From 13th to 15th of March 2013 the third Drupal Summit Latino 2013 has taken place in Loja, Ecuador, after the first in Lima, Peru and the second in Guadalajara, Mexico. Once again the Drupal community from all Latin America gathered at one locality to share knowledge, rock Drupal at a new place, getting to know each other (better), plan future activities and enjoy good company. The event was held at the local university Universidad Tecnica Particular de Loja, which provided a good service, meeting rooms for BoFs and speakers as well talkrooms for a total of five tracks on the same time.
The first DrupalCamp in Bolivia took place from 21st to 23rd of February in the Universidad Católica Boliviana "San Pablo" in Cochabamba. A city, that it's population also call kindly "Llajta" (Quechua meaning for "perfect place to live"). A big success: Three days of Drupal brought to this beautiful country, organized by the local community with support by international specialists. Did I say three days? Actually this camp were four days: One day before the official start Juan Pablo from Spain held a great code sprint for the Devel module. A really valuable initiative to help people getting involved more into contributing, learning, participating and forming actively this great open source project Drupal.
The Latin American Drupal Community keeps on working with a lot of motivation! A lot of people from the whole continent are forming a team to organize together the **DrupalPicchu** in the beginning of 2014! Picchu means Summit in quechua (native indigenous language), so DrupalPicchu means DrupalSummit. This gives an original name to such an important historic event for the Drupal Latin Community.
Being part of the main organization team I'm really glad to write about the first Drupal event oriented to the whole Latin American audience happened in Peru, Lima from 27th to 29th of January 2011. Over 250 persons from 16 Latin American countries and Belgium, Spain and the United States of America came together to share knowledge and experience about Drupal. During these three days, I almost would call them a historical momement, we had the oppurtunity to get to know each other and seeing the faces of people from the whole continent and Europe and we were able to set the base for future colaborations and the formation of a global Spanish speaking Drupal community.
