NEDCamp 2020

Blog

As we announced earlier, we’re going fully virtual this year, but with a twist. Instead of the back-to-back sessions of a typical online conference, we’re trying a new format that we’re calling the BOFCon.

As DrupalCon describes, Birds of a Feather (BOFs) are informal gatherings of like-minded individuals who wish to discuss a certain topic with an open conversational format. BOFs are one of the many things that make our global Drupal community so special.

After much deliberation, we’re excited to announce our plans for New England Drupal Camp 2020. Mark your calendars for Friday, November 6, 2020, and get ready for a NEDCamp like you’ve never seen before.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we’re going fully virtual this year, but with a twist. Instead of the back-to-back sessions of a typical online conference, we’re trying a new format that we’re calling the BOFCon.

Yesterday, September 18, in Bow, New Hampshire, the first Drupal Roadshow kicked off.  For a half-day,  the NEDCamp organizing team shared their expertise, experience and passion for Drupal.    Three presentations covered the primary topics of Choosing Drupal, Planning a Drupal project and Using Drupal.   A case study helped provide context for the material.  

The Drupal Roadshow was a successful experience for attendees and presenters.    What the attendees had to say:

"Being human" means to remember that while the digital world is run by robots, it is not built by robots. It is built by people. If we want to build and accomplish great things, we need to keep in mind the human side of the digital world. We need to protect the health, well being, and growth of our teams, our peer, and ourselves.

NEDCamp's focus for 2019 is "Being Human" and will be anchored by a keynote panel with Dori Kelner, J.D. Flynn, and Matt Westagate. Each brings a unique perspective about Being Human in the digital world.
