Recap of DrupalCamp New Hampshire 2011

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.

The camp had a great turnout, with over 140 hearty New Englanders (and two foolish Floridians!) braving an epic blizzard (dubbed "Snowtober") that knocked out power for much of the state.

My two favorite sessions were Jason Savino's presentation on his jQuery Mobile module and Damien McKenna's presentation on contributing to d.o issue queues.

I really enjoyed having a chance to present on Evolving Web's approach to Drupal testing and QA, which included Alex's impromptu demo of Evolving Web's custom Redmine plugins for Google Spreadsheet integration and simplified wiki editing.

The after-party at a local microbrewery was a great way to reconnect with friends and catch up on Drupal gossip while drinking a locally brewed pumpkin ale and watching the snow fall. I'm very glad that the power didn't go out until midnight!

Prep for DrupalCamp New Hampshire I'd like to thank Jake Strawn (@himerus) and Michelle Lauer (@bymiche), for organizing a great event, and for hosting me and other attendees at their place for two nights. They're simply an awesome Drupal couple.
