What is DrupalCamp?
UT Austin DrupalCamp is a one-day conference focusing entirely on Drupal for UT Austin Web professionals, enthusiasts and interested parties.
There are a growing number of Drupal Web development projects on campus and an equally growing number of Drupal developers. A small group of these developers recognized that we can effectively help each other, share resources and build a more manageable community, right here on campus!

Whether you’re new to Drupal or an experienced Drupal developer, the UT Austin DrupalCamp has something for you.
For the newbies, the two-hour course Hello, Drupal! will kick-off your day and equip you with the basics you'll need to get started. (If you're really new, be sure to visit Drupal.org for a pre-camp introduction.)
If you consider yourself a Drupalite then you will start the day diving in to some advanced topics.To close out the morning, our featured speaker, Randolph Bias, associate professor from the School of Information, will share information about Information eXperience (IX) design.
The afternoon sessions are geared for all levels. There will be multiple sessions held during each time slot so you will need to pick the session you find most relevant. All the sessions except Hello, Drupal! are one-hour long with time for questions and answers. Visit the Sessions page for details.
