LimoenGroen's contributions to DrupalCon Amsterdam
Five signficant contributions to DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019
Next week DrupalCon will take place in Amsterdam. At DrupalCon over 1500 professionals and enthusiasts meet to exchange ideas and work together on the popular open source content management system Drupal. Tens of thousands of passionate people work together on this common platform that serves digital platforms of organisations like Amnesty International, Greenpeace and Fox. LimoenGroen has been actively involved with Drupal for as long as it exists, with many of its team members involved in code contributions and organising events for 10 years. Here are our five significant contributions to this year’s DrupalCon.
Whether DrupalCon is 20 minutes from our office or a day’s journey away, we have been present at DrupalCons with most of our team for eight years now. Traditionally DrupalCon has been travelling across Europe, with Dublin, Vienna and Barcelona a few of the recent stops. While LimoenGroen is a one of the top tier Drupal agencies in the Dutch market, we are actively involved in international Drupal events. From keynote presentations to mentoring code or contributing to Drupal’s next release, we take up our part in contributing to Drupal (read our post on quantifying our contributions to open source). For almost a year now, our team has been actively involved with DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019. We are honored and grateful for the opportunity to do our part for this hallmark event for Drupal. Here is what we have been doing this year.
1. Advisory committee
DrupalCon Europe was paused and re-evaluated after 2017, where it needed to assess its business model in order to maintain a sustainable event. Last year, a team from the Drupal Community stepped in to fill the void of the yearly European conference and organized Drupal Europe. After assessing the operational challenges the Drupal Association decided to pursue a licensing model that would address the operational challenges while maintaining the culture and value of the event. Last year it was announced Kuoni Congress was contracted by the Drupal Association to produce a new DrupalCon in 2019 in a economically sustainable way. It was also around Drupal Europe, the call for an advisory committee was made in order to advise Kuoni on delivering the traditional European DrupalCon. Imre Gmelig Meijling stepped into this advisory committee, which kicked off at Kuoni in Vienna and has been involved with the organisation on a weekly basis.
