Florida DrupalCamp 2014 - Six Years In, Stronger Than Ever

Average: 5 (1 vote)

More than 300 people from all over the country converged on the sixth annual Florida DrupalCamp the weekend of March 8-9. We made some changes to several aspects of the camp based on feedback from previous years, most of which attendees embraced.

Perhaps our most significant deviation from previous camps (and from most DrupalCamps) was that we did away with the keynote speaker. We had a couple of reasons for doing this. First, our venue's auditorium wasn't large enough to hold all of our attendees (or to even come close). Second, we found that it is difficult to find a single keynote speaker that a large majority of the attendees will be interested in. Our solution was really well-received: double-length sessions with "featured speakers" well-known in the community.

As always, we also cover some Drupal-y news, share our picks of the week, and subject our guest to five questions!

X Marks the Spot sample map
Mapping address data in Drupal can be confusing, if only because of the great number of contributed modules available that involve online maps. Picking the right module (or combination of modules) is challenging - especially for site builders who are new to mapping in Drupal. In this tutorial, we'll utilize the popular and well-supported Geofield module as one of the key ingredients in the common task of entering address data and having it displayed on an interactive map.

This tutorial contains step-by-step instructions for accomplishing this task, as well as a screencast demonstrating all of the steps.

A few mentions of Florida DrupalCamp, the battle for the body field, and Drupal 8 versioning also find their way into the podcast, along with our picks of the week!

DrupalEasy Podcast 123: It’s Got Berdir

Alex Pott (alexpott), Cathy Theys (YesCT), and Jozef Toth (mogdesign) join Ted Bowman and Mike Anello to solve all of the Drupal’s community funding problems - or at least to dream about a solution. Alex is one of the Drupal 8 core committers and has successfully used Gittip and other means to be able to raise enough money to work on Drupal 8 full-time. Cathy has successfully found multiple sponsors to support her work in the community (mainly on Drupal 8) and Jozef is co-founder of Drupalfund, a web site where Drupal developers can post projects and request sponsors (think Kickstarter for Drupal). As if that wasn’t enough, we also have picks of the week (including a pick-of-the-week cage match between Ted and Mike) and our 5 (more like 11) questions.
