DrupalCon Vienna is approaching quickly and if you haven’t done so far, it’s a good time to book your travels and accommodation. Even for an insider it is hard to keep track of everything that is going on, so in this post I would like to share an overview of what’s planned so far to keep in mind when planning your stay in Vienna.

It’s almost time for the next WebMonday event in 2017, and we're excited to share the details with you.
After a long wait, we can finally share the exciting 3-minute video of our Amazee10 celebrations we had in April. If a picture can speak a thousand words, then this video can translate into many chapters of our Amazee-ing story and the journey of both our team and company.
On June 8 and 9, I attended the Lead Developer UK conference for the first time. Its unique format allowed us to learn about leading and motivating teams in the tech industry from experts.
As head of our new, exciting Global Maintenance Team (GMT) team, I was excited to be invited to participate in a Lead Workshop, which took place during the Amazee10 celebrations in Cape Town in April 2017.
On Monday, 10 April, a handful of Amazee's distributed project and team leads met for an all-day workshop. Our Amazee Group Chairman, Greg Gerhardt, led the discussion as the team talked through challenges of Agency life.
Every few years at DrupalCon, a new theme sweeps through the community. It’s a conceptual theme—a motif, a forward-looking glimpse into the future (not the kind with a .info file). The topic tends to dominate conversations and fill sessions. People have varying ideas of how to best approach the new frontier.
For DrupalCon Baltimore I
was volunteered to help with the lounge for Amazee Labs. This was my first year helping to set up a booth for any conference event and I learned a lot in the process. Fortunately, we have seasoned boothers which made the whole process look easy, but I realized there must be a lot of learned knowledge locked away. In the spirit of open source, I asked six of the vendors here to answer a few questions about their experiences and all were happy to contribute.
The following interviews have been edited heavily (due to my poor journalistic skills). Any and all mistakes are mine.
It has only been a couple of days, but time seems to bend in strange ways when you are at a DrupalCon. From crashing a violin recital to smashing crabs to our hearts’ content, this week so far has been generous with fulfilled promises and delightful surprises.
