How DrupalCon Coders are Helping Oklahoma City Recover

2 July 2013

 

Los Angeles: More than 70 developers are being present at DrupalCon in Portland in last week of May took time out to make a key contribution to the recovery effort in Oklahoma City.

24 people were killed and more than 1,000 homes were destroyed or damaged when a massive tornado swept through Moore and other Oklahoma City suburbs.

The 70-plus DrupalCon attendees teamed with FEMA agents on all-night hack-a-thon to build website to help in the recovery. The result is help4ok.org, where volunteers wishing to aid in the recovery can manage rides to prevent area roads from becoming congested. The site also helps connect volunteers with homeowners who are ready to house out-of-towners.

The site is live but will be revised as the DrupalCon team gets extra input from FEMA and the General Services Administration.

DrupalCon is a biannual event that unites members of the 630,000-plus member Drupal community, which has over the years built an open source content management system. Drupal was begun by Dries Buytaert as a message board in 1999.
