Growing community in Moldova

Drupal - Tue, 06/20/2017 - 08:03

This guest blog post is from Drupal Moldova's Association (not affiliated with Drupal Association). Get a glimpse of what is happening in Moldova's community and how you can get involved.

Drupal Moldova Association’s mission is to promote Drupal CMS and Open Source technologies in Moldova, and to grow and sustain the local community by organising Events, Camps, Schools, Drupal meetups and various Drupal and Open Source related trainings, and by establishing partnerships with Companies, the Government, and NGO’s.

Come and share your expertise in Moldova at our events! We're looking for international speakers to speak about Drupal and open source.

Among DMA’s (short for Drupal Moldova Association) numerous commitments, the following are of special importance:

  • to gather the community around Drupal and Open Source technologies;

  • to train students and professionals who want to learn and work with Drupal;

  • to organise events to keep the community engaged and motivated to improve, learn, and share experience;

  • to make sure Drupal is accessible to everyone by offering scholarships to those who can't afford our programs;

  • to elaborate a well defined program that helps students learn Drupal, acquire enough knowledge to get accepted for internships by IT companies, and be able to build Drupal powered websites;  

  • to assist new IT companies in establishing a local office, promote themselves, collaborate with other companies, and connect with the local Drupal community by giving them the opportunity to support our projects.

Over the last 5 years, we have been dedicated to achieving our goals! DMA have organized over 20 projects and events, including Drupal Global Training Days, Drupal Schools, and the regional DrupalCamp -- Moldcamp. Our projects have gathered over 700 local and international participants and speakers, and more than 15 International Companies that have supported us during these years (FFW, Adyax, IP Group, Intellix, Endava and many others).

Moldova is rich in great developers and people driven to take initiative and to grow and place the country on the world map. We are aiming to go beyond our limits and have a bigger impact in the year (‘17-’18), therefore we have created a yearly plan that contains projects similar to those we have done in the past years, as well as new and exciting ones:

  • Drupal School (3 step program), starting with Drupal School 8 plus PHP (step 1):  Drupal School is an educational program - split into 2 months, 25 courses of different levels (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).Drupal School aims to introduce people to Drupal 8 and PHP, and help them become Drupal professionals;

  • Moldcamp 2017: Sep - Oct 2017. A regional DrupalCamp that gathers around 150 Drupal professionals, enthusiasts, beginners and any-Drupal-related-folk in one place for knowledge-sharing, presentations, networking, etc. We will announce the event soon and allow speaker registration. Please follow us and don’t miss out on the opportunity;

  • Drupal Global Training Day: Dec 1-2. A one-day workshop that has the purpose of introducing people to Drupal, both code and community.

  • Drupal Meetups: These are organized each month and they allow our community to be active and share knowledge.

  • Tech Pizza: - Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec. A bi-monthly event, where the ICT community can gather in a casual and an informal environment around a pizza and  soda and discuss the latest IT trends and news. The core of this event is a speaker / invitee from abroad with a domain of expertise;

  • Moldova Open Source Conference: March 2018. It is a regional conference for over 200 participants that aims to gather all the Open Source Communities (Wordpress, Laravel, Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, etc.) under one roof, where they will attend sessions that enhance the expertise of existing experts in various Open Source technologies and allow them to mix their technologies into new ideas.

The proposed program “Drupal and Open Source in Moldova 2017 - 2018” is made possible through the support of USAID and the Swedish Government. Thanks to these organizations we can focus on the quality of our projects make sure they happen as planned. Also, we have a very important partnership with Tekwill / Tekwill Academy, which helps us even more in our quests.

We start with School of Drupal 8 plus PHP program, which will be held on 19th of June 2017. So far we have 3 sponsors--IPGroup, Adyax and Intellix--and two trainers.

We, The DMA, believe in pushing the limits! Our long term goal is to build and maintain big an active Open Source community by attracting more local and International participants to our Projects and Events, and continuously improve our sessions. This will make our presence felt in the global Drupal and Open Source communities and markets. Find us on Twitter @drupalmoldova, or on our Facebook page. If you are interested in speaking in Moldova, contact us at info@drupalmoldova.org.

DrupalCon Vienna t-shirts are back! - but there’s a catch.

Drupal - Fri, 06/02/2017 - 07:42

Remember how we are making changes to DrupalCon Europe? These were hard decisions and some things we love we found just weren’t financially viable. Like free t-shirts. But one thing we heard a lot was “please don’t take away the t-shirts!”  

We heard you. And while it doesn’t make financial sense to give free t-shirts to all attendees, we still want to be able to continue to offer them. So we’ve come up with a plan.   

At DrupalCon Vienna, t-shirts will be offered to the following groups:

  • Individual Drupal Association members who register for DrupalCon Vienna between 5 - 16 June 2017. You must register in this two week window AND be an individual member of the Drupal Association.

  • Volunteers who work at least four (4) hours onsite in Vienna 26 - 29 September. You must check the volunteer box during registration and must show up on site to volunteer for four (4) hours or until released by event staff.

  • Volunteers as part of the DrupalCon Program Team

  • Sprint Mentors

The fine print FAQ

I’m already a member, how do I make sure that I'll get a shirt?

If you are already an individual member, you get a t-shirt! BUT you MUST register in the first two weeks of ticket sales. Registrations after 16 June will not receive a t-shirt, member or not.

I’m not a member, can I do that during registration and still get a shirt?

Yes. If you are not a member you can become an individual member during your conference registration. You will be presented with a page during check-out that gives you the option to become a member.

I already registered but JUST saw this post! What do I do?

If you are a true early bird and register in the two weeks, but somehow missed this news post until after registering - that’s ok. As long as you become a member before the end of 16 June and you’ll still get a t-shirt.

The registration didn’t say anything about t-shirts or ask for my t-shirt size? What’s up?

After the 16 June cut-off date, eligible registrants will receive an email confirming their t-shirt along with a link to select their t-shirt size.

You got a session selected? Great!

We’ll refund your registration amount (but not your membership) and you get to keep the t-shirt. Our regular no-refund policy applies to all other sales.

You’re part of an organization that is buying a bulk amount of tickets for employees? Lucky you.

Your organization should provide you with an individual redemption code. You’ll need to redeem your individual registration before 16 June AND also be an individual member of the Drupal Association in order to get a t-shirt.
