When I was a kid my parents used to send me to summer camps where I was always having great time discovering all kinds of news things and making a lot of new friends. Last weekend felt exactly like a summer camp to me; from July 16 to 19, the NYC Camp was held at the United Nations. Although I am currently working at the UN, this event was free and open to everybody, particularly to all “Open Source Enthusiasts.”
With a myriad of trainings, summits, conferences and people from all over the world, this felt like a giant summer camp of, not only geeks, but all kind of people related to tech and non-profit. Just like when I was a kid, I had a great time, discovered a lot of new things and made a lot of new friends.
With so many activities proposed, it was hard to make a choice, but what interested me the most were the workshops related to Drupal; a CMS that I never have used before but that I always wanted to know more about. With Drupal 8 soon to be released, this might be a good opportunity to try it on a future project.
Back to real life at the end of the camp on Sunday night, I felt like coming back from a long journey. Tired, but refreshed and already thinking about the next one…
