Adrian Rossouw: Announcing DrupalCamp Johannesburg - Over the last few years that I have been involved in the Drupal community, I have noticed only a handful of South African developers, and I've always wondered if there are more of us out there.
I have also been introducing many many people to Drupal, but unfortunately every time people try to approach me for projects, I have to turn them down, as I am just too busy building Bryght.
To combat this, I am going to be holding a training session on how to become a Drupal developer, for local web developers at the end of June. I hope to help bootstrap the local Drupal community so that we can have better representation from my fellow South Africans.
Considering that there are 11 pages of people who have specified that they live in South Africa on drupal.org, I will also be heading up a DrupalZA group on DrupalGroups, just as soon as I can get an administrator to create it for me.
If you are interested in being kept up to date about this, and being put on the mailing list for South African Drupal users, please contact me via my drupal.org contact form
EDIT : I have created the DrupalZA user group. You can join on groups.drupal.org. You can just log in with your drupal.org auth, so you don't even have to create an account.
I think South African Community has a better chance now we have a central place to work from.
