Sessions have been selected,  t-shirts have been ordered, and travel has been booked. Phase2 is ready for BadCamp! We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be a core sponsor at BadCamp this year, with Phase2 participating throughout the camp including trainings, summits, and sessions.

This year BadCamp has made the radical decision to accept all proposed sessions. As a Drupal camp organizer, I stand in awe and wonderment of the BadCamp organizing team. Aside from the logistical admiration I have for this strategy, I think giving all sessions and presenters an equal playing field is awesome, and I am excited to see some of the more alternative sessions that are scheduled.

With so many sessions to choose from, it will be hard to choose what sessions to attend. Here's a quick look at Phase2 trainings, summits, and sessions for your consideration:
