Getting excited about the first DrupalCamp Boone

I’m heading up to Boone, NC this weekend to attend my first DrupalCamp and the first DrupalCamp held in Boone. My first trip to Boone was for Leadership North Carolina orientation a few years ago. Then we went on a mini-family get-away last summer with my in-laws to check out the Tweetsie Railroad with our then, 3-year old son Zander.

This weekend, I’m looking forward to learning more about Drupal, including sessions like CSS in Drupal and Making Drupal Friendli(er) for Content Editors.The keynote with Chris Grams, my former Director at Red Hat, should be a good treat for all Drupalers. The after-camp social event at Char looks like fun too.

I submitted a session and it got accepted. I’ll be talking about Creating online community the open source way, which will highlight some of the Drupal components being used on opensource.com.  The main focus will be around online community building and fostering participation via social media and traditional methods.

Can’t wait for the event!

(PS – I know it’s ironic to post about Drupal on a WordPress powered blog, but, we just need a blog here…for now)
