Last September Dropsolid sponsored and attended Drupal Europe. Compared to the Northern America’s conferences, getting Europeans to move to another location is challenging. Certainly when there are many conferences of such high quality that compete such as Drupalcamps, Drupal Dev Days, Frontend United, Drupalaton, Drupaljam, Drupal Business Days. I’m happy for the team they succeeded in making Drupal Europe profitable, this is a huge accomplishment and it also sends a strong signal to the market!

At Dropsolid, we spend a lot of time to build your web experiences. Back in the day we decided to do this in Drupal. 

At the time that we decided this, the best CMS to build these digital experiences was Drupal 7 by far. The system had everything you could dream of to develop and deploy websites which were both powerful and flexible. However, time and technology are moving on and the users of websites have more demands today than they used to have.

Recently, I was invited to go on the Modern CTO podcast as a guest. We talked about developer culture, how to measure efficiency and velocity and, more importantly, how you can make the teams as independent as possible without losing that team and company feeling.

We all use searches multiple times a day without ever giving them a second thought. Browsing a webshop to find that one particular product, searching through forums to find a solution to your specific problem, or filtering stores based on your location to find the closest one, etc.

All of these examples require the same thing: content that is indexed in such a way that it can be filtered. In general, this is quite easy to set up: all you need is a database and a query to get you started.

Our team had been using Varnish a long time for our Dropsolid Drupal 7 project, and we thought the time had come to get it working for Drupal 8 as well. That is why our CTO, Nick Veenhof, organized a meetup about Caching & Purging in Drupal 8. Niels van Mourik gave an elaborate presentation about the Purge module and how it works.
