Drupal is a popular free open-source modular framework and content management system (CMS). It is used to build everything from personal blogs to enterprise applications. Millions of businesses, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations use Drupal because it is free and flexible. It is constantly being improved by the hundreds of thousands of dedicated developers that are part of the Drupal Community.

Drupal Camp Asheville is a growing camp in a beautiful tourist destination. The size of our camp is perfect for being able to access session speakers and even do your first session presentation. We are a welcoming event for people at all levels of Drupal knowledge and experience. Come learn and share in an awesome laid-back environment.

What is the origin of your logo?

Black bears getting into neighborhood trash.

Asheville participates in the North Carolina Urban/Suburban Black Bear Study, a collaborative project between North Carolina State University (NCSU) and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

We decided to embrace our urban bear population as a unique characteristic of our city and a great open and inviting symbol of our local Drupal community. The logo was designed by a member of the Asheville Drupal User Group, April Sides.
