MidCamp – Midwest Drupal Camp: MidCamp 2021: Get Started with Drupal

MidCamp 2021: Get Started with Drupal

MidCamp 2021 is less than two weeks away, and tickets are on sale now. We’re accepting topic submissions for Thursday’s “Meet the Drupal Community” day and Friday’s “Share Your Knowledge” Unconference. Our job board is filling up, and next week is NERD Summit—a three-day inclusive, community building tech event based in New England. 

This email is focused on our activities for folks new to Drupal or our community. If you’re already a friend of MidCamp, stop now and forward this email to a friend or colleague, please!

Where to begin

If you’re not even sure about Drupal, let alone MidCamp, join us (for free!) for a few hours on Wednesday morning. We’ll introduce you to Drupal, the community, and MidCamp. After these three sessions, you’ll have all you need to make the most out of the rest of camp as an attendee.

Find your voice

Attending MidCamp is a great start, but the best way to learn something is to teach it. On Wednesday afternoon, we’ll hold a series of (also free) workshops for folks who are interested in public speaking. During these hands-on sessions, we’ll look at what has stopped you from speaking in the past—and explore how to move past your fears. We will discuss some common myths about public speaking, different talk formats, and we will focus on finding your areas of expertise.

No technical knowledge is needed, everyone has something to share!

Dive into local development

During camp, we’re planning a workshop to provide opportunities to learn more about local development best practices. We’ll walk you through getting Drupal set up on your own machine and prepare you for Saturday contribution activities. Look out for more details, coming soon.
