Drupal Europe promises to be the most significant community lead conference in the history of Drupal on the continent. Redefining and reinvigorating what a major Drupal conference means to the community, business users and agency leaders Drupal Europe promises to be an exciting and rewarding experience.
Last week I was able to attend Drupalcamp London and present a session called “Drupal 101”. The session was about how everyone is welcome in the Drupal Community, irrespective of who you are. At Drupalcamp London I met people from all walks of life whose lives had been changed by Drupal. I caught up with a friend called Ryan Szrama who is a perfect example of my message, he conducted a brilliant speech at Drupalcamp about “doing well by doing good” so I’d like to share his story with you.
Drupalcamp London returns in March for its 6th year. As the largest Drupal camp in Europe, it provides a scale of high-quality knowledge I rarely see elsewhere. If you’re new to Drupalcons and camps, Drupalcamp is a three-day knowledge-sharing conference in London that attracts a wide variety of over 600 Drupal stakeholders, including developers, agencies, business owners, and end users.
Prolific North Live is back for the third year and so are we! Over 120 exhibitors and +4000 attendees are predicted to attend the largest conference showcasing businesses based in the North of England.
What an interesting year it’s been for CTI in 2017. We’ve had plenty of things to celebrate and have seen huge growth this year on the back of a range of new and existing client wins.
I’m pleased to announce that we’ve been awarded ISO 9001:2015 accreditation, which covers all of the services we offer including design, development, marketing and support. This big milestone has been a long time in the making, so I wanted to describe the journey we’ve taken to achieving this accreditation.
The rate of innovation in digital seems ever growing in pace. In the past 5 years alone we’ve seen Uber, Deliveroo, Amazon Prime, and click and collect become ubiquitous across our cities. Introducing frictionless payment and rapid access to goods and services, these disruptive startups and technologies continue to raise consumer expectations.
I always look forward to unconferences. It’s their unpredictability and element of surprise that I enjoy, you never quite know what the day will bring. I love the edgy feel, the lower barrier to entry, and that it’s OK to fluff your words or try something new. Sensing the nerves of the ones who unexpectedly present for the first time, witnessing how energising their experience is, discovering a topic or theme for the first time, or taking the mic because you feel inspired by others are all reasons I’m drawn to attend and why CTI Digital was proud to be one of the sponsors.
The North West Drupal User Group Unconference last weekend was no exception in terms of inclusivity and our Drupal team were there in force.
On the last weekend in September 2017, I attended the PHPNW conference in Manchester on behalf of CTI Digital. This was something of a special occasion being the 10th anniversary of the conference, but also something of a sad one as it turned out to be the last conference for the foreseeable future.
