What is DrupalCamp St. Louis?

Saturday, September 10th (Keynote and Sessions) and Sunday, September 11th (Sprints), 2016.

DrupalCamp St. Louis 2016 is the third annual DrupalCamp held by the organizers behind the St. Louis Drupal Users Group, which has been meeting monthly in and around St. Louis, MO since 2007. This year's camp will be held at the University of Missouri St. Louis campus.

What's Drupal?

Drupal is a content management system (CMS) and web application framework: a tool for building robust websites and web applications and managing content. Drupal now runs over 1% of sites on the web, from local community groups to international corporations, universities, newspapers and government agencies. It's an open-source, modular framework written primarily in PHP and maintained and developed by a community of 1,000,000+ users.
