DrupalCamp Seattle will take place on June 27th and June 28th at the Youngstown Arts Center.
Drupal is a Content Management System (CMS) which provides some interesting features that can make setting up a group managed website particularly easy. The particular feature that keeps pulling me back to Drupal is the ablity to easily define “Roles” and have different rights and access to the website based on those Roles.
The key to Drupal is to recognize two specific things. First that much of the power of drupal lives in the different modules that you can load as a way to add functionality. The second is that drupal has been stretching to do new and innovative things. So it can be that there are features that come at the expense of backward functionality. Portland and Vancouver have already had their DrupalCamps, where many people gathered to discuss the details and to explore how things work. Seattle will have its chance at the end of the month.
