Drupal Europe will be taking place soon – different organization, different structure, same great community. There are a few things you need to know about this year’s edition of Europe’s largest Drupal conference, so let me tell you about them. But before I start, your case studies, as always, are more than welcome!
This year’s Drupal Dev Days took place in sunny (well, for the most part) Lisbon, Portugal. Over 400 people attended this year’s Dev Days, and I was one of them. I am fairly new to Drupal, and this was my first conference dedicated to Drupal. This was a week-long event, something that was unusual to me as I am used to attending one or two-day events.
We will host the next Durpal Meetup at our Amazee Labs offices in Zurich on 11 July.
Join us for Drupal Dev Days in Lisbon!
At Amazee, there are a number of people that work remotely and even though we do our best to ensure that remote employees feel connected, there isn’t anything better than meeting face-to-face. We believe it is essential in order to grow as a team and to reinforce the bonds between colleagues in the company.
It has already been two weeks since all the Amazee front-enders gathered to discuss the latest front-end related topics.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, we started to challenge ourselves with the Frontend Web Development quiz at our last meeting. Due to time constraints, we ended in the middle of the second section which related to HTML tags, with a great score of 26/33.
I’ve been running events since college, for work and for fun, and for groups of 3 to 3,000. You’d think there’d be a difference, but the amount of energy it takes to run an event, surprisingly, is the same. It’s crazy how well these things scale.
Join us on Wednesday, at Gridonic, for the upcoming Zurich Drupal user group meetup.
Frontend United is a non-profit, developer-first, community-focused conference. It is held every year in a different European city and this time it was Utrecht in the Netherlands’ turn. I was lucky enough to attend it along with some 400 people and several dozen more that joined remotely from India, Rwanda, Thailand, and Suriname.
At Amazee Labs, we think that teamwork, knowledge sharing and highly skilled and motivated people are some of the key factors to our success.
Having developers that are based on 4 different continents and finding ways to connect all of them isn't always an easy task. That's why we have several meetings on a weekly and bi-weekly basis, where we discuss what everyone was working on in the previous week, what challenges they are facing and what new tech and non-tech related news they heard. Some of them are also topic-specific.
