jam's Drupal Camp! Open Source (Virtual) Show and Tell

jam and the Drupal

What's this all about? – With something like 100+ Drupal Camps and sprints, two DrupalCons, and countless meetups each year (not to mention countless other exciting events in the tech and business worlds), there are a lot of great show and tell sessions out there ... and that we’ll never get to see.

I would like to highlight some great Drupal sessions; make them findable; “surface” them and make them accessible to a broader audience. To get started, I have collected an initial run of interesting (to me) sessions I have seen myself or heard about from recent Drupal and PHP events. To make a jam’s Drupal Camp session, the presenter(s) and I have gone on a live Google Hangout on Air, had a chat about who they are and what they do, and then gone through the presentation decks and demos. I will now start posting these on Acquia.com as jam’s Drupal Camp - hurray!
