DrupalCamp Galway '09

Just finished a second day at DrupalCamp Galway 09... what an amazing event! Two days of intensive learning, work and a lot of fun! Getting the chance to work with a team of coders, template designers, graphic artists and the Galway based charity, Zikomo, was truly amazing. In the space of one single day, an incredible Drupal site for Zikomo has been developed from scratch which they will now use to communicate about their ongoing projects in Malawi, and that fieldworkers can update with developments and events as they arise.

Of course, I should mention our rival group Rural Science Association who also had a hardworking team, racing the clock to get a similar set of requirements met- proving what is possible when a very brainy group of web developers get together for fun!

Also in attendance was Addison Berry from Lullabot who produce great "how to" videos and documentation on using Drupal, which is invaluable to newbies to this open source CMS.

Thanks to Stella Power, Alan Burke, Heather James, and Stephane Corlosquet for organising a fantastic event- and to the sixty people who showed up to make it happen!
