Drupaldelphia 2019

Drupaldelphia is an annual, all-day conference that focuses on the open-source content management platform, Drupal. You'll get to learn from individuals in the Drupal community and share ideas and experiences with each other.

This year, our CTO, Jody Hamilton will be co-hosting a session with our friends from Pantheon and Lando called, "A Lando to Probo to Pantheon Workflow." This session will show you how Lando, Probo, and Pantheon are used to handle local development, review, testing, deployment, and hosting. 

Jody will also be leading a session called, "Semantic Site Building" which will take you back to the basic definitions in the Drupal vocabulary to help you think about the art of designing a Drupal data structure and interface.

Additionally, our Senior Systems Engineer, Jason Moore, will be hosting a session called, "DevOps for Drupal and Other Web Applications." This session will explore DevOps techniques, tools, and best practices for Drupal and other web applications.
