The seventh annual DrupalCamp Montreal took place at McGill University on September 12nd and 13th. The camp started on Friday evening, September 12, with a pre-conference keynote on ‘gender and diversity issues in the tech industry’, followed by a presentation given by the organizers of ‘Montreal Girl Geeks’.
The sessions started the next day. There were many interesting session topics varying from Drupal 8 to SaaS, from EntityMetadataWrappers to FormAPI. Presentations were classified for the audience who had beginner, intermediate or advanced level of knowledge about the topic. Beginner-wise presentations were scheduled early on the day for the sake of the sessions that would follow the rest of the day. There were 4 presentations in one time-slot, and each presentation was 45 minutes long, including Q&A. Participants were given 15 minutes each in between the presentations to be able to travel from one venue to another. There were around 20-30 people in the sessions which we attended. After the lunch, we all gathered at one of the auditoriums for a group photo.

We had a great turnout (not to mention Bradley and Francis, who were there to support us) for our presentation which was held at 3:30PM in a pretty techy classroom. Attendees seemed very interested when they realized the ease and possibility of integrating Drupal with other frameworks.
