Drupal Cafe #16

Hello, our Drupal friends! We are happy to inform you that one more Drupal Cafe was held on that Saturday. It was already the 16th time when we made it.

On that Saturday morning a lot of experienced Drupal developers and newcomers gathered together in ADCI Events Hub. We felt delighted that all of them chose Drupal but not sleep.

That time we had decided to add a little bit of an interactivity and suggested voting and commenting all reports to our participants while their impressions were still fresh. A maximum score for a report was 5 points. And some reports had a 5 points rating but we’ll talk about this a little bit later.

At Drupal Cafe #16 more than 70 people were present. They listened to 5 excellent reports about Drupal, development, and IT company’s work.

In our program were such themes as:

  1. ADCI Solutions at DrupalCon Vienna
  2. Price of implementing the Headless Drupal approach
  3. How to render Vue.js applications on a server and what does it have to do with Drupal
  4. Drupal: evil within?
  5. 14 principles of Toyota for IT companies  

First speakers were Marina and Denis. They told about DrupalCon Vienna and their impression. Denis told about the latest news of the Drupal world and noted that Drupal has grown and has changed and, of course, it has gotten better since the previous version. The report was given 4.8 points.

The next speaker shared an engrossing business case: how to create a Headless Drupal app and which problems can appear in this work. He told about a project which was made with the help of React.js and Drupal. Experience of these web developers was given 4.9 points.

In one of the reports a topic “Vue.js and its rendering” was raised. Dima and Erlan told about methods and tools which can help you make this process qualitative, reliable, and fast. The report was quite voluminous, the guys told about problems with SPA and how to solve them, they also touched on the topic of rendering and various tools for carrying it out. The audience rated the report at 4.75.

At the end of the conference two reports took a maximum score.

Widespread errors of developers and their consequences were discussed in the report by Sergey. He spoke about bad code and showed examples to the participants. He also told why they appeared, who was blamed - Drupal or a web developer.

The last speaker at the conference was Serik Beisenov, a man who tried all jobs in an IT company - a sysadmin, a test engineer, an automatization engineer, and now he is a CEO, and he has learned everything about his work. He told us what principles made Toyota one of the leaders in the car market, and how to implement these principles into IT company's work.

We had been waiting for Drupal Cafe #16 for a long time, and now that it passed we can confidently say that it was not in vain. It was an interesting conference, full of quality reports, friendly atmosphere. It was nice to learn that Drupal Cafe has regular listeners who attended all of 16 events. Now we are going to prepare for the next conference, and you can look at the photos that you will find in the gallery below.
