MidCamp Madness

Join us at MidCamp March 30 – April 2, 2017!

Calling all designers, developers, strategists, and UX professionals: MidCamp week is here!

MidCamp is the largest annual DrupalCamp in the Midwest, and we are proud to have multiple Palantiri deeply involved in the planning and execution of this event. Not only is MidCamp a place to see great sessions on current topics, but it creates an opportunity to connect with the local community in person (not that we don’t also enjoy wearing those fun hats in a Google Hangout).

In addition to supporting MidCamp on an organizational level, this year Palantir is sponsoring Friday night’s Game Night. There will be an assortment of games to play and delicious food provided by the Donerman food truck (free for all Game Night ticket holders). Come late, leave early — we are looking forward to connecting with everyone!
