Vienna calling!

Published 2017-09-20 by Jochen Lillich

Final preparations for DrupalCon Vienna are underway, and of course freistilbox is going to take part in Europe’s biggest Drupal conference!

Vienna might very well be the last European DrupalCon because the Drupal Association came to the conclusion that major changes are required to return the conference to a successful path, from both a financial and community management perspective. There will be interesting discussions at and after DrupalCon for sure!

But next week, we’ll still party like it’s 1999! Each day will be packed with presentations, code sprints and Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions. I myself am going to venture out of my comfort zone and this time give a talk not in the familiar DevOps track but in the Project Management track! In “Lean Web Operations — Planning for the Unpredictable”, I’m going to describe the journey of our web operations team out of growing chaos to consistent progress. During the last 12 months, we’ve gained a tremendous amount of experience with planning, distributing, tracking and, most importantly, actually finishing our work. If you’d like to see how we turned the freistilbox ship around before it could hit the rocks, come to room “Schubert 3” on Wednesday at 15:45!

And if you’d like to chat about managed Drupal hosting or learn more about our ideas on Docker hosting, I’ll be happy to meet you somewhere around the venue!

You’ll find all the important details on my talk and how to get hold of me during the conference on our DrupalCon page. See you in Austria!
