DrupalCon in Prague

I spent a week in Prague attending, sponsoring, and volunteering in DrupalCon, and have finally recovered from the event.

First, a few words about Prague. It is stunningly beautiful city, as it was not leveled during World War II. There are monuments, castles, towers, bridges, and houses from several centuries – making the city layered and interesting. I didn’t have too much time to stroll around the city, as my calendar was filled with meetings and dinners, but I was able to squeeze in visits to the castle, Charles’ bridge and the astronomical clock. I also spent some time in the shopping malls without finding anything worth buying.

Most of the time was spent at DrupalCon. It was hosted conveniently next to a metro station and it took about ten minutes from our hotel in the city centre to the congress centre with metro. Not bad.

As usual, DrupalCon is a lot of fun and meeting both old friends and new acquaintances. As my company was sponsoring the event, I spent a lot of time at our booth, including also setting it up and dismantling it. I was also a track chair for business and strategy track and visited a few of sessions on my track. I was thrilled to note that all of them were excellent (as expected, of course…)

I flew back on Friday evening after popping in code sprints and the weekend was spent recovering.

In two weeks I’ll be in Lego building event in Ilmajoki with my boys and friends. And then to London for an extended weekend. This seems very good season travel-wise.
