OpenForce 2022 participants should start with this blog post.

It's really been great to see all the OpenForce 2022 participants in our issue queue over the last two weeks. We have three issues that have been committed to Backdrop already, with two more that are already RTBC (ready to be committed), and quite a few that are under review or being worked on. 

BADCamp 2019

BADCamp 2019 is quickly approaching, and as per usual, Backdrop CMS will be making a big showing. In case you haven't heard, this year the camp will be at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza, instead of UC Berkeley.

Here are some of the highlights of our presence this year:

Drupal Camp LA 2018

Another Drupal Camp LA has come and gone.

To be honest, I wasn't sure it was even going to happen, due to how late in the year it was announced.

But happen it did, and it was great.

I didn't go to many sessions. Instead, I ending up spending most of my time talking with various people about different things. It wasn't necessarily intentional -- that's just the way it worked out.

I did end up attending a few sessions: mostly the ones that involved Backdrop.

Sun & SAND & Backdrop CMS

Last week Nate & I headed down to beautiful San Diego to participate in the San Diego Drupal Camp. San Diego is a fantastic place to visit in February, when most of the country is experiencing the bitter cold of winter. The locals pointed out that it wasn’t actually all that nice out, because “some people need to wear socks!”

Backdrop CMS Mini Camp - Twin Cities, June 6th

Backdrop training

It's time for the first ever Backdrop CMS mini camp! It will taking place in the Twin Cities this year as part of Twin Cities Drupal Camp, 2019.

What is a mini-camp, you ask?

In this case, we're calling it a mini-camp, because it's a one day event, full of Backdrop CMS related sessions. It's scheduled on training/summit day at Twin Cities Drupal Camp. It's like a camp within a camp. It's a mini camp!

Backdrop CMS is participating in the Grace Hopper Celebration, Open Source Day 2022. This blog post was specially written for the same event in 2020.

Dear Open Source Day participants,

We are so grateful that you are volunteering your time to help us make Backdrop CMS a better product for the 1000's of small businesses and non-profits that rely on it. Over the next couple of years, some 700,000 Drupal 7 sites will be looking for a path forward as Drupal 7 reaches end of life.

The BADCamp Experience

UC Berkeley

This was my first BADCamp. Though I have been to many other DrupalCons and Camps, I had heard that BADCamp still retained the sense of community and was scaled to allow for a great deal of interaction between presenters and attendees. To that end, BADCamp exceeded my expectations!
