Remember the summer days when time was spent in the great outdoors chasing friends through the woods and discovering new worlds? Or perhaps, summer camp might have been classes at a museum filled with art or at the zoo tending to the elephants. Camps and campers typically equate to fun, summertime activity.
June 7 and 8 will provide an opportunity to attend another type of camp…”Drupal Camp.” Rather than spending time in the great outdoors, the local Drupal community will set up camp at Chattanooga State to share in the adventures of using, programming and learning about all things Drupal.
For those who may not have seen my previous posts, Drupal is an open-source content management system (CMS). Currently, we use OU Campus as our CMS but not for much longer. Soon, we will migrate to Drupal.
Drupal camps are training and learning opportunities for the Drupal user/programmer community to come together to share techniques, tips and implementation stories. As the event organizers say, “The event is catered toward everyone – curious beginners, designers, developers and business owners are all welcome!”
For a small investment, you can be part of two jam-packed days of learning, including an opportunity to attend an introduction to Drupal 8 for beginners on Saturday, June 8.
Several tracks available include Beginner, Project Management and Consulting, Site-Building and Development and Performance. Something for everyone!
I’m planning to attend to learn more about how other institutions have moved to Drupal, as well as to gather project management tips through networking with colleagues who have already been down this road.
The UTC Office of Communications and Marketing is a sponsor of this event, and the UTC Web Team will attend.

You can come along with our 147 friends in the local Drupal community and join us as we head off to summer camp. No frogs will be captured in the process, but we might get to eat lunch outside.
