I finally added all the mentor BoFs to the google core mentoring calendar. 7ss54o2foktlc8b75d1gest4do@group.calendar.google.com Use it to add them to your calendar too. Mentors will want to mentor... and participants might want to come to some of the BoFs for setting up your local dev environment.

I also have some session picks, and my core convo locked into my schedule.

The Drupal Dev Days are the most important camps for Drupal developers in the EU. With the exception of Drupal Con, no other event draws as much attention and people from all over the world to talk, sprint and learn about Drupal. In 2013 the dev days took place in Dublin and again we had a great time hanging out with around 200 people and doing some heavy sprinting on Drupal 8 in the days leading up to the official event.

Drupal Dev Days 2014 will take place from 24th to 30th March at the IH Event Centre in Szeged, the Hungarian city that hosted the legendary 2008 Drupal Con. Everybody I speak to who was there has fantastic memories of this amazing event. So in 2014 let’s revive that spirit! Drupal 8 will be in a critical phase and we should use the opportunity to port as many modules as we can. Judging by the pictures and videos from Drupal Con 2008, there’s a lot of fun to be had in Szeged, known as the “city of sunshine”. Alongside the sessions and sprinting, there is bound to be plenty of entertainment - such as the hurdy-gurdy performance of the Drupal song - and socialising. To get an impression of what Szeged hast to offer, take a look at the photos from the last event

It's been a while since I visited the Symfony Summit in Cologne in the beginning of July. I had two days of training there, one of which was on the topic of Object-Oriented Design. All other participants used Symfony on a daily basis, but none of them had worked with Drupal before, at least not in-depth. So, as a Drupal 8 core developer, I had a unique perspective on the presented topics. There were three things in particular that stood out to me in the training, and I'd like to share them with you as part of this mini-series. The first post was about Interfaces vs. Abstract Classes and the second post about Being Static vs. Being Called Static.

I was at the Fox Valley, Illinois USA meetup that dicussed compass. Of course, I wanted to try it for real... and on Drupal 8. Here is what I did.

This article is intended to be a very basic step-by-step tutorial on how to set up Drupal within AWS Elastic Beanstalk, an Amazon Web Platform as a service (PaaS) solution. The article does not go into detail about long-term experiences of hosting or working with AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Drupal, maybe a future article will cover this interesting subject. You will need an Amazon AWS Account to proceed with this tutorial, the account registration process should be self-explanatory enough, just follow the instructions.

32 days to go until DrupalCon Prague. And... we need 25 more mentors. Can you mentor? Maybe. If you have experience working in the issue queue, understand how d.o works, and can support people as you find answers to their questions together, then you can mentor. Even our experienced mentors do not know all the answers, but we know how to start looking for the answers. Sign up to mentor!

Since we discovered Drupal, our content management system of choice, we've never looked back. We've built upon our business, grown our team (19 and counting!), and are involved in some pretty impressive projects including some of Germany's most important publishers. Drupal has taken us across continents, put us in touch with some amazing people who share our enthusiasm for Drupal and open source, and taught us so much. The Drupal community is more than a bunch of nerds building a big piece of software: it's a source of help and assistance, inspiration, ideas, friendship and fun.
