Our preparations for DrupalCon Prague are slowly reaching fever pitch. Since it's less than a fortnight to go we want to share some of our enthusiasm with you. Here is an exclusive preview of two goodies we'll be giving away at the conference.
The first item are gorgeous stickers which certainly will visually enhance any object and spread the message of what Drupal does.
The second one is a super limited edition t-shirt with the same 'Making your web work' motive.
The major question that remains is how you'll get your hands on them. For a sticker just swing by our booth and pick one up, regarding the t-shirt let's just say: watch this space.
Hopefully these two items will have whet your appetite, but remember there is one further item we'll keep under lock and seal until Prague...

In less than a month's time the focus of the global Drupal community will shift to the capital of the Czech Republic for the European edition of this year's DrupalCon.
We are proud to announce that for a third year in a row we decided to sponsor Europe’s premier Drupal event. And again, we opted to increase our contribution and will welcome you at our platinum booth in the exhibit hall!
Kiev called before 6 am and Boris and me followed with an adventurous 12 km run through the heart of the Ukraine's 3m-capital, surf, turf and some impressive memorials included.
The camp, rich in participants, was as a great opportunity to deepen our poor Russian knowledge - however, neither Boris nor me managed to extract what went beyond the English slides. Topics covered: Symfony, Drupal 8 entities and plugins, Compass, SASS, Susy and more.
At 6 pm it was time to say Будьмо! and Alex, Boris and me headed for town to join the locals for some bowling and more:

Thanks to the Orga-Team, especially Slava (above), for being a caring host. We hope to see you soon again! Over on Flickr we've got some additional photos of the Drupal Camp experience.

The 2nd edition of Switzerland's trade fair for Internet, e-commerce, social media and online marketing ONE will take place on the 15 and 16 of May in Zurich. Like last year there will be a technology conference simultaneously taking place. At this conference our Head Technology Michael Schmid will be presenting in the Thursday afternoon slot.
With a further year's experience under his belt he will follow up on last year's "Responsive Web Design: Implementierung Dos & Don'ts" presentation. Having successfully released several responsive sites in the last twelve months, he will be able to provide valuable information on what to expect when launching a device agnostic site.
The other three presentations feature subjects like usability and esthetics, mobile first and what users love and hate.
If you want to attend his and the other presentations in that slot you can either purchase a ticket or try your luck in our giveaway.
For your chance to win a free admission (worth CHF 295) to the "Mobile Trends Konferenz" simply subscribe for our newsletter. The winner will be picked among all Newsletter subscribers by Monday 13 May at lunch time (CET). Good luck!

Last night, again, Web Monday Zurich stopped at the HUB. The 120 seats were gone within minutes - making it the fastest sold-out Web Monday Zurich of all siblings.
The presentations saw Emma Page of Evernote on the process of idea to product at the note taking service. Matthew Perkins and Alex Wimbush introduced the social network Yield Pop, which tries to leverage social media in the agricultural industry. Lukas Brüderlin and Richard Sewell from ic21 presented iCompare. Their service promises to find the best mobile phone deal in Switzerland for you.
Special thanks to Evernote for sponsoring this edition's location and the refreshments.
Yesterday saw the first Web Monday of the year, hosted by Elance. It took place at The HUB with about 120 attendees joining for another familiar get-together with lots of networking and learning opportunities.
Drupal Camps and Cons are just awesome. There are so many things to do: attend sessions, listen to keynotes, meet new people while having fun.
But there is also another thing happening which is not really seen by most of the attendees: Drupal Core Development.
The core contributors use these opportunities to meet in person and decide about things which are hard to discuss via IRC or the Drupal.org Issue Queues. These meetings not only happen before or after the actual conference, also during the conference. Usually there is a Coder Lounge where people are working on Drupal's Core and drive it forward.
Especially here at BADCamp, it is the last real possibility to define things before the Drupal 8 Feature Freeze. This means everybody gives more than 100% to make the next Drupal version the best it can be.
As an active contributor to the Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative it is essential to attend these meetings in order to know at first hand what was decided. And of course to get a lot of coding done.
