There are no training refunds after September 23. If you are not able to attend your training, do let us know so we can open up your spot to folks on the waiting list.

BADCamp is only a couple of days away!!

With the shift in venues, we thought we'd put together a list of local places that serve up good grub. Knowing that the attendees of BADCamp are diverse, so are the restaurants on our list. We have indicated if we have confirmed that they serve vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

Angeline's Louisiana Kitchen

Angeline's brings the flavor and atmosphere of a New Orleans neighborhood restaurant ​to downtown Berkeley, with great music, libations and the classic dishes invented in the Big Easy's greatest kitchens.

(Vegetarian, Vegan)


Founded in 1994 by Jorge Saldana, Cancun opened its doors downtown providing a central location for easy, dine-in or takeout, healthy Mexican food in Berkeley. Beloved from the beginning, Cancun, with its local farm to table ingredients, fresh salsa bar, big open space and high ceilings, continues to offer homemade traditional Mexican dishes, made to order with love.


Discover the Eureka! all-American culture through one-of-a-kind experiences, weekly events such as Steal The Glass, daily “Hoppy” Hour, and an inventive rotating beer and craft beverage program, small-batch whiskeys, and a mouthwatering menu featuring gourmet burgers.



Housed in an old livery stable from the 1890's, with interior inspired by the oldest bar in Berlin, Jupiter exudes charm & rare atmosphere. Steps off BART, in the heart of Downtown Berkeley, this brewhouse features two stories of seating, a heated beer garden, live music, delicious food & incredible local beer.

The Butcher's Son

Yes, everything is vegan at The Butcher's Son.

(Vegetarian, Vegan)


Every steaming bowl is an “arigato” – a thank you, which Ippudo serves to their customers together with a smile.

The Veggie Grill

At Veggie Grill, vegetables are the rockstars! They see every season as an opportunity to create bold and delicious ways to bring people together.

(Vegetarian, Vegan)

top dog

top dog grew out of a boy's love of sausage, a staple in his German immigrants' New York home over the WWII years. Steaks? Tubesteaks! His paper route to a well-mixed neighborhood assured that Italian, Polish, even Hungarian sausages were soon no strangers to that developing appetite and palate. Nor had he far to go to a cart or stand offering kosher style "Franks", usually steeped but better off the griddle.


Tuk Tuk Thai

Tuk Tuk Thai is a aid-back cafe serving popular Thai dishes like curries & noodle soups & offering delivery too.

(Vegetarian, Vegan)

Maison Bleue

Maison Bleue a little taste of France.



Revival Bar + Kitchen is a ustainably Sourced California Brasserie and Cocktail Lounge.

(Vegetarian, Vegan)

The Flying Falafel

The Flying Falafel serves Mediterranean goodies with an aerial twist. Falafel cooked to order, hummus, and veggies galore. Serving catering and party platters.



Custom California Cuisine made from local and sustainable ingredients.  Everything that comes from The Venus kitchen is handmade. No cans. No freezers.

Everybody's favorite Drupal Camp is fast approaching!

This year (like every year) we promise to deliver the most forward-thinking Drupal knowledge out there. But we need a little help from our friends.

Be a part of humans sharing knowledge by giving a presentation at the 13th annual BADCamp. Remember, and this is important, the first step to presenting is submitting a session proposal!

Our Call For Papers is open and we are the edge of our seats waiting to know what everyone has to offer. Are you a project manager with a knack for cat herding? Do you have mastery of JavaScript and can make your website perform magic? Do you have a community story you want to share? Are your DevOps chops dialed in? Do you know the ins and outs of web accessibility?

If you can answer yes to any of the questions, share what you know with the San Francisco Bay Area Drupal folks!!  Everybody has a unique Drupal story to tell, and we want to hear yours.

Submit Session

Sessions submissions close Thursday, August 1st at midnight PST so be timely.

We welcome those from all levels of expertise, background, gender, ethnicity, sexual identity, religion, age, and ability. Our community is diverse and we know that Drupal can benefit when everyone is included.

Submission Requirements:

Before submitting a session proposal, we recommend that you:

 - Acquaint yourself with BADCamps’s Code of Conduct. All speakers will be required to adhere to this code.

 - Create a Drupal.org account - BADCamp does give Drupal Community attributions for speakers.

Speaker Resources:

We want to support you as a speaker along your journey. 

 - Pre-submission mentoring - We know submitting a conference proposal can be intimidating, especially for newer speakers.

 - We want to support you, and encourage you to use the HelpMeAbstract to obtain feedback from veteran open source speakers

 - The #session-help Slack channel is dedicated to submission support and feedback. 

 - Speaker Diversity Workshop 

 Looking for more inspiration? Check out the videos from last year’s camp.

A BIG magical BADcamp thank you to our sponsors who have committed early. Without them, this magical event wouldn’t be possible. We are also looking for MORE sponsors to help keep BADCamp free and awesome. Interested in sponsoring BADCamp? Contact [email protected].
