We are approaching the end of the year, and at 1xINTERNET we are getting ready to celebrate at DrupalCon Europe 2020. Since DrupalCon Amsterdam last year, lots of things have happened in the world and virtual conferences are becoming the new normality. We are now preparing for this virtual event and getting excited about meeting our Drupal friends from all over Europe and possibly the rest of the world during the week 8-11th of December.
This year 1xINTERNET is a proud Platinum sponsor of the event. We have written about it before how important it is for us to be “Makers” in the Drupal ecosystem. In all of our internal work at the company we make sure everyone is encouraged to contribute to Drupal in one way or another and be part of the community. During the conference we will be active in our booth and we hope to get as many guests as possible to swing by and say hi! Our focus will be on talking and sharing with other conference guests, so you will be able to meet big part of our team to have a chat if you fancy. Meet our founders, devops teams and project managers to discuss anything you can think of. During every break of the event we will be available for a chat, so make sure you follow us on Twitter as we will be tweeting our schedule as we go along. We also might have some treats for our visitors so stay tuned!
Our speakers at the conference
The conference schedule is very promising and we are pretty sure everyone will find something every day to get inspired and entertained. 119 sessions in five tracks are included in the ticket so make sure you grab yours here if you have not done so already.
Hristo Chonov - Autosave and Concurrent editing in Drupal
Wednesday 9th of December at 9:50-10:10 UTC in Darmstadt Room
Hristo Chonov is one of our Software developers. In his talk Autosave and Concurrent editing (conflict resolution) in Drupal 8/9 Hristo will introduce two modules enhancing the editorial experience in Drupal 8/9: Autosave Form and Conflict.
Autosave ensures that content changes will not be lost if a sudden power outage or network disruption occurs. The current state of each entity form is continuously autosaved, so that the user is able to always resume from the last autosaved state. The concurrent editing feature provided by the conflict module allows for the simultaneous editing of the same content by multiple users. Whenever possible automatic merges are performed. When conflicts occur the user is provided with a visual tool for resolving them.
During his talk he will look at the state of the modules and what there is to come.
Adam Juran - Content Architecture using Design Pattern
Wednesday 9th of December at 10:30-11:1 UTC in Darmstadt Room
Adam Juran is one of our Frontend developers and in his talk Content Architecture using Design Pattern he is starting with a short overview and examples of Atomic Design. He will examine several types of components and discuss their potential frontend behaviours, content models, and editorial experiences. Adam will demonstrate how we integrate our components by mapping Drupal templates to our design patterns. Finally he will show how we can optimize the authoring experience based on both the content architecture and the design system.
This session is targeted at solution architects, designers, frontend developers, Drupal site-builders and Drupal site owners. Attendees will learn how web design and content architecture can work together using Drupal, and will take away methodologies and practices that they can apply to their own design and development workflows.
Baddý Sonja Breidert - First steps to successful content strategy
Wednesday 9th of December at 15:30-17:10 UTC in Prague Room
Baddý Sonja Breidert our CEO will host a two hours workshop about the First steps to successful content strategy. Baddy will explain how important it is that every web project has a content strategy with clear goals, a great UX/design, and a thoughtfully modeled information architecture that is implemented in a CMS system. All of these tasks are done by different people: Content strategists, analytics experts, UX- and graphic designers, accessibility experts, solution architects, and software developers.
The challenge here is to create a mutual understanding of all stakeholders and an easy to understand workflow for people to collaborate. At 1xINTERNET the company has developed an intuitive model for the workflow that we apply in all web projects in this workshop, Baddý will go over each step and explain the benefit it adds to every project.
