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.

Backdrop CMS at the Twin Cities Drupal Camp (and security + affordability)

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!

Backdrop CMS in Guadalajara

Last weekend Nate & I headed south to Guadalajara in order to attend Drupal Camp Mexico. While there we gave our standard Backdrop talk with a few new twists.

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!

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!

Backdrop CMS at Drupal Camp Utah 2018

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.

Backdrop Contribution Day - April 20, 2019

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.
