Where is this mythical Fox Valley?

The Fox River runs from southeastern Wisconsin to the Illinois River and along this route a thriving community was established concurrently with the city of Chicago.

At a distance of 40 miles from the city we found a community of Drupal enthusiasts who wanted a closer commute and more local user group meeting than the Chicago based Drupal user group. Thus we established Fox Valley Drupal as a Meetup group to stay close to home while still building the greater Drupal community.

We have attended and supported user groups and camps within the city and want to extend the reach of the Drupal community further out of the metropolitan area. DrupalCamp events have long been a bastion of local organization and we want to bring the same spirit to our smaller event and draw people out of the city for a change.

Waubonsee Community College

Established in 1966, Waubonsee Community College has provided students with “the objective of meeting the lifelong learning needs of the community”. In 2012 a new facility in downtown Aurora, IL opened to provide a modern learning environment with expanded access to education for the community.

The Aurora Campus’ new Multipurpose Room is a perfect fit for DrupalCamp Fox Valley’s projected attendance and audio-visual needs. New classrooms with AV support allow us to support breakout sessions, code sprints, and BOF sessions.
