I don't know how the time went so fast either, but it's true--only 2 weeks until Drupal Camp Vancouver is underway! Somehow, along with DaveO and Dale, I ended up being one of the wham-bam organizers for this, and boy has it crept up quickly...we've got our locations rented (SFU Wosk Centre and Workspace). We've got a good number of volunteers helping out (but we can always use more!!!), and a bunch of lovely sponsors making this possible for the low, low price to attendees of $20 (that includes a t-shirt and Saturday lunch)! Which reminds me--registration is filling up fast, so if you are planning on coming, don't wait, REGISTER NOW!!!
There will be a good range of sessions for themers, developers, and users of different skill levels and interests, and it's only $20, so don't hesitate, just come check it out! I went to Drupal Camp Seattle two summers ago, as a total newbie, hardly knowing any HTML or CSS, and only being a beginner Drupal user/configurer, and I can pinpoint that as the event that sucked me into doing web and Drupal work. It was a great experience, and we're hoping that DCV will be just as great for everyone who attends, actually to be frank, we're hoping it's an even better experience!
Aside from registering, the other thing we need is more speaker submissions! The deadline for speaker submissions is MAY 1st, that's this Thursday! If you're not totally sure what to pitch, feel free to submit a few different ideas, and if you're super busy but committed to presenting, just submit something that we can follow up with, ie. "Hey, it's me, I'm super busy and didn't get a chance to properly flesh this pitch out, but I want to do an awesome session on install profiles, and I promise it will be SUPER AWESOME." is better than nothing! There is also a list of possible topics to skim through on the speaker submissions page, so have a look, pick a topic on which you feel you have a bit of knowledge to share, and pitch us your session!
Can't wait geek out on Drupal with everyone who makes it!
