I started working with Drupal four years ago in a support role to the University of Edinburgh Drupal 7 CMS. More recently I've started getting involved in site building, coding and contributing to modules. I have attended 3 DrupalCons and love the community spirit.

Consultant

I am glad to be part of the DrupalEurope team, helping to organize the publishing / media vertical. This is in exiting times, times of crisis and promises at the same time. A chance that publishers start to think about cooperation, when it comes to technology, instead of having big players like Google, Facebook, Twitter, ebay, etc. shaping the landscape of technology for publishing and advertising. This is right where I want to be :)

After being Lead of the Dutch Drupal Jam for the last 2 years I am looking forward to help organizing an international Drupal event.
I am a project manager and coordinate the development of great Drupal sites for the last 10 years, starting out with a nice D5 site in 2008:-) The last years my role changed into Scrum master or Product owner, depending on my assignment as a freelance project manager. 
But most of all, I love to work on Drupal projects with my Drupal colleagues.

The thought of not meeting the Drupal community at a large European event in 2018 made me feel quite sad. Through the hard work and dedication of the Drupal Europe Team, I am looking forward to an amazing community driven event which has never been delivered on this scale before.

I love attending conferences like Drupal Europe, they're at the core of what makes the Drupal community great. I particularly enjoy having conversations with Drupalers from around the world. I always learn so much from the “hallway track”.

Worked 25+ years implementing newspaper systems. Started with print publishing evolved through print & web to web publishing first. Had an "awaking" moment for open source at Drupal Camp Essen in 2015, triggered by the openness and learning environment of the community. Understood the power of collaboration and that publishers should work in close cooperation for success in web publishing. See Open Source as the best answer to the publisher crisis and Drupal becoming the leading open CMS for publisher.

Respect to the very dedicated team of people who worked to make Drupal Europe happen this year! This is a very special event because a determined group of volunteers came together to make sure it would take place. I'm looking forward to it, because it's going to be a great celebration of what our community is capable of.

This will be my first International Drupal conference and I am so excited to meet the community. I've never been to a Drupal Con! I have helped arrange a Drupal Camp in Cape Town the last few years, and that was loads of fun, so I'm sure this is going to be amazing.

I am most excited about attending a volunteer-lead Drupal conference - can't wait to see and hear how it all comes together and what everyone thinks!

Drupal Europe is going to be a very special experience because it's a fresh start. We have such deep knowledge in the Drupal community from years of experience in a wide variety of contexts, and all of that is really coming together here. There will always be room for improvements and iterations and it's so important to check in to determine what's really working, what's not, and dedicate the time and energy to making changes. I'm looking forward to seeing how Drupal Europe comes together and then to think about the *next one!

Going to events like Drupal Europe has been an eye-opening experience and really propelled my understanding of Drupal. Drupal is made up of people and getting to know the people behind the software has made everything greater throughout the year, it's meant chatting online is easier, going through the issue queues easier but also I've met some amazing people who have become pretty great friends over the years.

3 years ago I succeeded in convincing the stakeholders that Drupal 8 is the best choice for a new CMS and Web Application Framework at Heidelberg University. Currently our team together with external Drupal shops is implementing an inhouse hosting infrastructure and migrating more than 100 Websites to Drupal. Having visited a number of DrupalCons and DrupalCamps in the last years i want to contribute actively with volunteering for Drupal Europe now.

Attending Drupal Europe is the best way to get in touch with the Drupal Community. Hear the latest info, talk to key players and last but not least, get involved.
