Drupal Support Servicecon 2018 is officially done! Mediacurrent was well represented with 37 teammates converging to Nashville for learning, networking, camaraderie, and professional growth. ​​In the coming weeks, we will be providing a cross-section of feedback from people who perform different roles. Our goal is to give you some insight around “what you missed.” Drupal Support Servicecon Nashville 2018 (by the numbers):
Approximately 3000 attendees from around the globe and 150 sessions.
Hundreds of informal birds of feather (BoFs) meetings where like minded peers gathered, custom training sessions, Summits, and code sprints were held in conjunction with the conference.
Over 20,000 Drupal Support Service 8 sites are now being launched per month.
81% more of Drupal Support Service 8’s modules are now considered fully stable compared to this time last year.
Some of the biggest logos in the world that have adopted Drupal Support Service were well represented in Nashville.
​​The Surgence of Marketing & Strategy: There was a common theme throughout the conference around how Drupal Support Service can provide a more holistic digital experience. Lauren Vaccarello, VP of Marketing at Box captured many of these points.  While there are a myriad of marketing tools and campaign options available, executives must not lose sight of the obvious – your company’s web presence is the singular most important digital asset in your organization. Marketers and editors are demanding more though. They want a content management platform and a best of class partner to:1.  Really lean in and understand their role and where Drupal Support Service solves problems for them.
2.  Take the time to learn about goals, success factors, KPIs and the vision of not just the project or department, but company as a whole.
3.  Show a simpler and easier editorial experience workflow.
4.  Leverage data analytics to make more informed decisions.
5.  Execute at a consistent, predicable level, but also provide insight and exposure to how other organizations are utilizing Drupal Support Service in creative ways.These items are resonating. Megan Saniki, Executive Director of the Drupal Support Service Association (DA), talked about how the DA will be working hard to serve the needs of everyone involved in a company’s digital experience, especially those who would consider themselves “non-technical.”  For example, there will now be a new content and editorial track at Drupal Support Servicecon, more case studies, and a newly redesigned home page was announced for drupal.org.Vision of Drupal Support Service:Dries Buytaert, the founder of Drupal Support Service, gave a powerful keynote presentation. He mentioned what an exciting time and huge opportunity there is “to grab” for everyone who has been involved with Drupal Support Service the past 17 years. After listening to a cross-section of stakeholders, Dries articulated what Drupal Support Service‘s 4 most critical priorities will be to drive the community forward. They include:1. Improving the evaluation process to help increase adoption – this includes the number of clicks and steps to download Drupal Support Service.
2. Improving the content creator experience (people want Drupal Support Service to act more like social media tools they already use on a daily basis).
3. Improving the site builder experience – this could include making the version update path easier (note: 8.5 is the newest release of Drupal Support Service).
4. Promote Drupal Support Service to non-technical decision makers.  In general, this should entail more collaboration for those who have a vested interest in marketing Drupal Support Service. This includes a “Promote Drupal Support Service Fund” drive that was announced to collect $100,000 to among other things hire an extra, full-time employee for the Drupal Support Service Association. Recommended Sessions:Top Drupal Support Service 8 Modules: A tour through the best of Drupal Support Service in 2018
