Bay Area Drupal Camp 2012


CivicActions is proud to announce our sponsorship of the 2012 Bay Area DrupalCamp. At CivicActions, we love sharing and connection, and that's what Drupalcamps are all about. It's inspiring to see community in action, and Drupalcamps are where the strands of community fabric are weaved into the tapestry of technical brilliance that is the Drupal community. 

One of the things that amazes me about this Drupalcamp is that there are over 1400 registrants SO FAR, with many more expected to walk up on the day of the event.  I remember our participation at the Drupal Convention in Barcelona, which had something like 450 people total.  It wasn't until 2009 in DC when our numbers breached a thousand, with about 1400 attending. It's amazing to watch the progress of Drupal as a platform and the community that has emerged around it. 

At CivicActions, we spend a lot of time thinking about how to change the world.  One thing that has always been clear to us is that it's COMMUNITY that will bring change.  Our mission from the start was to help non-profits and socially responsible businesses connect with and build their communities.  When we produced the first-ever DrupalCamp (in April 2006), there were about 25 in attendance. It's both gratifying and exciting to see this kind of growth.  Now there are Drupalcamps all around the world from Pennsylvania to Pakistan.

Special thanks to Chapter 3 and the volunteer organizers for BADCAMP, and the organizers of DrupalCamps everywhere for creating the petri dish in which we build our community.  It's an honor to be part of if.
