DrupalCamp London 2015

I’ve been fortunate to participate in DrupalCamp London for three years in a row – actually, as long as the Camp has been organised. This year I also had a session about making meaning by open source contributions to people near and far. The slides can be found at Exove’s Slideshare channel.

The camp is one of the largest DrupalCamps in the world and probably the largest in Europe, this weekend it hosted in total around 600 people. It is always good fun to see a lot of familiar faces and enjoy excellent discussions spiced with some sessions. I even ended up in sprints to help in a JavaScript questions the coders had.

Besides DrupalCamp, I’ve been meeting prospects and clients – we’ve been working on the UK market for a few months now, and our story has a very good traction. Of course, it takes a lot of time to convince people to buy systems from a newcomer, but we are extremely patient.

I didn’t have any time to stroll around the city – only a quick dash to Lego store – but fortunately London is such a familiar city nowadays that I can cope with this.
