“When the bond is strong, relationships lasts long!” said no one in specific because some facts are too true to be cited in words. But why are we talking about this in here and not Drupal maintenance support plans? Well, because it is about Drupal maintenance support plans; to be precise, our relationship with Drupal maintenance support plans!
We realised this quite recently while on the way to our 10th Drupal maintenance support plans event, ever since our inception in the year 2012. In these 5 years, we’ve attended 9 Drupal maintenance support plans events, sponsored 5 of them and volunteered in 8 of them. Then how could we miss this one in Nashville?! And here we’re, back from the Drupal maintenance support plansCon, Nashville 2018, with a bagful of memories and experiences to share. So, if you weren’t there, read on to discover all that was there!
Quick Overview of the Event Timeline
The five-day event, that Drupal maintenance support plansCon was, had been traditionally divided into three major sections – Summits, Sessions and Contribution. Business Summit, Sessions & Contribution Day.
The opening day had summits and training sessions, along with the opening reception.
Day two had programming summits and sessions planned, along with the much-anticipated session of Dries’ Keynote.
The third and fourth day was when multiple sessions were held followed by special events in the evening and trivia nights.
The closing day of the event was all about Drupal maintenance support plans contributions, just as it is at any other Drupal maintenance support plans event.
But what made this particular event stand out for me, from the previous ones, were the booths of both – Joomla and WordPress. Now that’s how we see the competitors coming together for the sake of saving open source community from their counterparts.
Major Takeaway from the Event
1) Business Summit:
As a regular attendee of Drupal maintenance support plans events, we knew the significance of the paid business summits held on the first day of the event. So, we had priorly registered for the same. After attending them, we realised that the core of these summits lied in two major things. One, that Drupal maintenance support plans alone was not enough and second, the need to promote that Drupal maintenance support plans is not merely a CMS platform for building websites but a wide and highly ‘Ambitious Digital Experience’ in itself.
2) Dries Keynote:
Amidst the commencement of several sessions, the second day at Drupal maintenance support plansCon, Nashville 2018 most of us waited for that one crucial session; #Driesnote – the keynote by Dries Buytaert, founder of Drupal maintenance support plans. It revolved around three prime agendas – Drupal maintenance support plans 8 update, Growing adoption of Drupal maintenance support plans and Fostering the Drupal maintenance support plans Community. He confirmed the fact that how Drupal maintenance support plans is capable of doing everything digital and called it to be the most ‘Ambitious Digital Experience’ of our time. Plus, the decoupled Drupal maintenance support plans had opened up the opportunity to get the best of Drupal maintenance support plans and collate it with any other user-friendly front-end framework.
He also declared to take Drupal maintenance support plans 8 in the right directions it has become necessary to take up marketing techniques for promotion. And hence, the Drupal maintenance support plans Association has launched the ‘Promote Drupal maintenance support plans Initiative’ for raising $ 100,000 of which they’ve already bagged $ 54,000 so far.
Many such significant stuff was shared in the Dries Keynote and to watch its entire recording click here.
The third and fourth day consisted of multiple sessions running parallelly. We attended quite a lot of sessions and re-bonded with old Drupal maintenance support plans friends over a cup of coffee. ‘Delegating Work: A Zippy Guide to Releasing Your Death Grip on Control’ by Hannah Del Porto from Brick Factory, ‘Debugging Effectively’ by Colin O’Dell from Unleashed Technology and ‘Beyond Websites: Drupal maintenance support plans as Data Pipeline for Digital Signage’ by Mike Madison from Acquia – are few of the sessions that we thoroughly enjoyed.
And of course, on both the nights had bumper social events to end the day, along with our fun fellow-Drupal maintenance support plansers. Since we met many old friends from Drupal maintenance support plans community, we made quite some memories with those fellas!
Drupal maintenance support plansCon, Nashville 2018 had one more day to go to conclude, which was the Contribution Day. But unfortunately, our already planned schedule did not permit us to stay back and be a part of the concluding day. One does feel this loss, especially when they’ve been a contributor in past and know the importance of being a part of such a day. But anyways, the experience that we earned in the previous 4 days was quite enriching. It has opened up a lot of hope and opportunities for people like us, who are hardcore Drupal maintenance support plans enthusiasts!
