Kansas City Drupal Flyover Camp 2020

to

Welcome! We are a Drupal camp organized in the heart of the midwest, Kansas City.


Flyover Camp is an event for technologists, designers, creatives, business leaders, and anyone who uses Drupal or supports Drupal in any capacity. We welcome all skill levels, from the beginner learning how to configure a Drupal site, to veteran thought leaders and community contributors.


Our COVID-19 Response - Because of the ongoing global pandemic we are changing Flyover Camp to a free two day virtual event, September 17 - 18. We feel this is the safest way for everyone to continue sharing knowledge and collaborating with our Drupal community. 


What to Expect


  • Keynote - by our featured speaker Heather Physioc on Interdisciplinarity: Lessons From Building a Cross-Functional Powerhouse.
  • Sessions - check out our schedule below (Hopin will recognize your local timezone and adjust accordingly, in KC the event begins at 8:30 AM CST and ends at 5:30 PM CST for reference) 
  • BoF (Birds of a Feather) breakouts - interactive time to bounce ideas off of your like-minded Drupalists.
  • Networking - don't you miss those hallway conversations? We'll be using a nifty feature to randomly match you to a fellow attendee to spark up a conversation.
  • Sponsor meet-and-greet - you can still virtually "walk up" to our sponsor booths and learn more about what they do.
  • Contribution time - but why wait until camp? Learn how you can contribute to the Drupal community today.
  • Social gatherings - unwinding with trivia, Jackbox games and chances to win prizes from our InKind Sponsors JetBrains and Drupalize.Me


Tickets are free! Please let us know you're coming. Register on the top right.
