Last week I was honored with the opportunity to participate in DrupalCamp Singapore 2018 as their Keynote. I want to extend a big thank you to the organization of the Singaporean community lead by Solihin Jinata a.k.a. SJ from Pixel Onion for this great event.
My Keynote wasn't about how fantastic Drupal is, actually it was more about how awesome Drupal is to let us have the opportunities to pursue other technologies in our path as professional or companies and make those technologies work together or in parallel. You can download the slides here, and a video will be available soon.
Sessions that I liked
There were a plethora of sessions during Drupal Camp, but here's the ones that I loved.
- Decoupling Drupal with GraphQL by Pavlos Daniel
- A quick guide to freedom and travels for developers by Luc Bezier
- Reaching out to the Physical - Drupal 8 and openHAB by Mark Corben
Local vs. Regional event
DrupalCamp Singapore was promoted as a local but the truth is that it was more a regional event, because in addition to the local community we had speakers and attendees from [sorted North to South, East to West] Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Cyprus, France and Colombia (me).
Also, there was a BoF about how the APAC Drupal community wants to create an event to promote Drupal in the area. Suggested an event that moves across different countries from year to year. It seems like the first one is going to happen in Indonesia city (TBD), definitely an event to join, stay tune!
My balance of this DrupalCamp is positive, and I'm looking forward to attending the next APAC community even, where we can get more countries, cultures and languages represented.
