Drupal Camp 2017 Retrospective

Stanford Drupal Camp is a two-day annual event that connects people in the South Bay who work with websites. The Camp started in 2009 to discuss the many facets of web design and development, as well as learn about Drupal, an open source content management system. The camp places an emphasis on introductory sessions for beginners, as well as use cases of Drupal in higher education. Beginners sessions take place on Fridays, while Saturday's sessions are designed for more experienced Drupal users.
