DrupalCon Seattle Recap - A week to remember

I was so excited about going to DrupalCon Seattle, I started packing one week in advance. Granted, I decided to travel light, so my carry-on suitcase quickly showed the task wouldn’t take long.

DrupalCon Seattle Recap

Every DrupalCon I have been lucky enough to attend has been special in their own way. This was my first time going back to the States after moving out almost two years ago, so after an airport hiccup (protip: make sure to apply for a new ESTA if you happen to renew your passport after you felt very accomplished getting it ready so much time in advance) I was happy to set my regular-sized foot onto its northwest corner.  

Looking up to Columbia Center, the tallest building in Seattle and the state of Washington.

The week started very nicely, with some time to explore the city and enjoy a selection of its fine food. As there weren’t any sessions on until Wednesday, Tuesday was mostly hanging out with teammates and other friendly faces in the contribution room.

After a delicious and fun dinner where all Amazees gathered, it was party time. One of the highlights of the week was getting to attend the Museum of Pop Culture at Pantheon’s party, which featured some awesome exhibits. My favourite part was a sound lab where one could learn how to play real instruments (Louie Louie anyone?).

Wednesday and Thursday were packed with brain-revving sessions. Gatsby, data-fetching strategies, and front-end performance were a few of the topics that got a lot of circulation on the printed schedule. But it was diversity and inclusion that rightfully took the main stage at the keynotes. Dries Buytaert began his speech acknowledging that Open Source is not a meritocracy, and Marcy Sutton and Nythia Ruff closed with essential insights on how to use our collective power to build inclusive communities and products.

All in all, there were many moments that made this past week remarkable. Many involved spending time with the team, others meeting new people. Some were expected, like the Women in Drupal luncheon. Others were not, like the Movement BoF that got me walking as if I was auditioning for the Ministry of Silly Walks.

One remarkable moment was definitely getting to give my (first ever) presentation at a DrupalCon (I can confirm, the Speakers-only room has special catering!). All of these moments made me once more very grateful for being able to be a part of this. I’m looking forward next time I get to play suitcase Tetris and find out what will make the next DrupalCon a one-of-a-kind experience.
