Last weekend, we headed down to Manchester for DrupalCamp New Hampshire. Building on last year's successful Drupal beginner training day, the local user group organized an awesome one-day camp with 30+ great sessions, training, and even a code sprint.
Its often been said that the best way to get involved in the Drupal community is to dive in head-first and see where to help out. For the past year or so I’ve been nervous about giving my input on support forums and editing documentation. Always questioning my knowledge, I took the easy route by encouraging others to do so first. DrupalCon London was the first time I participated in a code sprint (well, documentation sprint), and I have to say that I’m a believer!
Last weekend, five members of our team went down to Boston for the third annual Drupal Design Camp. Held on the MIT campus at the Stata Center, the camp was a great success, extremely well organized, and lots of fun to attend. On the drive back to Montreal, I was thinking about why Drupal Camp is so important to both building a local Drupal community, and to fostering the talents of individuals.
This year is going to be my first DrupalCamp ever, and I have to say it's been amazing to watch the community pull together to make this happen!
Recently, I saw a blog post making its way around the web from Max Gladwell, entitled “10 ways to change the world through social media.”
