Attending Drupalaton is a yearly tradition for many of our developers. This international conference, happening at the scenic lake Balaton, is organized by the Hungarian Drupal community. This is always a great opportunity to meet with Drupal contributors and users coming from all over Europe and to share know-how and good practices.
The 2017 edition was quite special for us, because Inovae became a sponsor of the event. We are particularly proud of it, since we believe that supporting the Drupal community is part of our mission as an agency using thoroughly this open-source platform.
During the 4 days conference, we had the chance to deepen our knowledges on the front-end side by learning more about the new and exciting CSS grid property and the trendy Headless Drupal. Our back-end developers also got their hands dirty, exploring avenues of Drupal that we don't usually think of, like the Internet of Things and discussing continuous integration tools and best practices.
Non-technical attendees were far from being left aside with a very inspiring talk about our organizations culture and how this affects the Drupal community, as well as a brainstorming session regarding the process of hiring new talents and who should take part in it.
All this hard work had to be balanced out with the traditional cruise party on the lake Balaton, where we could appreciate the beautiful view and, of course, enjoy even more discussions about Drupal.
We came back from this event energized, the head filled with new tricks to try out and ideas to help our clients reach their goals. We are looking forward to the next Drupalaton and are thankful to the organization committee, from which our colleague Tamás is a key member, for the seamless logistics of the event and, more importantly, for their warm welcome.
