The New England Drupal Camp started in 2014 and was founded by passionate Drupal enthusiasts from (mostly) Rhode Island. Each year, a diverse group of Drupalers from New England have contributed to the organization and success of NEDCamp.
Our mission is to grow the Drupal expertise and community in New England.
What is Drupal?
Drupal is content management software. It's used to make many of the websites and applications you use every day. Drupal has great standard features, like easy content authoring, reliable performance, and excellent security. But what sets it apart is its flexibility; modularity is one of its core principles. Its tools help you build the versatile, structured content that dynamic web experiences need.
It's also a great choice for creating integrated digital frameworks. You can extend it with any one, or many, of thousands of add-ons. Modules expand Drupal's functionality. Themes let you customize your content's presentation. Distributions are packaged Drupal bundles you can use as starter-kits. Mix and match these components to enhance Drupal's core abilities. Or, integrate Drupal with external services and other applications in your infrastructure. No other content management software is this powerful and scalable.
The Drupal project is open source software. Anyone can download, use, work on, and share it with others. It's built on principles like collaboration, globalism, and innovation. It's distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). There are no licensing fees, ever. Drupal will always be free.
What is a Drupal Camp?
A DrupalCamp is a one- to two-day event that focuses on Drupal, and brings together people from a geographical region. The goals are:
- knowledge sharing -- getting the community together to help each other learn
- increasing awareness of the Drupal community and helping it grow
The term "Camp" comes from Barcamp, which is a self-organized informal non-conference, and gets across the idea that it doesn't need to be fancy.
