Busy Developer's May in Bucharest

Drupalcamp Bucharest 2011 | May 7-8, Student's Culture House, Bucharest, Romania

The last edition was held in Timisoara in 2010, and was joined by 170 developers from countries. We enjoyed 2 days of Drupal presentations focused on development, design and showcases.

Why should you come?

Drupalcamp Bucharest will mashup lots of sessions, keynotes, Bird-of-a-Feather talks, codesprints and social networking events. It is the perfect place to find about new web technologies and about the brand new Drupal 7 and the new features and APIs introduced.

If you are looking for Drupal talents for hire, this is the perfect spot to find them. If you are looking for a new way to build highly interactive web applications with a social flavor or just found about Drupal, this is the place to get advice and learn. If you are already a Drupal pro, there are lots of people who want to learn from your experience!.

Drupalcamp Bucharest 2011 has opened registrations at the conference website, and is awaiting session submissions for several tracks:

  • Drupal for Beginners
  • Theming, Design, and Usability
  • Development and Performance
  • Drupal in action: Business, eLearning, NGOs, eGovernance

The preferred language of the conference is English, as we have an international audience.

Yahoo! Open Hack Europe 2011 | May 14-15, Crystal Palace Ballrooms, Bucharest, Romania

The last European Open Hack held in London in 2009 was a huge success with over 350 developers and designers hacking into the wee hours and producing 61 fantastic technology hacks. Bucharest will be the first Open Hack in mainland Europe aimed at developers and designers from all across Europe.

Open Hack Europe 2011 will begin with a series of hack-related presentations from some of the Web's most respected developers, followed by 24 hours of hacking using a great collection of web tools, services and APIs from the Yahoo! Developer Network (including YUI, YQL, Flickr, Updates, Answers, and more), and other APIs and data from around the Web. The event will end on the second day with the hack demos plus bragging rights until the end of eternity or the next Hack Day, whichever comes first.

Yahoo! will provide you with everything you need to have fun, be creative and productive, and impress your peers with what you can do with a computer and the wealth of technologies and data available on the Web.
