So what is a DrupalCamp? DrupalCamps happen all over the world and while they can differ in format and delivery, the idea is that they are community driven and provide a space for the community to learn, share, collaborate whilst having fun together. You could look at it as an extended, turbo-charged meetup.
Taking place over one or more days, the camps are voluntarily organised and invite attendees to be at the centre of the process through open calls for speakers either before or at the event. The format is usually structured, but also informal, with spaces provided for attendees to work on new ideas, sprint developments and continue making Drupal amazing. Camps in the past have included not only code talks but discussion about design, user experience, and information architecture.
DrupalCamps have happened across the UK including London, Manchester, Oxford, Scotland, Cambridge, Brighton, Leeds and more but this is the first one to take place in the North East*.
The North East Community is a small but dedicated group, we hope that a DrupalCamp will help to boost the knowledge and takeup of Drupal in the region and place it firmly on the Drupal map.
*By North East we refer to the UK region including Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Teesside. Football allegiances are put aside for the sake of the camp!
