FAQ

What is a DrupalCamp?

Don't bring a sleeping bag and a tent, it's not that kind of camp. Think of DrupalCamp as a conference, where every hour, presenters are giving sessions on a variety of Drupal-related topics. You choose the topics that most interest you, and travel from room to room throughout the day. We get together, we learn new things, meet new people, exchange ideas and thoughts. It's educational and it's fun.

What is Drupal?

Drupal is a free open-source content management system (CMS) written in the PHP programming language. Drupal allows anyone to easily publish, manage and organize a wide variety of content on a website. Hundreds of thousands of people and organizations are using Drupal to power an endless variety of sites. Learn more at www.drupal.org.
