Sessions

In sessions, we will share the latest and greatest in Drupal web development as well learn from real world implementation case studies. Workshops will enable you to grow your web development skills in a hands-on setting. Sprints will teach you how contributing to Drupal can teach you a lot while improving the system for everyone.

Swiss Splash Awards

As a highlight, the Swiss Splash Awards will determine the best Swiss Drupal web projects selected by an independent jury in 9 different categories. These projects will also participate in the global Splash Awards at DrupalCon Europe 2019.

In February 2017 the Drupal Mountain Camp in Davos was held for the first time. More than 120 experts from 17 countries came to the Swiss mountains and experienced a unique weekend. The event was a huge success with many highlights.

Keynotes

Both Laura Gaetano's (Travis Foundation) keynote about the open source community in general and Preston So's (Acquia) keynote about the future of Drupal with API first were well attended, very interesting and led to lively discussions.

Social Events

After the varied, interesting and intensive daily program, various events took place in the evening at which the "campers" could experience a great time. They joined the skating rink, sled down the mountain, attended a game of the local ice hockey team, ate a cheese fondue and/or enjoyed the slopes on skis or snowboard.
