Building a good customer relationship can be tricky sometimes and it has many factors. What matters is the transparency and the trust. Being transparent, having a freely flowing discussion with all matters concerned helps build trust. Transparency means sharing also the fears and risks of the project.
I heard an inspiring keynote from Imre Gmelig Meijling at DrupalCamp Helsinki recently. Among other things, he spoke about creating good customer experience with Drupal projects through transparency, caring and good communication.
We are excited about the upcoming DrupalCamp Helsinki 2016. This year we are a gold sponsor among five other companies. DrupalCamp Helsinki will be organised on August 26-27.
In addition to the sponsorship, we also have two speakers at DrupalCamp:
Anastasios Daskalopoulos: QA in the Development Process
Neste started their digital services renewal project with a planning phase of 2-4 years of duration. They had 6 vendors shortlisted for RFP round, and the process resulted in selecting Drupal as their web content management system.
When it comes to versatility and popularity, Drupal is often the obvious CMS choice. Like all CMS solutions it has its issues but also a lot going for it. This is my second DrupalCamp and I think the topics of the presentations look quite representative of what Drupal is about and what challenges it poses to professionals delivering solutions to customers.
Otso Kivekäs from Codento gives a keynote presentation in DrupalCamp Finland 2015.
I didn’t know what to expect from DrupalCamp 2015, other than what I had been able to pry out of my workmates beforehand. Those explanations were also pretty vague “you go there and you listen to a bunch of guys”. However, the explanations turned out to be more accurate than I expected. Still, the event gave me a couple of new thoughts that I’d like to share. Here’s a couple of points from a front-end developer’s perspective.
Drupal 8 content management system was relased last month. The release had been awaited, and was celebrated in 207 parties around the world. One of the parties was in Helsinki. It was inspiring to see a great number of Drupal developers and users from different companies in Finland come together, share thoughts on Drupal and celebrate the release.
Even if I have been doing software development for a couple years, I never had the chance to participate in an open source camp. My experience this far has been limited to watching some keynote videos but never seeing one live.
I was not sure what to expect of DrupalCamp Helsinki, but fortunately the event organization was perfect and it started without problems. We had nice conference rooms, nice seats and sound.
I've had the privilege of attending some great events this year: WordCamp, PHP / eZ Publish Summer Camp and finally DrupalCon. These were all great experiences for a professional working with Web Content Management, but the most food for thought came from a much more modest event: A two hour breakfast seminar titled "The right content for the right context".
The three larger events focused on specific Content Management Systems:
There has been a radical shift in how enterprises want to use Drupal. Their focus is moving from sites to integrated services., and this change is typically accompanied with a set of new technologies, such as MongoDB and Node.js. Still, the role of Drupal has become more central than ever. How?
