It's an event aimed to leverage the sharing of knowledge about Drupal and to facilitate learning Drupal in an open environment. Drupalcamp is an intense, participant-driven event, hosting workshops and demos, and following the format of “unconferences” as opposite to official conferences (such as OSCON, DrupalCon, LinuxCon, etc.). Participants submit proposals before the event is held, and the schedule is designed based on these proposals. The overall goals of Drupalcamp are to connect local and regional communities and to allow the sharing of knowledge. Drupalcamps are community sharing and training events for Drupal enthusiasts.
This is the second Drupalcamp in Romania. The previous one took place in Timisoara.
The event will take place in English. There will be some exceptions but only related to Romanian Community that will be in Romanian language.
Drupal is a free opensource content management system written in the PHP programming language and distributed under the GPL ("GNU General Public License"). It is used as a back-end system for many different types of websites, ranging from small personal blogs to Enterprise 2.0 collaboration and knowledge management uses to large corporate and political sites, including whitehouse.gov and data.gov.uk.
Yes! Sessions will both cover beginners and advanced Drupalers.
The official Drupalcon is a chance to learn more about where modules are moving in the future, and to meet the people behind the modules you use. In contrast, our tracks tend to cater to newbies and professionals working with Drupal. Showcase sessions show off excellent sites built with Drupal, by explaining what they do and how the were built. There are plans to hold beginner and immediate level sessions while other tracks can focus on development.
The Romania Drupal Community is an informal organization of people from Romania interested in Drupal. We hold meetings to discuss Drupal and share new things we've learned, in different cities of Romania like: Cluj, Timisoara, Bucharest, which anyone can attend. Before the meetings, and sometimes at other times, we have "co-working" time, where we meet and work on our own Drupal projects, in an atmosphere of sharing ideas. We have a forum, where people post Drupal jobs, ask questions, and announce news of interest to the local Drupal community. And we also put on Drupalcamps.
The event is in May 7-8 2011! Sessions can be submitted by registered attendees up until April 11. At some point we will open up voting to all attendees.
