CapitalCamp has returned to DC for the third year in a row to bring together “designers, developers, open gov advocates, IT managers and anyone that wants to find out more about Drupal”. The festivities kicked off on Monday with specialized training sessions throughout the week, but the main event is being held today and tomorrow at GWU’s Marvin Center.

If you are new to the Drupal community, you may find yourself at a loss when trying to decide which of the dozens of sessions to go to. Don’t sweat it! We have asked our generous, veteran Drupalers to share their top picks for Drupal newbies who want to get the best out of their CapitalCamp experience. So kick start your Drupal dreams with the sessions listed below and be sure to keep a lookout for the NJI team at tomorrow’s event.

1. Train-wrecks, Ugly-Baby Meetings & Other Client Calamities
Time: Saturday, 2PM
Presenter: Susan Rust, Top Shelf Modules

This interactive session will focus on how to pick the right client and plan your projects with both the client’s needs (and your development team’s sanity) in mind.

2. 10 Steps Not to Forget After Installing Drupal
Saturday, 2PM
Presenter: Daniel Schiavone, Snake Hill

Go to this session and avoid the embarrassment of being “That Guy” who forgets to configure the proper node settings after installing your new site.

3. Problem Solving for Drupal Sites
Time: Saturday, 1PM
Jody Hamilton, Zivtech

As much as we love Drupal here at NJI Media, we know how frustrating it can be when you encounter a major system, or PHP or Javascript, problem. Check this session out and discover that the key to problem-solving serenity is knowing the right questions to ask. Unfortunately, the answers only come from continued practice (and lots of coffee refills).

4. Drupal’s Destiny
Time: Saturday, 11AM
Presenter: Joshua Koenig, GetPantheon

Obviously you choose Drupal for a reason, and this session will remind you of all the unique benefits Drupal has to offer as well as share advice on how to get involved with others in the community to help propel Drupal’s future.
