Events we organise
For another year running, we were proud to be on the organising committee to assist in putting on an even bigger and better DrupalCamp London in 2015. We were blessed to work with many of the same people as the past couple of years and in doing so managed to increase the event to over 650 attendees from all over the globe. Our very own Ben Wilding was honoured to host the CXO day and introduce the two main conference days. Much fun was had by all and we look forward to DCL 2016.
We have been the proud hosts and sponsors of the largest Drupal meetup group in the UK for over five years. Each month around 75 people from all disciplines including developers, PMs and content managers get together to have a drink and talk all things Drupal, web and tech in a friendly, relaxed environment.
Each month we host an evening of short Drupal talks at London South Bank University where the diverse Drupal community can come together in a central London location and learn Drupal from each other. We have talks from many high-profile Drupalers working on a range of exciting projects. The evening is usually rounded off in the pub for more networking and Drupal chat.
Events we sponsor
We are excited to be Gold Sponsors and to join Bristol's Drupal community for three days of exciting exploration of the opportunities and benefits of Drupal! We will have three of our team members present their talks at the DrupalCamp Bristol:
- Ben will present a talk on Does your customer's business have a business and digital strategy? Wait...what's the difference?
- Eric on Drupal 8 and the Symfony EventDispatcher
- and Sam on Styleguide-driven development
DrupalCamp is an event that brings together individuals who use, develop, design and support the Drupal platform. We were excited to be Gold Sponsors and to have four of our team members present their talks at the DrupalCamp Brighton:
- Ben presented a talk on Does your customer's business have a business and digital strategy? Wait...what's the difference?
- Laura presented a talk on Winning your clients' trust with Agile project management
- Tassos presented a talk on Using the Tour API in Drupal 8
- Eric presented a talk on Drupal 8 and the Symfony EventDispatcher
DrupalCamp London featured dozens of curated sessions and panels from some of the most influential people and brightest minds within the Drupal community and beyond, and of course we wouldn't miss this for the world. Three of our colleagues presented their talks:
- Brendan presented a talk on An automation framework built around Behat for testing Drupal sites
- Eric presented a talk on Drupal 8 and the Symfony EventDispatcher
- Laura presented a talk on Successful Agile project management: winning your clients' trust
- Tassos presented a talk on Create rich web stories with Drupal 8 and paragraphs
Our more recent event as Gold Sponsors, DrupalCamp Brighton has been held for the very first time in Bristol this year; thanks to the Drupal Bristol community and the dedication of its committee members and organisational sponsors. We'll be looking forward to next year at DrupalCamp Bristol 2016!
DrupalCamp London is the second major event that we have participated as Gold Sponsors this year. Started in 2013, DrupalCamp London has gone from strength to strength. This year its focus is on the release of Drupal 8 and the viable use of it for projects.
DrupalCamp is an event that brings together individuals who use, develop, design and support the Drupal platform. We were excited to be speakers and Gold Sponsors at the DrupalCamp Brighton.
For another year running, we were proud to be on the organising committee to assist in putting on an even bigger and better Drupalcamp London in 2014. We were blessed to work with many of the same people as 2013 and in doing so managed to increase the event to over 650 attendees from all over the globe. Our very own Ben Wilding was honoured to host the CXO day and introduce the two main conference days. Much fun was had by all and we look forward to DCL 2015.
Our very own Peter Arato is from the lovely Hungary and asked if we'd kindly sponsor the DrupalCamp Szeged 2014 event, which we were more than happy to do. Some fantastic Sprints took place that really helped progress critical issues with Drupal 8, many interesting and educational talks took place and of course a lot of fun was had by all.
In addition to being on the organising committee, we were very honoured to be silver sponsors for DrupalCamp London 2013 and to help make the first event a huge success with over 400 attendees taking part over the course of three days.
We were privileged to be bronze sponsors of Frontend United 2013, the yearly conference for Drupal-based frontend developers, designers and themers. The conference’s remit is to bring together local Drupal communities and to unite the broader European community and we’re very proud to be a part of that.
We were proud to sponsor DrupalCon London 2011, a five-day event held in London for the Drupal community to share knowledge, discuss best practices and get to know each other.
Other things we do
We have been supporting graduates moving into the workplace since 2010. This has helped not only us but the individuals and the Drupal community as there is always a need for great new development talent. Our most recent intern Navdeep Dhuti is an outstanding student who just completed his first year of BSc (Hons) Information Technology course at London South Bank University. Nav is getting training in Drupal development and getting introduced to the tools and practices being used at Cameron and Wilding. In return Nav has access to the priceless expertise of the team who support him on the development of his personal app development project.
We believe in promoting Drupal at a grassroots level in order to encourage the next generation of Drupalers. We have held a free introduction to Drupal class for first year Computer Science students at London South Bank University. In addition to this, we'll be assisting an LSBU lecturer with the creation of a Drupal course. To learn more about our collaboration with London South Bank University visit the Cameron & Wilding, collaborating with LSBU students to help the Drupal community case study.
Twice a year we shut our office down to allow our team to give back to the Drupal ecosystem. This allows us to feed everything we've learned over the course of the past few months back into the community at large and is one of the reasons the Drupal community is so vibrant.
We’re enthusiastic about anything and everything Drupal and are passionate supporters of the community, which we've been an active part of since 2006. Among other things, we participate in annual 'Drupal give back' days, sponsor several Drupal events and organise a monthly Drupal Beer and Chat meetup. Visit our Cameron and Wilding profile on Drupal.org to learn more.
In 2012 we spoke at DrupalCamp Pakistan on both the development and the social side of Drupal. The event united Drupal developers, themers, users and enthusiasts from all over the globe.
We gain a lot of satisfaction and knowledge in speaking at DrupalCamps, conferences and events. DrupalCamp Oxford was one we were very proud to have taken part in and we look forward to future opportunities like this one.
Helping each other out is a central part of the Drupal ecosystem - the power of the community. This is most often considered from the code perspective but its equally true of Drupal agencies. For many years we've been attending the Drupal CXO days to share our business knowledge and to learn from others.
