Every now and then we take some time to do something as a team. Usually we make something that is not work related as we want to free our minds every once in a while so we can create beautiful websites with freshest of minds.
What an amazing way to start a day! Yesterday, the Amazee Cape Town teams of Labs and Metrics spent their 67 minutes for Mandela Day, with the non-profit organization Believe in Schatzi, which supports special needs children from the local Muizenberg community.
Last week, a few more than 100 Drupalistas gathered in sunny Barcelona for a conference. Let me share a few impressions from the sprints, trainings and sessions which were accompanied by good weather and the expected beach vibes.
Last week the Cape Town Drupal community gathered for the monthly meetup and to hear our own Nelly Moseki talk about Paragraphs.
Six years ago the team at Amazee decided to start a Drupal agency called Amazee Labs in Zurich, Switzerland (read more about the Amazee journey) where I worked as a Drupal developer. Over the years, our small team at Amazee Labs grew and my responsibilities as a developer shifted. Suddenly I wasn’t coding all day. I became a team lead and finally CTO. I code much less now than I did during those first years.
Everyone has a routine. For some, it’s their morning coffee, for others it’s going to the gym after work. For me, it’s heading to Mangia Pizza every Thursday from 7pm-9pm, for the last 6 years. Why do I do this? Because the Austin Drupal Dojo meets every Thursday, and we have a great crowd!
Last week, Sebastian and I attended Drupal Developer Days in Milan. An international group of 400 people gathered for a full-week conference in Italy to work and talk about Drupal 8.
It's this time of the year again! DrupalCon Europe is almost here and to help make the Dublin Con a great experience, Amazee Labs is chairing Tracks again. This DrupalCon comes with some additions to the standard program.
One year ago we launched the Amazee Talents Program, an initiative sponsored by the Amazee Group, allowing our teams in Austin, Zurich or Cape Town to win young talent for an internship. The first person selected from all the global applicants, was 19 year old Adam Romyn, from Cape Town, South Africa.
