DrupalCamp Brighton 2015
Project Case Study
One thing that drew me towards Drupal was the great community. One evening I was sat there and thought I would like to give back to the communit. The way I decided to do that was by organise an event of some sort, and that's how DrupalCamp Brighton 2015 started!
DrupalCamp had happened in Brighton before, although not for a good few years. I knew this was going to be a massive task, but was willing to take on the challenge. It did consume a lot of my time, inside and outside of work. Although I certainly didn't do it alone, there was an amazing group of us that worked together to make it a great success. I spoke to my boss at the time about doing it, Alick (MD at miggle), he was very supportive, along with the great local Brighton Drupal community. I started by creating the committee - seeing who wanted to help and work on what, deligate the work and get it all started.

There were a few hiccups throughout the weekend, but we overcame everything, it was a massive success. I thoroughly enjoyed organising this, getting everyone together and helping people learn about Drupal. I would love to organise more events in the future.
