Announcing CapitalCamp - Washington, DC's first DrupalCamp

Word is really spreading about CapitalCamp and I'm excited to see so many Drupalers signing up for CapitalCamp already! We're looking forward to bringing the FIRST EVER DrupalCamp to the nation's capital this summer. We are convinced that CapitalCamp is going to be chock full of learning and collaboration opportunities whether you’re a government employee just learning about Drupal or a die-hard Drupal developer.

Word is really spreading about CapitalCamp and I'm excited to see so many Drupalers signing up for CapitalCamp already! We're looking forward to bringing the FIRST EVER DrupalCamp to the nation's capital this summer. We are convinced that CapitalCamp is going to be chock full of learning and collaboration opportunities whether you’re a government employee just learning about Drupal or a die-hard Drupal developer.

CapitalCamp.orgRight now we're asking the Drupal Community to put on their thinking caps and come up with some great panel submissions to make this DrupalCamp unforgettable! Over the course of this two-day event we will be offering three learning tracks, which will help answer the following questions:

  • Government/Business: What does it take to bring Drupal into an organization, agency, or business? How do you think strategically? Where are the political land mines? How do you manage a project built on an open source platform? Can you answer these questions and others like them? We want to hear from you.
  • Beginner: Can you remember what it was like when you learned how to use Drupal? Do you remember those ah-ha moments? Would you be interested in helping others over some of the obstacles you hurdled? Tell us how you can help others engage Drupal. We are interested in supporting the entry of several roles: Planning, Design, Building, Developing, and Theming. Also, don't forget about the environment in which Drupal runs. Come help others avoid performance and security pitfalls that can take beginners by surprise.
  • Intermediate/Advanced: Do you know how to make a Drupal site rock without lifting a coding finger? Come tell us. Are you one of those coders who are building modules for the rest of us to use? Come help others do the same. Are you responsible for ensuring performance and security on large, complex sites? Share your lessons learned.

So check us out at CapitalCamp.org and let us know if you have any great ideas for panels. You can also keep track of developing news by following us on Twitter. We look forward to seeing you in July!
