What is a DrupalCamp?

DrupalCamps are community sharing + training events for Drupal enthusiasts and newbies alike. Florida DrupalCamp is an attendee-driven, completely volunteer initiative. Most of the content will Drupal-specific, but there will also be presentations related to more general web technologies such as HTML5, JavaScript, and PHP.

Why is the event a "Camp"?

Florida Drupalcamp is called a “camp” to emphasize the unconference style of the event. Unconferences are more casual than most conferences and are usually organized and attended by members of a local community. The name originates from BarCamp, a popular community-driven unconference. Please do not bring your tent :)

What's the goal of Florida DrupalCamp?

Our mission and purpose behind organizing a Florida DrupalCamp is as follows:

  1. Learn and educate about Drupal and web development in general
  2. Provide networking opportunities for all of us

Do you have a Code of Conduct Policy?
