Lessons learned from hosting a DrupalCamp

(2 minute read)

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).

These lessons are what I took away but please remember to read the Drupal Camp Organization Guide since it has tons of helpful information.

Overall, working on the first Florida Drupal Camp was a blast andbelieveit or not I will do it again… next year. It is a lot of hard work but well worth it in the long run both for you and the community. I can’t stress how important community is to Drupal, even if you can’t code, design or do other technical things, you can always start up a local Drupal group or help somebody out with Drupal or other open source software.

The point of all my ramblings, go out there, do something and make a difference even if its little, it’s worth it.
