DrupalCamp Toronto 2012

Nov 18, 2012 · by Suzanne Dergacheva

Last week, I headed to Toronto for DrupalCamp Toronto 2012. Toronto has a thriving Drupal community and the camp attracts a mix of Drupal developers, site builders, designers, and end users. With more and more organizations in the city using Drupal, the camp is a great place to share knowledge, do networking, and find out what's going on in the larger Drupal community.

This year's camp was held at the recently renovated Burroughes Building at Queen and Bathurst. The venue's open concept layout promoted lots of interaction among attendees.

The camp featured three keynotes including Angie Byron's presentation on the progress of Drupal 8. There was also a Drupal 8 accessibility sprint on Sunday.

Pre-Camp Drupal Training in Toronto

During the two days before the camp, Evolving Web organized two Drupal training sessions at the Centre for Social Innovation in the Annex. We held another of the popular Drupal in a Day courses and, for the first time in Toronto, our first Drupal for Developers course.

Views Configuration Presentation

At the camp itself, I did a presentation on Views Configuration for intermediate users. Views is one of Drupal's key contributed modules, and a is Views configuration is central to the site building process. In addition to talking about contextual filters, relationships, and other features of Views, I discussed modules that extend Views by providing more options for formatting and filtering Views content.
