A few months ago I had the privilege of speaking at DrupalCamp Atlanta. The talk I gave covered the CMS selection process across multiple languages with Open and Closed source Content Management Systems. While at first glance it might appear an easy choice to go to your usual CMS, it might not always be the right choice.
I am often presented with visions of poor and haggard open source enthusiasts walking the streets in disarray and varying degrees of sanity. These programmers, artists and content managers could be working for upstanding corporations earning an honest dollar, instead they sit around working on projects with no monetary value. It's bad enough that we have hordes of these people already but sadly they are training a new generation of open source zealots to tread in their meaningless empty footsteps.
So you want to create a DrupalCamp by where you live eh? Great, running a camp isn't actually as hard or crazy as you might think. Here are my lessons learned from my experience in co-running the first Florida Drupal Camp for the Florida Drupal Group (I get a nickel every time I mention Florida or Drupal).
Florida Drupal Users Group is happy to invite you and your Drupal interested friends to the first Florida Drupal Camp on Saturday February 7th from 9AM to 5PM yes a full day of Drupal love. What could be better than enjoying a day of Drupal in sunny Florida in the winter time?
This event is open to everybody from novices all the way up to experts. Even if you've never heard of Drupal, you're welcome to come.
