This year, DC's two premier Drupal events, Capital Camp and Gov Days were combined into a single conference held on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda. Trellon was proud to be a sponsor of this event, and I was particularly happy to attend. Not only was it a great Drupalcamp, but it gave me the opportunity to visit with some of my clients at NIH.

Last week I attended LatinoWare 2011 in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, which also hosted, among a number of events, DrupalCamp Foz. There hasn't been a Drupalcamp in Brazil for some time already, so this was a really important event for the Drupal community in Brazil. The community is growing in Brazil and other Latin America countries. At the Drupalcamp, we had representatives from Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, and Mexico. We also had the presence of our dear Drupal creator, Dries Buytaert.
We got back from DrupalCamp Chicago last week, flushed with success! Michael Haggerty ended up leading two sessions on CiviCRM, introducing it in depth to several of the conferencegoers. Our most recent developer hire, Kyle Cunningham, got to lead an unconference session on forms API as well. Personally, I was blown away by what he can do with that often cumbersome part of the Drupal interface. We're looking forward to being able to package some of his tricks into modules in the near future. Even my presentation was a success, despite some minor technical issues.
All of us at Trellon are getting excited for DrupalCamp Chicago in a couple of weeks. The presentations look really interesting: key technologies like Domain Access, CiviCRM, and Panels are all featured... and this Trellonaut in particular is looking forward to learning more about those incredibly powerful tools.
The weekend of June 27th and 28th saw over 200 Drupalers, including myself, flock to Denver for the annual DrupalCamp Colorado. Trellon was proud to sponsor the event. The fact that number of attendees doubled since last year shows the growth and momentum surrounding Drupal. This year, the event was combined with an Ubercamp- a gathering of Ubercart developers and enthusiasts.
