weKnow gave me the opportunity to attend my first BADCamp as part of the team that represented the company at this awesome event.
First day I attended the Drupal Frontend Submit, a roundtable format that I had not experienced before. It was very rewarding to discuss my experience as a developer who has worked with accessibility guidelines, sharing the tools and strategies that I have used to implement such an important standard.
Lots of great sessions shared valuable knowledge that allowed me to leave BADCamp as a better developer!
My top picks:
- HOW TO KEEP DRUPAL RELEVANT IN THE GIT-BASED AND API-DRIVEN CMS ERA by @jmolivas
- BUILDING WEBSITES WITH REACT & GATSBY by @kylemathews
- DESIGNING FOR DRUPAL: TIPS & TRICKS FOR A CLEAN, USER-FRIENDLY WEBSITE by @GetRootid
- HOT DOG/NOT HOT DOG: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WITH DRUPAL by Rob Loach
- BEST PRACTICES: HOW WE RUN DECOUPLED WEBSITES WITH 110 MILLION HITS PER MONTH by @schnitzel
Without a doubt, the new kid on the block was Gatsby, a piece of technology that takes the development of sites to a new level.
In my opinion, and I may be a little biased here, one of the best talks of the camp was "How to keep Drupal relevant in the Git-based and API-driven CMS", given by Jesus Manuel Olivas. This session opened a great discussion about Drupal’s vision, touching base on how it can integrate to become a fundamental piece in the scheme of modern technologies and strategies in web development, allowing Drupal to focus on what it does best which is to manage content.
As a final note, I would like to highlight that the venue was great at UC Berkeley; awesome lounge area with coffee to keep us energized all day, pinball machines were a great surprise and a special mention for the waffles!
Thanks for everything, hope to return next year and this time proposing a talk and thus sharing my own knowledge and experience!
