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?
This year's DrupalCamp Baltics was held yesterday in Tallinn, Estonia. Exove had the opportunity to be both a co-organiser and gold sponsor for the camp, and I was part of the organising committee.
Planning started already early this year when the leaders of Estonian Drupal companies - me from Exove, Ivo Nellis from Fenomen, and Merle Randlepp from Wunderkraut - got together to discuss the date and the location of the camp. We soon invited also Toomas Pippar from Mild Creative to work on the brand and visuals for the camp - and thanks to Toomas, the camp was top-notch visually.
The Finnish Scouts - or officially The Scouts and Guides of Finland - have been using Drupal for several years. We invited Arttu Tanner from the Scouts to give a Drupal Café session of the reasons and benefits of choosing Drupal.
The Scouts have been using Drupal for both their big events, such as jamborees, and also for their site. Flip through the slides on our slideshare channel or below to learn more.
Late yesterday evening we launched our YouTube channel! The channel will feature videos about our design and development practices, information about our platforms - Drupal, Node.js, WordPress, Symfony, etc. - and also interesting clips about digitalisation.
We work extensively with open technologies, such as Drupal, WordPress, Node.js, Symfony, etc. We truly believe that open source is the best way for us to serve our customers, as it combines excellent quality, fast innovation, lower costs, and possibilities to tinker with the platform.
I've recently been fortunate enough to be invited to talk about open source goodness in various events. Yesterday I was in ICT Expo in Helsinki presenting my thoughts of why and how open source works better than closed systems.
We had again an excellent Drupal Café on Tuesday. Our Technology Director Kalle Varisvirta presented how one can accelerate Drupal performance with Node.js and MongoDB. The keynote was followed by a lively discussion about Drupal, Node, Angular and React.
The slides of Kalle's keynote are available on our Slideshare channel and also embedded in this entry.
DrupalCamp London was last weekend, and as usual, it was big, diverse, and truly global event. With almost 600 participants, it is the biggest DrupalCamp in Europe and among the biggest in the world.
Our CEO Janne Kalliola and Technology Director Kalle Varisvirta had the pleasure of presenting a session in the camp. We have uploaded the slides to our Slideshare channel and they can be viewed also in this blog post.
We had an excellent Drupal Café on Tuesday. The topic was Drupal Commerce and the keynote was given by our own Hiski Valli. Hiski is a seasoned Drupal Commerce developer and he gave a very good tutorial of Drupal Commerce building blocks. The discussion after the keynote was also lively with a lot of questions.
Hiski's slides can be found on our Slideshare channel and they have also been embedded in this entry.
