We are getting closer and closer the our long-waited event - Moldcamp. What is Moldcamp? Well, it our very first DrupalCamp held in Moldova. We've worked your butts off to make it as nice as we can. Let's see some stats, details, sessions, etc.
It's been a while since I've organised the 1st Drupal event in Moldova (to be precise 7 of January 2011 - Drupal 7 Release Party).
Lots of Drupal events took place since then. And now, we're aiming even higher: first Drupal Camp in Moldova...
We (Drupal Moldova Association) have put things together last week, to creating a really awesome one-page static website for Drupal Global Training Day here in Moldova.
And here's how we did it.
For the past two months or so, we were working hard to create a non-profit organization that will be responsible for lots of Drupal-related local things, such as: events, trainings, workshops, showcases, partnerships, etc.
My first attempt of a Drupal Workshop with some high-school students in a local project named "UpGreat: IT & Business". Newcomers are important for Drupal, especially for our local community and its growth. Both non-technical and technical explanations and stories mixed with some activities resulted in an interesting experience.
Binding between developers and themers, or how backend developers have to prepare things to be themed by frondend developers.
Finally, I had a trip I really needed, a trip to the west: Romania. I didn't visit our neighboring country for years, and seeing that a DrupalCamp will be held in Arad really brought a smile on my face.
