A Week of Learning & Growth at DrupalCon Baltimore
It’s hard to believe that another DrupalCon has come and gone — it feels like just yesterday when we were mourning the passing of Drupal 6 in New Orleans and unveiling our new branding in Los Angeles. DrupalCon Baltimore was a success for us, and we wanted to share some of our memories from the event.
Our Week at DrupalCon
It was an honor to introduce Dries on Tuesday morning at DrupalCon. We were grateful that we had the opportunity to discuss two projects that are near and dear to our hearts: The Open Y Drupal distribution, and Drupal Global Training Days.
We were also thrilled to have so many visitors drop by our booth. It was great seeing so many old friends and making new ones, and we’d like to say congratulations again to our raffle winners: Mark (pictured below) & Dennis, who won Apple Watches, and Patrick, who won an Amazon Echo.
FFW Session Recordings
We had a great time sharing our knowledge in trainings, sessions, and BOFs. If you didn’t catch the FFW crew in action, you can watch recordings of our sessions here:
- Anti-Crash Course: How to Avoid Drupal’s Most Common Pitfalls
- Using Drupal to Power the YMCA
- Scaling and Sharing: Building Custom Drupal Distributions for Federated Organizations
- Less Is More: What Modules, Features or API's Should We Cut From Core?
- Docksal: Better than VMs
Farewell, Baltimore; Hello, Vienna!
As always, we stayed for the community. We were heartened to see so many people working together to grow the project, navigate new territory, and have thoughtful conversations about the future of the Drupal software and the community’s governance. We’re looking forward to the continued discussions about the community’s structure and future; if you’d like to participate, you can find future meeting information here.
It was a pleasure to sponsor such a great event. We’re looking forward to seeing who we meet and what great conversations we have across the pond at DrupalCon Vienna this September.
