Over 8 years have passed since there was a DrupalCamp in tropical Nicaragua. With the help of a diverse group of volunteers, sponsors, and university faculty staff, we held our second one. DrupalCamp Lagos y Volcanes ("Lakes & Volcanoes") was a great success with over 100 people attending in 2 days. It was a big undertaking so we followed giants' footsteps to prepare for our event. Lots of the ideas were taken from some of the organizers' experience while attending Drupal events.
In the next few weeks, Mauricio Dinarte (dinarcon on drupal.org) will be traveling to deliver his expertise to multiple Drupal events in Europe and America. He is on a mission to continue sharing the knowledge gained from many years as an active member of the Drupal community. Over the last few years he has presented numerous sessions and full day trainings at more than 18 Drupal camp— so you may have been at one of his presentations about Drupal basic concepts, twig recipes, or D8 migrations!
FreeScholar is back in Boston from GLADCamp, the Greater Los Angeles Drupal Camp, a free community three-day event and one of the best camps I have attended. The theme was "Drupal for Good" and it delivered from the opening keynote to the closing barn raising.
