I have just returned from Drupal Developer Days (DDD) which was held in Milan, Italy this year. 400 people from around the world gathered for 6 days of working together, learning and talking about Drupal.
The event has been taking place since it started in Munich in 2010 since which time it has been held in Brussels, Barcelona, Dublin, Szeged, Montpelier. It now sits firmly on the annual calendar of events in Europe on a similar weight with the DrupalCons.
I was very glad to return as it was one of my favourite events during my trip to the 2014 edition held in Szeged, Hungary. I was sad to miss last year's DDD which took place in Montpelier, but getting married is a pretty good excuse :)
Now in its 4th consecutive year, Drupal Camp London is one of six annual camps in the UK and the 2nd largest in Europe with 600 attendees.
I was very fortunate to be able to attend all of the UK camps for the first time in 2015, which was very rewarding for me. It helped me with
- Growing my network in the community and better understanding how variety of different skillsets help us on projects
- Inspiration to learn new things including improving my knowledge of performance, scalability and front end development
- Seeing real life case studies and having the opportunity to ask questions to the teams behind them
Drupal can be difficult to learn without good resources or a helping hand. Here are a list of great resources that I have found useful while learning Drupal, including blogs and video tutorials. I hope you find them useful.
If you are a complete beginner, I recommend starting with this video Absolute Beginners Guide to Drupal
Last week we ran a course on Google Analytics for a range of participants from the social enterprise and charity sector.
