The Drupal community proved, once again, it has heart!

Drupal Camp Vancouver brought together sponsorship from Building Opportunities with Business, stewardship from the Fearless Project (Fearless City), and knowledge/energy/expertise from Drupal Camp Vancouver attendees in an evening that was part code sprint, part barn raising. And there were even door prizes provided by VONIC and FreeTheNet.ca.
Code Sprint Theme TeamUnder the leadership of Scott Nelson, Drupal Campers geeked for good at Delicados on Friday evening after Drupal Camp presentations. Scott reported the next day that this work took the site from alpha to beta as well as providing some great ideas around ongoing project management and site operation. We can’t wait to see the changes moved from dev to production.
Here’s an account of the evening from Lorraine Murphy, aka raincoaster, a local blogger and Fearless Project blogging coach:
So, and it may be superfluous to announce, I’m from the Downtown EastSide. And the Downtown EastSide, as you may or may not know, is one of the most artistic, yet most fatal, regions of the country and even, if you are large-minded, the world. And the Code Sprint, which event this is, is designed to use the brainpower of people who are not in the Fearless City demographic, to help people in the Fearless City Demographic.
After a short intro by Scott, the techie leader, and Stephen, the design side leader, and Irwin, the project leader, we split into rough and amorphous groups along the useability/code geek lines, although it turns out there’s a great deal of overlap of which it seems that I alone am aware and thus I keep it to myself lest it complicate things.
