The inaugural Drupalcamp Atlanta is now open for registration, and will be held on Saturday, September 19th from 10am – 5pm on the beautiful campus of Kennesaw State University. Our mission and purpose is twofold: (1.) we want to educate people about Drupal and (2.) further evangelize Drupal within our geographic region.
Drupalcamp Atlanta is an attendee driven, completely volunteer initiative modeled after the open, participatory nature of barcamps. The schedule is catered towards a wide audience - developers, designers, marketing professionals, system administrators, non-profits, or technologists who have a like-minded interest or simply want to find out more about Drupal in general. The format will involve volunteer led breakout sessions, featured keynotes from prominent Drupal luminaries, and Birds of Feather (BoF) gatherings. We will offer two tracks – one geared towards beginners and the other for more intermediate to advanced Drupal users.
Here is the best part – registration, lunch, and beverages/snacks will be completely FREE thanks to some amazing sponsors. Oh, and there will even be an after-hours party and networking function immediately after the camp ends. If you live outside Atlanta make it a long weekend, and check out what the city has to offer.
However, we could really use your help. First and foremost, attendance will be capped due to facility constraints. We are highly encouraging everyone to register early to not risk getting shut out.
In addition, we need your expertise and are looking for presenters to submit sessions. We are particularly interested in speakers who could lead "Drupal 101" or beginner sessions.
Whether you are a savvy Drupal developer that wants to sharpen your skills or simply someone whose curiosity has been piqued by hearing about Drupal then this event is for you.
