We' d like to thank you all again for having supported the event, we hope you enjoyed it!
DrupalCamp Torino 2010 will host a "Localization Sprint", an open event which aims at introducing new potential contributors to the translation tool at http://localize.drupal.org and in the meantime to get as many translated strings as possible towards the completion of the italian translation of Drupal 7, which is due out "when it's ready", but translation wise is already 99% complete.
If you want to help advance the Italian translation of Drupal, you are very welcome to come and join us at the Localization Sprint area (L10n Sprint), maybe even just in between sessions.
More details on how to take part will be given on-site.
See you there!
The 2010 DrupalCamp is less than a week away. The path so far has been one of public activities (the first announcements, the publishing of the website and of proposal deadlines), but also of less known ones which we hope will make the DrupalCamp all the more interesting and enjoable for all attendees.
And now all these efforts are about to pay off during a very intense and full of content conference day on October 2nd, just like we wanted from the start. The last pieces of the jigsaw are falling into place: the schedule is set, there's a new space to allow for even more talks than anticipated, the details about the localization activities for Drupal 7 are out...
During this final push, we ask for those attendees with some time to spare to lend a precious hand to the organizers. If you do and are willing to help during the day of the conference please let us know as soon as possible!
In detail, on October 2nd we need help in these areas:
- Reception and registration of attendees in the morning
- Set up of the rooms and venue (moving tables and chairs around in the morning, putting them away in the evening, posting flyers and notices, etc.)
- Time keeping to avoid overshoots in the time schedule
- Videotaping of BoF sessions with PCs / Cameras
If you are willing to lend a hand (even for just half a day) please contact us as soon as possible for additional details.
After a long day of talks and presentations, you are very welcome to come and unwind with us for the pizza night that will end the Torino DrupalCamp. Everyone can come!
Depending on the number of attendees, we will chose the most appropriate venue, probably within walking distance of the conference.
To reserve your spot please use the signup form below (you need to be logged in to use it). The "Telephone" field is not essential, your username will get prepopulated: just use the "register" button and we'll count you in.
It will be possible to cancel at any time and the reservation is not binding, but please register only if you mean to come.

In the previous post, we provided several tips about proposing a session. This time we will take a look at how sessions are picked, and we also draw some circles on the calendar since DrupalCamp is now getting closer.
Each website registered user can vote for sessions. In this context, voting means expressing your interest for the session's subject. Voting a sessions doesn't prevent from voting other sessions. Each user can vote each session only once, but you can change your mind at any time and how many times you want, at least until voting operations are officially closed.
Each session page displays how many votes a session has received.
Votes from the website audience are not the only means for picking the right sessions by the event organizing staff; they are a very important part of the process (even more if lots of people vote) but after reading the voting results, other matters will be taken into account, such the presence of duplicate sessions, theme overlapping, consistency in the "tracks" identified in order to build meaningful thematic sequences, according to the available spaces. All in all, beside the public's votes, the organizing staff's final evaluation will give shape to the defined event program.
Here are the calendar steps in the process described before:
- September 12th - last day for proposing a session
- September 17th - last day for voting sessions
- September 19-20th - publication of the list of chosen sessions and first draft of the event program
- Do you still remember that DrupalCamp will be hel in Torino on October 2nd…?
After the first draft of the program is published, small changes to the program itself are likely to happen, in order to better fit each speaker's needs, especially regarding transportation from/to places far away from Torino.
One of the most engaging ways to participate in DrupalCamp is to propose a session, an occasion in which you can tell other people about your Drupal experiences. Topics may pertain to a wide range of sectors like development, design, strategies, administration, tools, ...
Here are some tips on submitting proposals for sessions.
- Although philosophy behind DrupalCamp don' t want to put a limit to any kind of proposal, it is preferable that the topic is focused on Drupal and its use. You can also propose sessions focused on other technologies, provided that there are practical relationships with Drupal.
- Session proposals shall be evaluated and compared by other participants, so our suggestion is to write clear titles and descriptions, so that it' s easy to understand what the session is about. Again, you should make explicit the connections using Drupal.
Participate into discussion! It is likely that other participants and users will ask you questions or make comments about your proposal: they will appreciate your willingness to answer.
Obviously, you are also invited to participate in discussions on other proposals!
Good luck for your suggestions, and thanks for making DrupalCamp Torino 2010 more and more interesting!
