MidCamp is almost here!  We’re thrilled to kick-off sessions tomorrow (3/19) and have a full line-up from 9:00am – 3:45pm CDT.

Volunteers needed!

Be a part of something BIG! Help MidCamp go virtual by volunteering! We have plenty of space for those who want to contribute. We need room monitors and hosts to keep the Zoom presentations running smoothly! After all, there are many ways to give back to #Drupal besides code. Fill out our volunteer survey if you’re interested. We’ll have a training at 4PM CDT today, and it will be recorded for folks who aren’t able to join. Check #volunteers in the MidCamp Slack for more info.

Virtual game night sponsored by

Don’t forget to join us tomorrow (3/19) evening, from 6-9pm CDT, to take part in a gaming session group. There will be digital adaptations of tabletop games available directly from your web browser. Look forward to gaming with you!
