Drupal Community Events : At a Glance
Drupal is the world’s leading open source digital experience platform (DXP). It leads the pack in delivering innovative digital transformational tools to site builders from its conception in 2001. Drupal, though called a Content Management System, has evolved to be much more than that.
Robust, scalable, flexible, secure, free and modular in nature Drupal is ideal for almost any application . Another strong point of Drupal is its huge community backing-more like a fan base! Drupalists meet quite often through community events organized throughout the year!
Here is a quick look at some of the major Drupal meetups that happen throughout the year.
Two major Drupal Conferences are held annually, namely DrupalCon North America and DrupalCon Europe.
Then there are DrupalCamps. These meetups are more for the technical people in Drupal. These meetups are designed for smaller regional Drupal Communities. Here notes are shared and compared. These are great places to have development based troubleshooting discussions and feedback. These are also great opportunities for people to get to know others in the community. And of course be part of the strong Drupal Community.
Here are some of the DrupalCamps that are coming up in the USA, and Canada :
