It’s a track record! For the upcoming DrupalCon in Dublin, 13 tracks will feature talks for an audience of thousands of people coming together for Drupal. We are proud to be represented in 6 of those tracks.
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.
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.
Today’s the day to reconsider your hosting. We are launching amazee.io, a state-of-the-art hosting service with an integrated development and hosting environment. Think of a battle-proven system, automated deployments, full congruence between your development and productive environment, and a very competitive pricing.
“Why another Drupal hosting provider?” You might ask. Read why: stories.amazee.io
Everybody who ever had to keep a website secure knows how hard this is: Almost every day there are updates for all the different services that run your website; starting from the Linux Kernel, to the web server, and the content management system, in our case Drupal, itself.
The first official DrupalCon in Mumbai, India brought together more than 1000 attendees - from not only India, but from allover the world. Nine communities from across India partnered with the Drupal Association to make this event a special experience for everyone involved.
This is part two of my blog post series about DrupalCon Asia. Jump back to part one for my general impressions from India or read one of the various other blog posts describing DrupalCon Asia. I’d like to highlight some of the communities that were represented and involved in making DrupalCon Asia a success in this post.
DrupalCon Asia was an impressive and very successful event, bringing together more than 1000 Drupalistas from India, Asia and the entire world.
This conference was special in many ways. The spirits of the various Indian Drupal communities definitely had a huge impact on how outside visitors, like myself, perceived the whole conference. It was great to see so many people from all over India and beyond gather for 4 days of sessions, sprinting, BoFs and more.
