The theme this year at BADCamp was the greatest show on Earth: a circus full of fun.
Thanks to everyone who joined us for our DevOps After Dark happy hour on Thursday evening! It was an amazing event; We were pleased to provide a space for everyone to spread out and have longer conversations with a great group of agency and camp folks.

Panel: Status Update of DevOps Tools for Drupal
The DevOps Summit was fantastic, the audience participated in lots of good conversation, and Kubernetes stole the day! We were pleased to hear a lot of people are thinking about it, especially with regard to hosting providers.
We recently gathered our thoughts around DevOps. If you want to talk more about your organization’s dev-to-deploy workflow and tooling, contact us to find out about our DevOps consulting. We’d love to help.
Monica’s session: End to End Automated Testing with DDEV
Our QA Engineer, Monica Friend, gave a session on how to write and run end-to-end automated tests using Cucumber and Selenium as part of the DevOps summit. Afterward, for a breakout session, she worked with folks showing how to run Drupal’s automated test suites using DDEV. This was her first Drupal event, as she said:
I was pretty blown away by the event! There was such a strong sense of comradery between all the attendees, it felt more like a group of friends came together to just hang out and talk about something they love. I love talking about my craft and it was so fulfilling to educate and discuss testing with such a diverse crowd!

Kevin’s session: Open Source Engagement to Empower Business
Kevin also talked about applying open source concepts to any organization. Afterward, he said, “the session was super fun, I had a blast, really engaged with the people who were there, and had a lot of active participation in the Q&A portion.” See the session recording here.
Mike Anello of Drupal Easy gave a session on Upgrading your local development environment with DDEV. The workshop included hands-on exercises for installing DDEV and the basics of getting both new sites and existing sites up-and-running. Want to try it? Sign up for the live online course. Next date, Nov 14!
Taking the show on the road
As always, it was inspiring to connect and reconnect with Drupal community members to hear what everyone has been up to. Thanks to everyone we chatted with and we’ll see you again soon!
