After a "beerfull" bavarian night out we managed to get ourselves up and running for a beautiful second day at DrupalCon Munich. The morning keynote was held by Anke Domscheit-Berg as she took the stage to talk about the benefits of open data and how governments and citizens alike should embrace the idea as we move towards a more collaborative world of eDemocracy and eParticipation.
The day was followed by many interesting DrupalCon sessions, BoFs (Birds of Feathers) and of course the Core Conversations where the team split up to visit topics of their interest and likings, sometimes even finding themselves in the same room.
Brian Teeman (@brianteeman), Co-Founder of Joomla!, unfortunately didn't give us any insight into his newfound career as a tech-influenced fashion designer, but rather explained how the community in Joomla! works and differs from the one that we know so very well and love.
Open ears at the Day Stage heard our very own Michael Schmid (@Schnitzel), discuss development best practices with Gijs Nelissen, Sébastien Lissarrague, Venky Goteti and Florian Loretan.
Our successful contests continued throughout the day and so did the lucky recipients of our sought-after Periodic Table of Drupal Modules, this included both happy Dries Buytaert (@Dries) and Angie Byron (@webchick).
