Drupalcon mentored core sprint - part 2 - your experience as a sprinter


Hello! You've arrived at part 2 of a series of 3 blog posts about the Mentored Core Sprint, which traditionally takes place every Friday at Drupalcon.

If you haven't already, please go back and read part 1.

Drupalcon mentored core sprint - get that Friday feeling!


This is the first in a series of blog posts on a subject I'm very passionate about. So much so, that it's hard to put down in words the way I feel about it. That subject is the Friday Mentored Core Sprint at Drupalcon.

This is the first post a three-part blog post series:

Girls Day 2017 at erdfisch


Every year here in Germany we have Girls' Day. This is a day in which girls can see what it is like working in male-dominated industries (there is an equivalent Boys' Day as well).

We at erdfisch have been taking part in Girls' Day since 2015, so this was our third year. We had the privilege of welcoming Anna, Bianca and Franzi into our office in Heidelberg.

Drupal Camp Northern Lights (Part 3)


This has, for reasons we are not quite sure of, ended up being a three-part blog post.

Part 1 is here and part 2 is here.

So, where we left off was at the tomato farm, where it felt like being in a future farm in outer space.

But the tomato farm is not only that. It is a pony (sorry, "Icelandic horse") farm as well!

Drupal Camp Northern Lights (Part 2)


Thanks for sticking around. There will be more than just photos of us goofing around in Iceland, I promise.

For stuff about the actual Drupal Camp, please jump to the end of part three.

We did, indeed, feel like true explorers.

Drupal Camp Northern Lights (Part 1)


tl;dr: Drupal Camp Northern Lights was even better than the actual Northern Lights.

This was the best Drupal event I have ever attended. So, even though it is two months late, it deserves a blog post.

95 very, very lucky people attended.

Instead of a camp t-shirt, the organizers gave us some memories we will always live with.

Drupalcon Dublin: Come to the island and get off the island

Getting off the island

As a back-end developer, one of the surprising and fun things about this Drupalcon is how much I have learned about front-end and theming in Drupal. This has been my way of "getting off the island" and learning about things a little outside my normal comfort-zone.

Arriving in Dublin

Drupalcon Dublin is starting this week. Particularly exciting one for me since
I went to university here about a million years ago (a.k.a. the early nineties).

This was another era entirely, before the internet. I think the arrival of the
internet changed Ireland even more than most other countries. It is mainly
rural, and stuck on the western edge of Europe on the Atlantic. "Ireland surrounded by
water" as the song says. The water comes down from above as well. Very, very
