Last Friday started for me with friendly smiles of people who care about user-friendly solutions, which make our lifes better. I was happy to be among 60 attendees of the first UX Brunch Zürich 2015, organized by Valérie Vuillerat, Rahel Vils and Marc Steffen. Event took place in Impact Hub, which is known as a space with a good vibe. Being there is already enough to love the world around you even on an early Friday morning. But greeting and meeting people, who understand your challenges and the big meaning of those small victories on the way to great designs, is even better.

For the first time, DrupalCon happened in Latin America! Dagmar, Emma and me spent a week in Bogotá to speak about Drupal and to connect with the local communities.
It is awesome to be here! Everything was well prepared and we were very warmly welcomed.
Yesterday Gregory, Victor and myself had the pleasure to attend Cape Town's first Drupal meetup in 2015. What a bunch of cool people! First we had Johan Dubois from the Western Cape Government sharing his insights on how to win government tenders, followed by our own Victor Künzig bringing some Swiss Case studies to the Cape. We left the event with a bunch of new colleagues and lots of inspiration. Thanks to Jason from Robboto for organizing the event.
We just completed our third Drupal 8 project: SGG - Schweizer Gemeinnützige Gesellschaft. After relaunching our own website and helping out with Drupal.com (our first two Drupal 8 sites), we are excited to launch our first client website 100% on the upcoming major release of our favorite open source CMS.
After we had built the community site Intergeneration and the voting platform CHymne using Drupal 7, we now chose Drupal 8 for the relaunch of the corporate website of SGG. The compact feature of the site allowed us to apply the strengths of Drupal 8 as per today and so we created the association's new website relying entirely on Drupal 8 core functionality.
Building the new SGG website was a team effort; continue reading for the findings of each of us while we were creating the new site on the latest beta release of Drupal 8.

Drupal 8 brings a lot of new features and my favorite is configuration management. I’ll try to do a quick overview of it.
Please keep in mind that this overview has been written at Drupal 8 beta 3 release time. Things could change.
