Toronto Drupal Camp



May 01, 2007

OpenConcept is pleased to be participating in the 2nd annual Toronto Drupal Camp. Ravi, Ethan & myself will be heading down to participate in workshops from other Drupal developers. Meet with other users and developers here in Ontario and get a better sense of how people are using this software.

The community around Drupal is quite engaged and there have now been a number of conferences organized internationally to get together developers. International conferences have been held in Amsterdam, Brussels Vancouver, Portland, the Yahoo! Campus and this fall Barcelona.

It was nice to see that the organizers haven't had any problem filling the 150 spaces for this conference. The list of sessions promises to be as interesting as the people who are going to be there. I have offered to host a session on making Drupal multilingual -- it's an important feature for a CMS in a bilingual country. Other interesting sessions include theming, module specific support, site recipes and some interesting features for newbies.
