  • Official event from the Ottawa Drupal Association

The first DrupalCamp Ottawa, which took place in 2013 was a sellout event that surprised organizers and highlighted the level of Drupal interest in the National Capital Region. Since the event is run by volunteers with the financial support of companies that offer Drupal-related services, the camp was able to offer a high quality event for a very modest fee.

In 2015 and 2016, the Ottawa Drupal Association has been able to make the event free for attendees.
