Taking place July 20th, 2011

Drupal Camp has booked 4 rooms in the IST building for the July 20th 2011 event. 113, 202, 206, and 209

Drupal Camp PSU is a free, community driven event taking place the day before Learning Design Summer Camp.  The topics are based on the survey but we'll cover just about anything people want covered.  There are 2 main presentation rooms, and 2 small group discussion rooms.  One of these will be reserved for some other LDSC activities and another will be for conversations about topics not covered in the session / a more private space then the hallway.  Presentations that are geared to more specific groups will also be placed in this "bonus track".

All talks at this event will be discussing either Drupal 6 or 7.  The major differences between 6 and 7 are code and usability.  As they are functionality the same (either through additional modules or out of the box) these talks should benefit users of either version.  I can say now that many of the discussions will be from a Drupal 6 context and I'll be briefly going over the whole versioning debate in my opening talk.

If you are interested in talking about something please let know and we'll see what we can pen you in for.  Even if you've just used a Drupal site before, you have knowledge that others are interested in.  We'll be having a few open ended conversation / presentations as well as one session for people to just show-case some of the work they've done and answer questions anyone might have.  Come out and see just how big our community is.  Bryan plans on giving some brief remarks about the state of Drupal at Penn State to start the day but other then that this is very much in the barcamp / un-conference style of community driven topics and scheduling.

WE ARE...Drupal @ Penn State.

Question tool, leaving link here in case anyone wants to use it for their session. Would be good for the Q/A / "round-table" type of ones:

Social Media

Hash tag it up for posts about the event at #drupalpsu  . Also be sure to follow / tweet @psu_drupal and @psu_elms .  Make sure you get just plain #drupal and #psu in there too sometimes, show everyone how massive our community really is.
