Another DrupalCamp Dallas has come and gone, and thanks to our speakers, sponsors and campers, #5 this year was certainly a resounding success.
Look for a post-Camp survey arriving in your email soon, and please be honest with your feedback, so we can have an even better Camp next year.
Sat, April 13, 2013; Curtis Culwell Center, Garland, TX
Organized for the fifth year by the Dallas Drupal Users Group and LevelTen Interactive, DrupalCamp Dallas is a community-centered event for learning, teaching and sharing Drupal, the premier open source Content Management Framework for building marketing-leading websites and web applications.
Join us all day Saturday, April 13th for around 20 diverse sessions, from beginner to advanced, for Drupal admins and users, sitebuilders, themers and developers. Our Keynote speaker will be Jeff Walpole from Phase2.
Whether you call it an intranet, a portal, social software or a collaboration tool, chances are your organization has a web-accessible system for knowledge management.
The bad news is that it may fail. A Gartner study shows that 80% of social business efforts will not achieve their intended purpose. Can Drupal be a disruptive force in this space? Drupal excels in third party integrations, offers flexibility, and unlike most options, is open source. But the industry leaders are large and getting larger.
How can we develop an open source collaboration software strategy that is successful?
Just added - if you buy a ticket to the Results Oriented Web (ROW) Summit at the same venue on Friday, you can attend a full day of Intro to Drupal training at the same time. You'll go from Drupal newbie to building your first site in just one day. And attend any ROW sessions you'd like.

Drupal in a Day
Drupal in a Day is a beginner level workshop designed to walk attendees through the creation of a Drupal website from start to finish. Using the instructor's prebuilt Drupal site for reference, participants will begin with a blank website and from there learn how to add and manage users as well as custom content (including turning on and off comments, or setting comments to read only). This workshop also covers creation of custom content types and views to display this content in various parts throughtout the site including custom blocks and list pages.
Because this class is designed to be an overview and not an in-depth course, it is perfect for people who are looking for a hands-on introduction, or are on the fence about using Drupal. Those seeking a more comprehensive Drupal site-building workshop should attend the Drupal for Site Builders course.
The workshop fee includes lunch and materials. It is recommended that you bring your own laptop. If you are unable to bring a laptop, we will supply you with a "loaner" provided that advanced notice is given to the workshop coordinator.

Attendees should have an interest in learning about content management systems. No prior web development or Drupal skills are required. Some previous understanding of content management & Drupal are helpful.
