This weekend Jen Lampton will be working with a group of high school students, in the Oakland area, on contributing to Backdrop CMS. In support of these efforts, we have decided to announce an informal Backdrop CMS contribution day. If you are a supporter of the Backdrop project and have been looking for an opportunity to contribute, Saturday would be a great opportunity to jump in and help us with a task, regardless of where you are.
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.
This year's Twin Cities Drupal Camp was as good as ever, with a great venue (Thanks University of St Thomas!) quality session content (thanks speakers!) enjoyable parties (thanks organizers!) and attendees who are, of course, Minnesota nice.
Joseph and I went to Drupal Camp Utah on May 4th, 2018 (Star Wars Day). This was our 3rd camp at Utah, but it’s been a while since our last one, so there were a lot of unfamiliar faces, but that’s never bothered us before.
This year's DrupalCon North America may have been one of my favorites so far. Baltimore was a wonderful city, the sessions I attended were incredibly inspiring, and the convention itself was extremely well-organized. And, for the first time, I started to feel comfortable that Drupal 8 was finding its footing instead of being stuck in "wait-and-see mode."
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!
This year at the Twin Cities Drupal Camp there was a full-day Backdrop CMS training workshop to kick off the event. As opposed to previous workshops on Backdrop, the students in this class were primarily decision makers - those responsible for deciding whether Backdrop was suitable for their new projects, existing sites, entire departments, or website development shops. It would appear that it is finally time to start making decisions about the future!
