As a Drupal solution provider, our passion for contributing to Drupal community started from Drupal Camp Brighton 2015, which continues and has brought us today attending Drupal Camp Frankfurt 2017 as well. Frankfurt is one of the world’s leading financial center with historic, ethnic and cultural diversity like the Paulskirche, the Römer, and the “Museumsufer”, captivating skyline, big fair, traditional restaurants and the list is endless.
Drupal Camp Frankfurt 2017 took place at University of Frankfurt, Bockenheim on 22nd and 23rd April 2017, owing to its large campus the sessions and sprints were conducted with utmost ease. Germany Drupal Community was very welcoming and their effort was commendable to promote Drupal in the German market. It was a camp by the community for the community so that beginners can learn and develop an insight into Drupal technology and experience the depth of the community.
Drupal Camp Frankfurt was spread over two days with interesting sessions, sprints, social gathering, and discussions to exchange knowledge and experiences of the community members. We were more excited as we could contribute by conducting a session on “Women in Tech/Drupal” by #dcffm17 speaker Mr. Ashish Jain.
On 22nd April, the day started with a welcome session followed by a keynote by Antje Lorch on “Why you will be contributing to Drupal”, which cleared everyone’s thoughts about giving back to the community as much as they take advantages. This was followed by various sessions, out of which some interesting topics were Media & Drupal – Modules and Workflows for Publishers, deGov - Building a Distribution based on Acquia Lightning and Get the most out of display mode. And the day ended with an open-ended session and at last with an incredible social night at the restaurant and bar Depot 1899, which helped us know each-each other beyond Drupal.
The second day kick started fresh with interesting sessions and various discussions with the community members that even included newbies, who had good knowledge and that created a great atmosphere. After the lunch break, Mr. Ashish Jain presented a session on “Women in Tech/Drupal” in which he highlighted the position women have achieved, global stats about women’s position in the tech world and about the position of women in AddWeb Solution that has lead to change in work environment and increase productivity. All the attendees of the session appreciated our attempt for #genderdiversity.
On the whole, it was a great learning experience and it's always a delight to meet the community members anytime to boost up the Drupal quotient and share personal experiences. The event was memorable and a big thank you to the organizers, sponsors, volunteers and all community members for such a great event.

AddWeb Solution can’t wait for the next community meeting, so as to contribute even more to the Drupal community and show the love for Drupal!!
