About a week ago, 1,024 people were probably quite excited packing for what would be a not-to-be-forgotten event: their first ever DrupalCon. Some would be flying to New Orleans from as far away as Australia, some driving 8+ hours, some travelling with their co-workers, some by themselves. I bet most shared the same goal I had: to learn as much as possible. And I bet all of them discovered that while learning is important, DrupalCons are really about the people.
Der Social Media Gipfel (aka #SMGZH) tanzt für einmal aus der Reihe. Im Rahmen der Informatiktage 2016 veranstalten wir einen Spezial-Gipfel für Langschläfer. Teenager erklären uns, wie sie die sozialen Medien (Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat und Whatsapp; die Auswahl ist gross!) nutzen und welches Tool gerade hip ist. Ein Einblick, wie man ihn so schnell nicht wieder bekommt: Die Teenager nehmen uns mit in ihren Online-Alltag.
Over 3,100 people attended DrupalCon New Orleans last week, a successful event by any measure. I spent some time talking with a few attendees in an attempt to tell a collective story through the accounts of a few. This is Humans of DrupalCon: New Orleans.
DrupalCon New Orleans marks my 7th DrupalCon — the third as a member of the program team. Having been to many of these throughout the years, the cons continue to provide vast opportunity for professional inspiration and connections with exceptional people. They're also exhaustively fun and a great way to travel.
Much to our delight, the Amazee Labs lounge has been a topic of conversation here at DrupalCon New Orleans. We also love a good lounge, and this sponsorship is, and has been, an opportunity to showcase our passion for design, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. The cherry on top? We make a bunch of new friends by inviting people to hang with Amazee Labs.
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
Have you ever thought that the placement of cookies in the shop window and their quantity can affect your perception of which cookies are more popular? Have you ever considered that literally everything around you is architectured in a certain way? Have you ever had a feeling that Information architecture is everywhere and in everything? This may sound weird, but this is true. Some time ago I was lucky to attend a workshop “Information Architecture for Everyone” given by Abby Covert, and I can’t stop thinking about the lessons I learned. It is now time to share them with you.
The most important project management camp in Switzerland is taking place in Zürich on June 3rd 2016.
We at Amazee Labs changed our development process a couple of months ago. We use now an agile scrum process to develop web projects for our customers.
We all know the English idiom that "A picture is worth more than a thousand words". Coming from 1911, this statement is also true more than ever in the digital age we're living in today. One can hardly disagree that some of the key smartphone features are its camera, the picture quality and the possibility to share them. At the #SMGZH of April 6, 2016 we learned from Thomas Benkö and Adrian Seitz about good ways to use Instagram to ensure a good online presence and how to let pictures talk.
