DENVER, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Examiner.com, the insider source for local, will showcase its top technology talent at DrupalCamp Colorado 2010, kicking off in Denver on June 26.

Key leaders from across the company, including development, product, and content, will attend this year's event. Additionally, key technology leaders from Examiner.com will present on a number of Drupal-related topics. DrupalCamp Colorado is aimed at educating both advanced Drupal users and those completely new to the technology through various levels of presentations throughout the two day event.

With more than 42,000 contributors across its 240 US and Canadian editions, Examiner.com was recently ranked by comScore as one of the top 10 fastest-growing web sites in the US. The company also reports more than 35% growth in unique visitors so far in 2010.

Examiner.com's long-term strategic vision leverages social media for improving online content distribution. This commitment has led to Examiner.com's decision to migrate the entire site to open source Drupal. Once this migration is complete, Examiner.com will become the largest consumer web site living on the Drupal platform.

"As we quickly approach our migration from Cold Fusion to Drupal, the timing to share our knowledge and learn from others is perfect," said Chief Technology Officer, Mike Meyers. "The ability to sponsor the event in our headquarter city of Denver, makes this even more exciting."

Examiner.com presentations at DrupalCamp Colorado include:  Karoly Negyesi (ChX), Field API – create and work with a field and Kevin Bridges, Entities and fields ... transitioning to D7.
