DrupalCamp 2014 is taking place 28 February – 2 March at the City University London, where computer science students will gather to learn about Drupal open software.
Drupal is an open-source content management system (CMS) used by user communities and for online content. Over a million websites are run by Drupal including the Cabinet Office, the World Economic Forum, the Grammy Awards, Oxford University and The Economist.
Over 600 students, Drupal open source software enthusiasts, established businesses and start-ups will attend from all over Europe.
The open source event aims to create a wider awareness of the Drupal community.
Leon Tong, Director of BrightLemon and one of the organisers of DrupalCamp London 2014 said: “DrupalCamp London 2014 is partnering with the Drupal Association on Drupal Global Training Days.
“City students have been invited to attend sessions and the training they receive will bolster central and local government initiatives around getting young people into the technology sector.”
Alex Elkins, manager of City’s Professional Liaison Unit (PLU), said: “City is very excited to be hosting DrupalCamp London 2014. This is a fantastic event drawing people from across the globe to our campus. The Drupal community has invested tremendous confidence in our facilities, students, academics and our proximity to Tech City and the digital industries.
“This is a valuable opportunity for our students to network with industry professionals for future employment and to gain exposure to leading edge technology and its applications.”
