When I first heard that the a number of Drupalers in South Carolina were planning a camp, I was excited, but knee deep in organizing the Charlotte Drupal-Drive with Thomas Lattimore. All I could do at the time was mentally commit to going.
Last Saturday (February 22nd, 2014), thirty-one Drupalers joined together at Classic Graphics for the Charlotte Drupal Drive-in. The day was full of presentations, BOFs, and general chatting about Drupal and related web technologies.
The day-long, un-conference-style event was the brainchild of Thomas Lattimore. After CharDUG wasn't able to pull together the human resources to repeat the success of DrupalCamp Charlotte 2012, Thomas mentioned that he had an idea. Since he knew organizers had limited time to commit to planning, he wanted to host an un-conference-style event, allowing for simpler planning than a full-blown Drupal camp. You can learn more about his concept on the DruaplEasy Podcast.
The Charlotte Drupal Drive-in is coming up on February 22nd. I just wanted to take a moment and highlight ours sponsors and the value they are bringing to making this event happen.
Classic Graphics is providing us with a fantastic facility with a large training room and four smaller conferences rooms. Each with projectors. Classic is also providing print marketing materials and access to their talented creative department for the event.
Drupal Association is providing a community cultivation grant which is funding all catering needs for this event so our attendees never have to leave the facility for food.
Command Partners is providing a $100 Apple iTunes card to giveaway and marketing skills to help promote the event.
Thanks to these sponsors for their generosity. Without them, the event just wouldn't happen. There is still time to register for the event. Head over to http://charlottedrupaldrive.in and register today!
