We had a record breaking number of sessions submissions this year, making our job extremely difficult on how to choose the best content for this year's camp. We have 45 sessions spread across four concurrent rooms planned for Friday and Saturday.
With sessions like Inclusive Development: Using Styleguides to Improve Website Accessibility; Understanding Drupal; The Butler Did It: Putting Jenkins To Work For You; and Building Great Teams, we have something for everyone!
On Thursday, we have four great full day Training sessions planned. We have lined up a group of incredible trainers who are going to donate their time to lead full day, in depth training sessions. Each session is $40, and is additional to the price of the camp.

Drupal is known for being a powerful platform with a steep learning curve. This course will give you an introduction to the world of Drupal and soften that learning curve so you can get up-to-speed with Drupal quickly. We'll cover fundamental Drupal concepts and terminology, and give you the hands-on experience you need to dive deeper.
Whether you're a developer using Drupal for the first time, a content editor looking for an introduction to Drupal administration, or a site builder wanting to know how to structure a new Drupal website, this course will get you started on the right foot.
The course includes step-by-step exercises to help you understand the process of creating a Drupal site. It also includes independent exercises to help you think through the process of building out a website for your particular use case or organization.
This workshop will familiarize front-end developers with Drupal 8's theme system through a combination of presentations, and hands-on exercises. Whether your goal is to theme your personal site, pass the Acquia front-end developer certification, or upgrade your skills for a job our goal is to provide students with a solid foundation on which to start and enough knowledge to continue to practice and learn on their own.
Are you responsible for project management, content, or vendor selection and preparing to work with Drupal? This one-day training delivers all of the tools you need to get started.
