Tickets for Florida DrupalCamp 2011, February 12-13 at Rollins College in Winter Park, are now available at the official site: FLDrupalCamp.org. This year's event promises to the be the largest Drupal event Florida has ever seen with more of what’s been growing crowds for the past few years - now at a bigger, more comfortable venue. Tickets are just $10 and include a t-shirt, and plenty of food and drinks.
We've partnered with two great organizations to pull this off. First, the Rollins College Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership Center is acting as our host organization. They are providing an enormous amount of support in providing a venue, helping with session selection, and getting the word out to local organizations. The Central Florida Computer Society is helping us for the second year in a row providing financial management and a bevy of volunteers.
Day 1: 5-track Learning Experience
Beginner Track - Enthusiasts, first-timers, non-programmers, webmasters, and marketing people, as well as anyone tasked with updating sites will benefit from these sessions to provide a practical overview of Drupal. You’ll learn the basics, get practical tips, tap into great resources and gain insight as a real site is built before your eyes.
Two dedicated Drupal Hands-On tracks for programmers, webmasters, themers and others seeking to get insight and best practices from the brightest Drupallers we know. These sessions are the heart of Florida DrupalCamp, and this year will also feature valuable sessions on new features in Drupal 7.
Two Business and Social Media tracks - Social Media Club of Orlando is contributing heavily to this first ever Business and Social Media track for non-technical people, decision makers and those who need to get a better understanding of what Drupal can do. You’ll learn the basic principals, benefits and challenges in using Drupal with popular social media tools, and the advantages of the platform and its dedicated developer community.
Also, Birds Of a Feather sessions presented in a dedicated room throughout the day where you can get help, get some work done, or create your own unconference.
Networking – After the last screen goes dark Florida DrupalCamp social scene lights up with an evening designed for fun and fellowship at the Shipyard Brewery in Winter Park. It’s a chance to get to know the experts, meet the newbies, and develop a few new friendships.
Day 2: Site building sprint for a cause
2nd Annual "Coding for a Cause".
This year, we will be building a site for the 501(c)3 Central Florida Computer Society, which will be celebrating its 30th birthday next year. Our annual community selection process chose CFCS as the beneficiary of Coding for a Cause based on their active participation and support of the local Drupal community.
We'd be remiss if we didn't mention the amazing support we've received from our sponsors, led by our Platinum sponsor, MindComet, a leading interactive marketing and software development development company with a large presence in Altamonte Springs, Florida. Thanks to them and our other sponsors, including Trellon, BigCouch Media Group, Lullabot, Software Quality Engineering, and Veredus, we've been able to keep the ticket prices at just $10.
This year's event promises to be the largest Drupal event Florida has ever seen. Last year we were forced to cap attendance at a less than 200 people due to the venue, this year, the capacity is much higher. We hope to see everyone there!
