I wanted to make everyone aware that the Drupalcamp Atlanta 2010 website
has officially launched and registration is now open. The event will be held on Saturday, October 2nd at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. Ticket prices are a modest $25 for an all-day conference badge and for $50 you can be an individual sponsor, which will include a t-shirt and other special recognition. If your organization is interested sponsoring Drupalcamp Atlanta
, please contact me and I would be glad to send a benefits package. I would encourage you to sign-up as soon as possible ? we must cap attendance at 225 due to venue limitations and expect a sell-out.
In addition, the ability to submit sessions
is now available on the website, and will close on September 10th ? please note that you must be a registered attendee to put forward a presentation. This year we have added the ability to rate sessions and submit comments to encourage more feedback and interaction. Obviously, the sooner you can submit your session the better in order to maximize exposure for your topic. The organizing committee will then select the final schedule.
Next, do not forget this Thursday night (August 5th) from 8 ? 10pm
the Atlanta Drupal User Group (ADUG) welcomes Dries Buytaert, the original creator of Drupal. There are already 60+ registered for this highly anticipated gathering, and it will be an awesome opportunity to network and get plugged in with others from the local Drupal community.
Finally, I am proud to report that Atlanta has a made a ?short? list of North American cities that is currently being evaluated to host Drupalcon 2012, the bi-annual event that brings together thousands or participants. However, we all need to show our enthusiasm, support and get behind Atlanta being selected by completing a poll
that is being overseen by the Drupal Association?s Organizing Committee. It took me less than 3 minutes to complete. Again, be sure to vote Atlanta as your first choice, but hurry ? voting ends on August 4th at midnightEST.
