TexasCamp is called a “camp” to emphasize the unconference style of the event.

Nope, everything is handled online. Show up with an ID, printed Eventbrite ticket, or ticket via the Eventbrite app.
We’ll send you a few emails leading up to the conference, but that’s it. When you sign in at TexasCamp, all you need to do is provide your registration information.
We currently only accept credit cards and payments through Eventbrite for ticket sales. If you're a sponsor, email our marketing team for more options!
Absolutely! We have a special Beginner track for those who are just familiarizing themselves with Drupal.
The deadline for submitting a session will be March 15, 2016. However, we would highly encourage you to submit your session as soon as possible to allow more time for commenting, and general interaction. The organizers will then finalize the schedule, contact the speakers selected to present, and post the final schedule on the website.
All audio / visual equipment will be provided – just bring your slide deck and laptop.
Contact us and we can help you transfer your ticket. Unfortunately, we don't offer refunds for tickets.
We recommend bringing a laptop and lots of business cards. Dress comfortably. We’ll provide a light breakfast, boxed lunch and afternoon snack!
Yes, there is plenty of parking available on the street and in lots and garages! Check out the Travel page for a list of suggested lots and garages.
We're glad you asked – we can use volunteer assistance to help with setting up sessions, picture taking, registration, etc. the day of the event. Please contact us and we will find something for you to do.
