Florida DrupalCamp 2012 Fast Approaching

Published January 5, 2012

The fourth edition of Florida DrupalCamp is rapidly approaching - Drupalists from Florida and beyond will be descending on Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida on February 11 and 12, 2012 for the largest Drupal event Florida has ever seen.

Registration is currently open at fldrupalcamp.org at the low cost of $20 per person - the cost will be going to up $25 on January 11, so be sure to register soon to get the lowest possible price. Admission will include a t-shirt, drinks, snacks, and lunch and access to the entire session program.

Session proposals are still being accepted as well - the deadline for submitting a session is January 12, so if you're interested in sharing some of your Drupal knowledge, be sure to submit your proposal soon. 

We're teaming up with the Rollins Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Center to provide a track specifically 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. In addition, Rollins is donating the use of their facilities for the camp, so a giant "thanks" to them!

On Sunday, February 12, we'll be holding our 3rd annual Coding for a Cause event where we'll be building a site for one (or more!) 501(c)(3) organization(s). Volunteers are needed to help out in all areas of the build, including newbies who want to participate in the building of a Drupal site from start-to-finish. The Orlando Sentinel recently published an article about this aspect of the camp. 

As usual, none of this would be possible without sponsors. In addition to the Rollins Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Center as our venue sponsor, this year we're lucky enough to have Trellon as our Platinum sponsor (their CEO, Michael Haggerty is also our keynote speaker) as well as Techwell, Mediacurrent, Big Couch Media, and DrupalEasy as Gold sponsors. Finally, we're fortunate to be teaming up with the Central Florida Computer Society as our 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor for the third straight year.
