One of the over-riding goals of the Drupalcamp Atlanta organizers was to provide as much video footage of the event as possible in order to share back to the community at large. We also heard from a lot of people that had a conflict of interest with the date, were turned away by the weather, or may have attended, and wanted to see two or more sessions that overlapped.
Thanks to some Herculean efforts by folks like Atlanta Drupal User Group members Utzu Logigan and David Fugate our vision is nearing a reality. The video crew has been meticulously editing and processing a lot of footage the last few weeks. We are proud to release 20 videos, and still have several more left to complete – I am told the remaining coverage should be done within a few weeks.
If you are a Drupal newbie or savvy developer looking to sharpen the saw, then I would highly encourage you to sponge up as much of the FREE video as possible. One of the best ways to learn Drupal and stay current is from listening to the practitioners using it daily.
For our part, Mediacurrent had the pleasure of presenting 6 sessions, which included:
Power Drupal Theming: Derek Dunagan
Case Study: In-Fisherman.com-Building an Enterprise-Level Drupal Site: Paul Chason and Josh Estep
Best Practices and Tips on Migrating a Legacy-Based System to Drupal: Paul Chason
Getting Started with Version Control Using Subversion: Chris Hales
Getting the Most out of Views 2.0: Jay Callicott
Theming Drupal Menus: Trent Wyman
Next, I would like to extend a personal word of thanks to all of the speakers and Kennesaw State University (facility sponsor) – of course, like all Drupalcamps, this was a volunteer led event and it was obvious that there was a lot of time, dedication, and thought put into each of these high-quality sessions.
Finally, if you are in the metro Atlanta area our local Drupal user group meets-up on the 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of every month - c’mon by and check us out.
Enjoy the videos!
