Drupal Developer Days 2015 in Montpellier

Last week, a few coworkers and I went to the Drupal Developer Days in Montpellier. With the main focus being on sprints, contribution to core and on pushing the release of Drupal 8 forward, the Dev Days are a great event for drupalistas to meet the community, share knowledge and work on Drupal.

The DDD was the best drupal related event I’ve been to so far. Its relative small number of attendees - about 300 instead of the 2000+ that attend the european DrupalCons - made it effortless to meet new people. The event was well organised, with good infrastructure and freshly cooked meals every day.

As a site builder interested in contributing more to the community I started the first sprint day in the mentoring sprints learning the best practices for contributing to Drupal. I was surprised at the kindness and patience from the mentors who spend all their time making new members feel welcome at the expense of having fun with their own code and projects.

Amazee Labs launches first customer website on Drupal 8

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.

DrupalCamp Moscow 2014

It must be weird, but living in Russia I have never attended a russian Drupal event. I was at DrupalCon Prague 2013 and have attended ukrainian DrupalCamps several times before. The Ukraine is located much closer to the town where I live than to the russian capital, so for me it’s faster to get to the neighbour country rather than to visit Moscow.
