What is Drupal? - Drupal is an open source modular platform used to build everything from personal blogs to enterprise applications. Whitehouse.gov, Grammys.com, Popsci.com and hundreds of other businesses, government agencies and organization sites use Drupal because it is free, flexible, and is constantly being improved by the hundreds of thousands of dedicated developers that are part of the Drupal Community.

Day 1: 4-track Learning Experience

Beginner Track - Enthusiasts, first-timers, non-programmers, webmasters, and marketing people, as well as anyone tasked with updating sites will benefit from these sessions to provide a practical overview of Drupal. You’ll learn the basics, get practical tips, tap into great resources and gain insight as a real site is built before your eyes.

Two dedicated Drupal Hands-On tracks for programmers, webmasters, themers and others seeking to get insight and best practices from the brightest Drupallers we know. These sessions are the heart of Florida DrupalCamp, and this year will also feature valuable sessions on new features in Drupal 7.

Business and Social Media Track

Social Media Club of Orlando is contributing heavily to this first ever Business and Social Media Track for non-technical people, decision makers, and those who need to get a better understanding of what Drupal can do. You’ll learn the basic principals, benefits, and challenges in using Drupal with popular social media tools and the advantages of the platform and its dedicated developer community.


Birds of a Feather sessions presented in a dedicated room throughout the day where you can get help, get some work done, or create your own unconference.

Networking – After the last screen goes dark, the Florida DrupalCamp social scene lights up with an evening designed for fun and fellowship at the Shipyard Brewery in Winter Park. It’s a chance to get to know the experts, meet the newbies, and develop a few new friendships.

Day 2: Site building sprint for a cause

2nd Annual "Coding for a Cause".
This year, we will be building a site for the 501(c)3 Central Florida Computer Society, which will be celebrating its 30th birthday next year. Our annual community selection process chose CFCS as the beneficiary of Coding for a Cause based on their active participation and support of the local Drupal community.

The Central Florida Computer Society (CFCS) is a charitable, scientific, and educational organization formed to encourage interest in the operation and development of computers, in general, for the benefit of the members of the Society and the general public.

Incorporated in February of 1982, we endeavor to facilitate the free exchange of information among those with an interest in computer science in the Central Florida area and support and encourage the teaching of computer techniques.
