And we for one, are very excited!

Not only are we proud sponsors of the event, we are very excited to announce that Hydrant Developer, Michael Trestianu, will be hosting a talk titled ‘A year working with Drupal’. Michael Joined Hydrant after graduating from University with a degree in computing and a masters in IT security. He has since worked on several large projects at Hydrant and will be sharing his experiences with the Drupal community.

Do stop by and chat to our team too. We will be available to talk about what we do and jobs we have available. There are some pretty ‘highly desirable’ goody bags up for grabs too, so make your way over pronto!

We’ll also be dropping into the sessions to learn about new developments, such as the planned release of Drupal 8. Hydrant has utilised Drupal from 2004 and we have worked with versions 4 up to 7, Drupal is a powerful content management which allows us to be able to effectively create complex, dynamic and robust web applications that solve our client’s problems efficiently, we hope that Drupal 8 will bring us more in line with current web frameworks, greater flexibility and allow us to work more intelligently.

Digital experts from around the world will descend on Drupal Camp North, hosted at the Sunderland Software Centre, to speak, share and sprint for three activity packed days:

  • 3 days of sessions, including Business Day
  • 5 days of code sprints sponsored by Orange Bus
  • 5 rooms including BoF and Video Room
  • DrupalCamp North BBQ and Drinks
