Why attend the weekend event

About the weekend

DrupalCamp London brings together hundreds of people from across the globe who use, develop, design, and support the Drupal platform. It’s a chance for Drupalers from all backgrounds to meet, discuss, and engage in the Drupal community and project. 

Over the weekend we have 3 Keynote speakers, a choice of over 40 sessions to attend, BoFs (Birds of a Feather) talks, Sprints, hot lunch provided (both days), and a Saturday social. With all the activity there is something for everyone to get involved in.

The event is held at City, University of London on Saturday the 3rd and Sunday the 4th March 2018. Reception and breakfast from 8am with our first keynote speaker at 9am. A full schedule of times and speakers, and sessions will follow.

Benefits of attending

Networking

Over 500 people attended the weekend event last year and we are expecting it to grow even more this year. Not all attendees are devs either, with a fair share of managers, designers, C-Level, and UX leads there's a great opportunity for all skillsets to interact with each other. Big brands use Drupal (MTV, Visit England, Royal.gov, Guardian, Twitter, Disney) and this is a chance to meet with people from those companies to compare notes, and learn from each other.

Recruitment

As above, the chance to meet so many people from various skill sets is a great way to line up potential interviews and hires for any aspect of your business. At the very least you'll be able to meet interesting people for any future potential hires.

Marketing & Raising company profile

Attending an event with a huge turnout is a great way to meet people and talk to them about what you and your company does. Embedding your name within the tight knit Drupal community can attract the attention of other companies. 

Sponsoring the camp means that your logo and additional information can be seen around the camp, in tote bags given to attendees, and online. The social and sponsors stands are the perfect chance to talk to other companies and people attending DrupalCamp, to find out how they use Drupal for their benefit.

Learning

DrupalCamp isn't just for Devs, over the weekend there are sessions on a range of topics including community & business, UX, and general site building/using Drupal. The technical topics aren’t only restricted to Drupal as well, giving developers (and others) the ability to learn more about core coding concepts and methodologies. The methods and techniques learnt aid the day to day development as well as helping with long term work being carried out.

There’s not just the sessions either, BoFs (birds of a feather) sessions are ad hoc get-togethers people can arrange on any topic, allowing a free discussion to share ideas.

Warm fuzzy feeling/giving back

Drupal (like any open source software) wouldn't survive without the community. Camps and other events allow that community to come together and see first hand that they’re giving back to a community that helps power their tech, maintains their interests, and enables them to make a living.

From the 2017 attendees that opted to share their reason:

Get involved

There are various ways you can get involved with DrupalCamp London

Sponsor

Sponsoring is a great way to help the camp and the community. We have various packages available and in return you'll be thanked online, on social media, in our printed material, email newsletters, as well as around the venue over the event as well (depending on sponsorship level)! You can see the various packages available as well as how to get in touch over on our sponsorship page.

Attend

By buying tickets and attending the event you'll get to see first hand how the community can come together. You'll get to learn, meet new people, and gain new experiences from Drupal. You can buy your tickets over on our payments site.

Sprint

Want to get your hand dirty in code, help test, or update documentation? Then sprinting is for you, not just for seasoned devs sprinting is open to everyone. With each sprint having a sprint mentor you can gain advice and guidance on giving back directly to Drupal.org. Find out more about sprinting and sign up on our sprints page.

Submit sessions

Sessions are short talks given by people on a range of available topics. Lasting up to 45mins (the speaker can use as much or little of this time as they want) it's a great way to learn something new or something more about a topic you already have an interest in. Fancy submitting a session? We have had many first time speakers of the years and will help as much as we can with any questions and prep. You can find out more about the sessions and submit on our sessions page.

Volunteer

We couldn't run the weekend without a group of volunteers helping us. You can apply to volunteer over the weekend on our sign up page. Volunteers gain a free ticket to the camp.

BoFs

BoFs (birds of a feather) sessions are ad hoc get-togethers people can arrange on any topic, allowing a free discussion to share ideas. You can create your own or join someone else's BoF. BoF submissions open soon and can be created up to and over the weekend event as well.

Understudy

New for this year we're looking for people who want to learn how we organise and run the camp, with a mindset to be more involved in running it in 2019. You can read more about becoming and understudy and apply here.
