As always at this time of the year, we set our course on DrupalCamp London 2019. DrupalCamp London is the event most awaited by us. This year our team was somewhat bigger. Grzesiek and Maciek were joined by Jaro. As always, we had great expectations and thirst for knowledge – and as always, we were fully satisfied.
High level of DrupalCamp London
The conference began with the inaugural presentation of a valued Google Chrome programmer, Rowan Merewood. Due to this, the participants gained a solid amount of knowledge regarding user experience and website optimisation at the start of the conference already. The level of successive lectures was rising higher and higher – a trend maintained to the very end.
What's more, we are incredibly proud and satisfied with our own presentations. There were as many as six lectures delivered by Droptica this year! But more about it below:)
6 Droptica lectures
After the last DrupalCamp London 2018, we became convinced that one should never give up. Where did this come from? Last year we have failed to get to deliver even one lecture during the conference. We drew conclusions and moved forward. The objective? Gaining a chance to present our – quite considerable – knowledge during DrupalCamp 2019.
We did it! In the end, DrupalCamp London has accepted as many as six of the presentations proposed by Droptica. We are bursting with pride! The conclusion? Obstinacy,company development, constant enhancement of knowledge and better preparation yielded better results then we have ever expected. As always, every small or big success gives us even more energy and motivation.
Below are the topics that we presented during the conference.
1. Maciej Łukiański:
- Droopler distribution - How can you save even 100 man-days during development of a new website with Drupal.
- Continuous integration in a Drupal project (docker, ansible, jenkins, …).
2. Grzegorz Bartman:
- Workflow in distributed Drupal agency.
- Scrum everywhere - how we implemented Scrum not only in software development projects.
3. Jarosław Bartman:
- Drupal 8 SEO.
- How to make Drupal editor-friendly.
We are particularly proud of the distinction given to Jaro's presentation about Drupal 8 SEO during the conference's summary carried out by Richard Dewick from Drupal Centric. You can read more about it here.
DrupalCamp London 2019 with Droptica until the next year
The conference is over. The emotions slowly subside. Droptica would like to thank DrupalCamp London for a great event. The sponsors – for bringing the event to life, and the organisers – for the effort put into its preparation. We are glad that during the conference we had a chance to meet many Drupal-buddies and make many new relationships.
DrupalCamp London 2019 is getting better year by year. It makes us happy, because – as the proverb goes – the appetite comes with eating. We start the countdown to the next conference while keeping the practical and impressive conference gadgets with us for the time being. See you at the next DrupalCamp London!
