midterm paper is due? It's kind of like that.
We are very happy to announce that the deadline for submitting session proposals has been extended to Monday, November 14th! That means you've got two whole weeks to dream up your best Drupal ideas and get them out there for all the world to see.Read more
