Last week the Annertech team headed to Vienna for a week of Drupal learning and sharing. With thirteen different tracks and various summits, there was a lot of great sessions to choose from. We were also privileged and honoured to have the opportunity to present five sessions ourselves, and of course, we once again played host to the Drupal Trivia Night.
On Friday, all the accepted sessions for DrupalCon Vienna were announced, and we are delighted to report that, once again, 5 of our 8 session proposals were accepted! With Acquia and Pantheon being the only companies receiving more acceptances, we are extremely proud of our achievement. It also means that given our size, Annertech has more speakers, per staff member, than any other agency in the world.
It is hard to describe my excitement at DrupalCon Dublin, my first DrupalCon indeed. After a year of preparations by the local Irish community it was hard to believe that it was actually happening.
I think I was pretty well prepared and knew what to expect. A couple of blogs from fellow Annertechies had helped to plan it, especially Mark's Get the Most out of DrupalCon Dublin.
This year's DrupalCon, in my home town of Dublin, was a brand new experience for me. As a seasoned DrupalCon Veteran, (my first DrupalCon was in Paris in 2009), I thought I knew the ropes - how to choose sessions, what to expect, how to party like a bad-ass... I thought I knew what I would get out of it. Man, was I wrong.
