A month ago the World Economic Forum (WEF) had its annual due in Davos. After many successful workshops in Gstaad we opted for a new location and headed for the same mountain resort as the WEF for this year's edition.
Here are some impressions of our WAF (Workshop And Fun) in Davos.

Another year has gone by and we're back from another great StartupCamp in Basel. This year we've reached an all time high with over 200 attendees! First of all we want to give a big shout out to all of our Sponsors, which are: DeinDeal, Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz and Microsoft as Platinum Sponsors; i-net, CTI-Start up and IBM as Gold Sponsors and Hofrat Suess as Silver Sponsor.
Once again the slots for the presentations were hotly sought after so we ended up opening an additional room to provide more slots for presentations. With 23 presentations throughout the day there surely was a little something there for everybody. Attendees also had the chance to meet some great new people and exchange and share new ideas over some good food during the lunch break.
Even though we've opened an additional room, the sessions were packed with people standing in the back.
And the StartupCamp wouldn't be right without a smashing after party! After the last sessions the crowd hit the restaurant "Alte Post" and brainstormed ideas for new businesses with a glass of wine or two and some fine food.
After another great day we'd like to give credit to all who contributed in making this year's StartupCamp a great one. And many thanks to Thomas Gemperle who shared his experience on his blog and Amazee Metrics for recapping their session their blog.
We hope to see you next year, same place, around the same time!
DrupalCon Austin is going down this summer in arguably the hippest city in the continental United States. And guess what? — the call for session submissions is already open! Austin will be an important conference to attend — its primary focus will be on Drupal 8 and helping our wonderful community ramp up for the new platform.
But even better than simply attending, why not try for a session of your own? Perhaps you’ve been honing your Twig skills and could benefit others by sharing your templating wisdom. Or maybe you have provoking ideas on how to ease a themer’s transition from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. Team workflows will surely require adjustments. Have thoughts on the topic? Well then, propose a session already!
The Frontend track is seeking topics specifically relating to:
- Twig — Drupal 8’s new default templating engine
- Libraries new to D8 (Backbone & Underscore.js)
- Frontend performance
- Device-agnostic, responsive development tips & tricks
- Frontend changes in Drupal 8 core
- Frontend best-practices for multilingual sites in D8
- … and of course, Frontend topics still relevant to Drupal 7
Hope to see you in June!
During the last weekend of January several Drupal contribution sprints will be taking place across the globe. The Swiss chapter will be happening at our office on both days.
Regardless of your knowledge level, if you have built a site in Drupal, you can contribute and are warmly welcomed.
We will split into pairs and work on Drupal core issues. Bring your laptop. If possible, install git before coming and git clone Drupal 8 core.
Pro tip for new folks: you can get a head start also by making an account on Drupal.org and taking a look at the Drupal Ladder.
- Date: 25.1 & 26.1
- Time: 9:00 a.m. - open end
- Location: Amazee Labs, Förrlibuckstrasse 30, 8005 Zürich
- Food & Drink: provided
- Registration: RSVP here
We are looking forward to welcome you for some serious sprinting.
John O'Nolan (twitter), the guy from ghost, kicked off day 2 of the DrupalCamp Vienna 2013 with a very impressive keynote about the topic "Focus - The value of choosing just one thing at the bazaar".
And directly after this presentation, Dagmar talked about why there are no bad clients, only bad project managers.
She attracted quite a crowd with her talk.
And if you missed the presentation you can watch it on YouTube.
Overall we had a really great time in Vienna! It was a pleasure to be here and connect with other open minded people.
A special Thank you goes out to the members of Drupal Austria who made this event possible.
I also have uploaded a selection of photos I took during the camp on flickr.
The memories of BADCamp and DrupalCon Prague are still fresh in my mind, however the Drupal event calendar allowed me to head east again. The destination of this trip was the DrupalCamp Vienna, which attracted around 300 people from all over the world.
Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire kicked off this camp with a keynote, inspired by the slogan of the event, about connecting open minds.
Drupal Austria did a great job organizing this event.
The FH Technikum Wien is a really nice venue. It offers a lot of daylight regardless of the weather. Also from an architectural point of view it is very interesting. Here are some impressions which I took this morning.
Update: My presentation was recorded and is already available on YouTube
After an eventful DrupalCon in Prague the Drupal calendar has another another workout lined-up for us. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday 300 Drupalistas will meet up in Vienna. Among them are our Michael (schnitzel), Dagmar (dagmita) and Boris (borisbaldinger). If you're heading there too, make sure to attend their sessions.
Friday, 22 November
Saturday, 23 November
- 11:00 Translation Management by schnitzel - Room Webshapers
- 12:00 There are no bad clients, just bad project managers by dagmita - Room Zensations
There won't be any Swiss chocolate available at our sessions. Come for the content and not for the bribes. ;)
1) The lean booth: As you might know (from our previous blog post), we had to come up with a new booth concept. A visit to the do-it-yourself shop did the rest and it took us (just) an amazing 20 bucks to get our platinum cottage refurbished. A rejuvenation cure!
Amazee's DrupalCon experience didn't get off to the best of starts: Not one night in Prague and our booth equipment and all the irresistible goodies were already swiped from the car!
Below the assorted leftovers from the burglary. Broken glass, everywhere, but nobody was hurt and the Amazee morale is up as always: Should you spot any Amazee banners, trolleys, flyers and T-shirts pop up anywhere outside the Con, pay us a visit and collect your head money at right our naked booth.
