Madison, Wisconsin (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
The Midwest Drupal Developer Summit and DrupalCamp will bring together developers and technical business leaders interested in building the next version of the Drupal content management platform. Chicago-based Drupal developer Duo Consulting is sponsoring the Summit and Camp in Madison, Wisconsin July 26–28, 2012.
This year’s event was lengthened and expanded to accommodate the demand to participate in guiding the next version of the Drupal platform – the focus of the Summit. Anticipated topics at the Camp which follows, ranging from online communities to user interface-driven design, are hot trends online. Duo Consulting CEO Michael Silverman sees the evolution as a big opportunity in open source software development.
“The audience for Drupal has begun to resonate beyond developers,” Silverman explained. “What we’re seeing is a growing interest from marketing professionals, decision-makers and other web stakeholders. It’s driving a revolution in thinking that will continue to position Drupal as the core player in the open source enterprise CMS market.”
The one-day Camp that follows the two-day Summit is a free, community-organized event where Drupal experts share their knowledge and experience through both scheduled sessions and “unconference” content. The Summit and Camp provide business leaders responsible for guiding Internet strategy an efficient path to understand more about Drupal as a software platform and the community that supports it. The Summit features leaders in the Drupal community, including Drupal founder and project lead Dries Buytaert and core maintainer Angela Byron.
