Volunteer at DrupalCamp

We need lots of great folks, including you, to run a fantastic camp. Take a look at our volunteer opportunities listed below.

Why should you volunteer?

  • Volunteers are the real heroes: when they make the camp run smoothly, the guests will come away hyped on Drupal and the Drupal Community.
  • You'll earn the gratitude and adoration of the hundreds of Drupalers that come, who will thank you for your work and dedication.
  • You'll make new and influential friends in the Drupal community.
  • You can contribute something valuable back to the Drupal community - and you don't need to be a Drupal guru or a coding rockstar.  Just bring your enthusiasm.
  • Volunteers are invited to the camp appreciation dinner on Saturday night, where you can mingle with the camp speakers and sponsors.

Classroom Assistant -- Development Best Practices
Drupal volunteers needed to assist the instructors of a workshop covering Drupal development best practices. Applicants should have experience with PHP, be willing to help out students who raise their hand for help and consider themselves to be competent with at least three of the following topics: module development, theme development, version control using git, Drush, basic server configuration, basic performance optimization, Drupal coding best practices, and the features module. Applicants will not be leading the workshop and should not worry about speaking in front of large groups.

Date/Time: Thursday, May, 17, 2012 -- 7:45 AM - 4:00 PM (or when class ends)


Classroom Assistant -- Build Your First Drupal 7 Web Site
Mentors needed for an fun and interactive workshop.  No training experience or special preparation necessary.  You should have a decent grasp of Drupal site building.  Drupal 7 familiarity is a plus but not required.  Class participants will be Drupal beginners.  They will be working individually and watching Drupal 7 site building tutorials in the "Build your first Drupal 7 site" course on Buildamodule.com.  Mentors will monitor the room and work with participants one-on-one when they have questions about the material or need help with their setup.  Check out http://buildamodule.com/train for info about the mentored training model.  Check out http://buildamodule.com/build-your-first-drupal-7-web-site-video-tutorials to see the index of the course we'll be mentoring.  Questions?  Email us at team@advantagelabs.com
