Drupal Camp Northern Lights (Part 3)

Body: 

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)

Body: 

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.

So, when we left you in part one, we were exploring the beautiful Golden Circle in Iceland.

We did, indeed, feel like true explorers.

Drupal Camp Northern Lights (Part 1)

Body: 

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. "Surrounded by
water" as the song says. The water comes down from above as well. Very, very
frequently.

Girls Day 2015 bei erdfisch

Body: 

Der 23. April war bei uns im erdfisch HQ ein besonderer Tag - im Rahmen des Girls Day 2015 durften wir die zwei neuen Mitarbeiterinnen Svenja & Katharina für den Tag begrüßen.

Worum geht es...?

DerGirls Day findet bundesweit einmal in Jahr statt. Die Mädchen lernen dort Ausbildungsberufe kennen, in denen Frauen bisher eher selten vertreten sind.
erdfisch hat dieses Jahr erstmalig an diesem Mädchen-Zukunftstag teilgenommen. Entsprechend groß war die Vorfreude, aber auch die Aufregung über das, was uns erwartet.

Drupal Dev Days 2014 in Szeged

Body: 

Greetings from Drupal Dev Days 2014 in Szeged!

I'm Michael Lenahan, a developer with erdfisch from beautiful Heidelberg, Germany.

Szeged is a university city with a great Drupal community, largely a result of the Drupalcon which took place here in 2008.

Dev Days is happening in a conference centre which is strategically located between the Novotel and the Salami Museum. We've got to make it there for a visit before the week is over!
