Drupal Roadshow Kickoff

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:

Focus and Keynote for 2019

"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. 

Session Submission is Open

Session submission will end on September 23, 2019.

Who can submit?  We invite rookies, pros and everyone in between. We will be selecting proposals based on a variety of criteria, not only experience.   Under-represented groups are encouraged to submit. 

First Time Presenters - In 2019, NEDCamp is earmarking four speaking opportunities for first time speakers.   We want new voices and ideas to be heard.  

Is there a deadline for submissions?  Session proposals will be accepted on or before September 23, 2018

Save the date 2017

Our vision to move the New England Drupal Camp throughout the region began in 2016 with the help of New Hampshire Drupal Group.  Our destination was Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester.  SNHU was a great venue and the conference was a success.

We are happy to announce New England Drupal Camp will be held on November 17-18, 2017 at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester MA.  Friday (11/17) is our training day and Saturday (11/18) is our conference session day.

Contrib Sprint at NEDCamp

One of our goals of running NEDCamp is to promote giving back to Open Source Software, specifically our CMS of choice, Drupal.   We are pleased to announce that NEDCamp 2016 will include a contribution sprint.  A contribution sprint, or contrib sprint for short, will give attendees a chance to break the ice on giving back to the community, something we strongly advocate.  Being led by Damien McKenna, one of the Drupal community’s leading contributors, the NEDCamp contrib sprint will focus on finishing off one of Drupal’s most highly used modules - Metatag.
