NYC Camp Training


Learn from Great Drupal Trainers

Once again, NYC Camp will feature a series of free trainings on a variety of Drupal topics for a range of skill levels.

Our trainings offer attendees a chance to learn with their peers in a hands-on setting with real-world examples.

We limit the number of attendees at each training appropriate for attendees to have a great experience. Each training will clearly identify the target audience, skill level, prerequisites and software requirements. Be respectful to your peers and our trainers by only registering only for trainings that you know you can attend, are appropriate for your skill level and in which you are prepared to engage. Please come to the training prepared with all of the required software installed and properly configured.

Volunteers will be on hand throughout the conference to help get you going and to troubleshoot issues. Please note that trainers have the right to ask you to leave the session if you are not properly prepared.
