DrupalCon 2022, hello Prague!! Finally a physical edition again.

DrupalCon, something we’re looking forward to every single year! Not a coincidence that we’re proud to be a Diamond Sponsor for the fourth time in a row. After 2 years, a physical edition again, and we're looking forward to it! There's a lot happening at our booth this year: join a virtual reality competition, follow a live demo of Dropsolid Experience Cloud, meet some of our digital experts... 

We’re already looking forward to listening about what’s going on in the community, learning a lot from our peers, and connecting with clients, partners, and other Drupal enthusiasts. 

Just like other years, we’re sharing our knowledge in the marketing and tech tracks. Join us for a session? We’ve listed them below:

The Soudal Story: An Entire Project Lifecycle Case Study of a Global Multi-Market Platform

  • Who: Wouter De Bruycker & Filipe Pereira
  • What: Soudal.com is a project 5 years in the making, spanning 20+ countries, 10+ languages, and managing over 12.000 product variations and 100.000 website sessions per month.
    What started off initially as a strategic exercise, went over to the development of the Drupal 8 platform and evolved into continuous website improvements and training of the international marketing team of Soudal, resulting in a 400% increase in organic traffic. Oh, and there’s a Drupal 9 upgrade somewhere in there as well.
    The Soudal story is a story of ups and downs, challenges, victories, and above all: a great partnership between a client and an agency. In this session, we will talk about the entire project lifecycle: from strategy and development all the way over to maintenance, project management, and training.
    We will share practical insights about:
    • The benefits of open communication
    • How to listen and understand the customers’ needs
    • Project challenges (including launching a website in China)
    • Working together towards a common goal
    • How we work as a company
    • Adapting and improving based on valuable customer feedback
    • How we are able to quickly spin up a new market website (we’ll share some technical details for our fellow developers out there)
    • ... and much more
      Get ready for a 45-minute session loaded with practical project details you can use to improve your own company, team, workflow, or just to be inspired! Something you simply can’t find on Google.
  • When: Tuesday, September 20th, 2022 | 15:00 - 15:45 UTC
  • Where: Room D7

Connecting the human dots in a digital world - best practices for post-Corona working

  • Who: Inez Declercq & Sara Fiems 
  • What: The corona pandemic made us contact our customers and/or prospects more digitally (e.g. Sending an email, schedule a videocall, send a LinkedIn message instead of actually going to the customers offices...).
    But soon I ran into a concern, how do I make sure I don't lose the personal connection with my customers/prospects and keep my communication humane? I've talked to some fellow business employees and did some trial and error to connect the human dots into the digital world. This session will provide some concrete examples about human connection in the digital world and finding the right dots in a post-corona working environment.
  • When: Wednesday, September 21th, 2022 | 15:25 - 15:45 UTC
  • Where: Room D4 Pantheon

Open Personalization with Apache Unomi & Mautic workshop

  • Who: Frederik Wouters & Wesley De Vrient
  • What: Personalization is a hot topic, but in the era of consent, privacy and GDPR it may seem it is no longer acceptable to do any form of personalization. Personalization doesn't necessarily have to be this evil non-transparent tracker without any advantage to you as an end-user.
    Personalization is a proven easy of increasing engagement when done right. The user feels understood, it leads to higher conversion but it has to be done in all trust and consent. In the recent years many software companies were created to deliver these highly contextualised experiences using personalisation but none of them really delivered the necessary trust so that you could use the technology in the same way you are using Drupal. In the landscape of personalisation there is a new open source player in town and this is Apache Unomi & N8N as integration hub.
    We will interactively explain, by means of exercises, how Drupal, Mautic, Apache Unomi & N8N can be seen as a Digital Experience Platform without lock-in, without handing over your data to a company with other interests to this data.
    The workshop will delve technically deeper in what Apache Unomi is, how it can be used and how personalised experiences can be delivered in way, compliant with the GDPR rulings and with respect to users trust.
  • When: Donderdag 22 september 2022 | 10:30- 11:15 UTC
  • Where: Room D3 Platform.sh
