With the end of September, DrupalCon Vienna is also coming closer and we can't wait to welcome you to our booth #S08. As a Silver sponsor of the event, we'll have the chance to present continuous update management to you on site. But - we also can't wait to learn a lot from other agencies and attendees! At DrupalCon there's always a chance to learn something new, be it a whole new approach or a connecting piece of unidentified issues - by asking but most of all by listening.
Manuel, our CEO, and I spent our last Thursday and Friday on the European Drupal Business Days in Frankfurt, Germany. The event was the third of its sort, attracting CEOs, Marketing Managers and other influencer. As the event title might tell in advance, it was a business and marketing tailored session schedule throughout.
After a kicking Keynote from Jeffrey aka Jam, Manuel just jumped on the “sell value, not Drupal code” train with his session “recurring revenue in the Drupal business”. Sure, we all know the power of "content first" but do we really adjust our thoughts and steps to this mantra? I don't think so. Value entails revenue. Not the other way around.
Let’s see where to start first. There will be a lot of “first” today in this post, that’s really exciting and shows that 2017 started quite encouraging. The Splash Awards took place yesterday in Hamburg - it’s the first time that Germany hosted this Drupal event. The first Splash Awards ever were organized by the Dutch Drupal Foundation in the Netherlands back in 2014 (thank you for encouraging all other countries!).
Our CEO Manuel and Joe, Marcel and Serkan from our team visited the last Drupal event of this year in our calendar: DrupalCamp Munich alias #dugmuc. It's been a pleasure to support this event as Silver Sponsor! With the 4th of December, we closed the Drupal season with great “Days”, “Camps” and “Cons” in 2016.
Dublin, 27. Sept. 2016. “Describe the DrupalCon in just one word!” - “EXCITING!”
First of all, I want to thank everyone who made my first DrupalCon this awesome and extra special!
Our whole team enjoyed a week full of new experiences, great sessions and - of course - old and new friends! The place, Dublin, was perfect to “seal” a new friendship or strengthen an old one with a good morning coffee (thanks to Commerce Guys by actualys and Mailchimp, the two coffee break sponsors!) or a good cold Guinness (I tried to remember the bar names, but actually I guess I sealed a lot of new friendships..).
