This autumn, DrupalCamp will be again held in Leuven

DrupalCampOur small country can do wonders. But chocolate and beer are not the only things we have to offer, as we also have a fantastic content management system: Drupal. Originally written by Dries Buytaert as a message board, it has now become a free open source system that is used on at least 2.1% of all the websites in the world.

The community that powers Drupal contributed to 20,100 add-ons, making it possible to expand and change Drupal’s core features. And the great thing is that Drupal is an advanced programming interface for developers, but no programming knowledge is required for the installation and maintenance of a simple website.

This Drupal community will soon meet in Leuven, on 14 and 15 September 2013. During these two days, many info sessions will be held on building sites, front-end and back-end development, with presentations of several business cases, all given by experts in the field. Until 25 August, you too can submit a topic for an info session or a presentation (lasting about 45 minutes).

All those interested—beginners or Drupal aficionados—will be welcome in the Katholieke Hogeschool Leuven (department Gezondheidszorg en Technologie). During the coffee break, you will get the chance to meet other enthusiasts and exchange ideas with them. On Saturday evening, there will be a BBQ for those who are hungry, which should definitely help loosen tongues.

Obviously, Combell supports this DrupalCamp by sponsoring the event. By the way, Drupal is one of the content management systems that Combell can install for free for its customers who chose a Combell hosting package.

For further information, please visit the DrupalCamp website. After 27 August, the site will also be updated with information regarding the info sessions and the speakers. And for those who are willing to give a helping hand: volunteers are always welcome to help with everything related to the Camp.
