DrupalCamp Sacramento 2013 has come and gone and was truly a memorable event as more than 50 attendees came together at the HackerLab to enhance their Drupal knowledge as well as enjoy some good food, fun, and networking.
Bryan Hirsch, recognized within the Drupal community for his advocacy of increased contribution to core development with the creation of drupalladder.org, travelled cross-country from New York to deliver our keynote speech.
Friday was a day of training with Build-A-Module Mentored Training, Pantheon, and Panels. On Saturday and Sunday, there were plenty of informative and entertaining sessions with an afterparty on Saturday evening. A learn sprint was held on Sunday to give attendees the opportunity to get hands-on experience with the drupal ladder. The sprint included a contest to give away an annual drupalize.me subscription, valued at $250, to one lucky winner, courtesy of Lullabot.
On behalf of all those who attended, our presenters, and the volunteers of the Sacramento Drupal Users Group, I would like to thank all of our sponsors at each level, who made it possible to invite Bryan, create registration and marketing materials, plus provide food and drinks, all free of charge to our attendees. Your generous donations also enabled us to commission the Drupal Association to be our fiscal sponsor, allowing us to enjoy some of the same benefits that a DrupalCon does.
We hope that the exposure each of these companies received will help them continue to thrive as they provide valuable services to their customers.
