Recap: Drupal Developer Days 2017 In Seville
Some job application cards we brought.
- The venue, a replica of the fortress known as Ciudad Heróica of Cartagena de Indias: This was for sure the biggest highlight and a welcomed surprise for all attendees. An incredible and inspiring location that stands for expeditions and adventures.
- All Keynotes were delivered by women: It’s a little bit too easy to find all-male lineups of speakers in tech events, and we are aware of how often brilliant women don’t get the recognition that they deserve. Therefore, we really appreciate the decision of the organizers to select four women to hold the keynotes.
- All sprints in the same room: Due to the venue’s characteristics, all sprints, sponsors’ stands and sessions were located at the same place. It allowed the participants to share their experiences more easily.
- Sessions and workshops: A high-quality and diverse selection of sessions and workshops was held during the whole week. Sessions such as Search and Beyond with Elastic Search or Challenges of using a single theme for a complex multi-site Drupal 8 installation, and workshops like Getting up to speed with testing on Drupal 8 are perfect examples of how enriching the Dev Days can be.
