It's this time of the year again! DrupalCon Europe is almost here and to help make the Dublin Con a great experience, Amazee Labs is chairing Tracks again. This DrupalCon comes with some additions to the standard program.
One year ago we launched the Amazee Talents Program, an initiative sponsored by the Amazee Group, allowing our teams in Austin, Zurich or Cape Town to win young talent for an internship. The first person selected from all the global applicants, was 19 year old Adam Romyn, from Cape Town, South Africa.
Have you ever watched a movie and felt like you were actually there? The new virtual reality technologies take this feeling a (huge) step further. Companies are beginning to pick up on this and use this technology, especially 360° videos, for marketing. We’ve had two experts sharing their experience with 360° video projects for their organizations.
Around 130 professionals who care about user experience design and usability gathered last Saturday at ZHdK (Toni Areal) in Zürich to share and discuss all the hot topics on and around UX. Here are a few of my thoughts and impressions of that day.
Save the date for the special WebFriday on June 3rd!
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.
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.
