Lebkuchenherz undpaul

We really already reached a two digit anniversary. undpaul had its 10th birthday yesterday - and that was celebrated! With hot wine, delicious food, party hats, and memories of one or the other highlight with the undpaul team - of course all compliant with the current Corona situation using a remote meeting.

Ten years it is already... It feels a little bit as if it was only a few moments ago that undpaul was founded on a bitterly cold December day 2010 in Hannover. We have experienced and learned a lot during this time, worked on exciting projects and got together with wonderful colleagues.

"The most wonderful Drupal agency in Germany" - says Stefan about undpaul.

That is true so far, we agree. But not only that is what makes undpaul. Of course there are keywords like Drupal, experience, quality and remote work / new work. But above all, our team, collegiality, flexibility, fun, commitment and integration make us who we are.

Karte 10 Jahre undpaul

We are happy that we have come so far together and wish for another 10 wonderful years with you!

Thanks to all of you who have accompanied us so far - to you our business partners with the new challenging projects, to you undpaul friends, to the Drupal community with whom we spent so many hours and of course to the whole undpaul team for the daily fun.

Danke mit Signaturen

P.S. If you want to know something about our beginnings, you can find more information in our blog post for our 3rd birthday. There you will also find answers to the often asked question "Where does the name undpaul come from and who is Paul?".

Day Orange 04.08.2018Quelle: Facebook

On August 4th 2018 the so-called Day Orange took place. The day was organized by Seebrücke, an organization that expresses solidarity with all people seeking refuge and demands safe escape routes, as well as a decriminalization of sea rescue and a humane welcome of people who had to flee or are still on the run.

We wanted to show our support and transformed our usual green logo icon into an orange heart for Day Orange.

On Day Orange, all people who wish to support the organisation and its goals were invited to show solidarity with the refugees and the many volunteer rescue workers. It is not even necessary to go to a demonstration, but rather to stand up for something together, whereby the colour orange can be used in different ways to show solidarity.

Unser Seebrücke-Logo

We very much welcome this commitment and show our support with our logo. We show our colours, we are orange.

Gruppenfoto Splash AwardLars Stauder Photography Drupal Business Deutschland e.V.

On the 8th of March 2018 it was time again, in Frankfurt the Drupal Splash Awards 2018 were awarded in the Brotfabrik. The aim of the award is to show special Drupal projects and give them a stage. Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire, Marcus Maihoff, Robert Douglas, Meike Jung, Rouven Volk and Marc Dinse were among the international jury this year.

The nominees

In total, 27 German projects were nominated this year. There have been various great projects, etc. filed in the fields of e-learning, e-commerce, non-profit, government or publishing/media. All nominees you can find here. We entered the race this year with our project ispo.com in the category publishers/media. Other contenders for the coveted award in this category were the SUPERillu (by UEBERBIT), Der Nordschleswiger (by Comm-Press) and Das Haus (by Galani Projects).

The Splash Award was international

New this year: for the first time there were also ten Austrian nominations. The Austrian Drupal community actually had the goal also to host a national competition for Drupal projects. However, there were not enough applicants, that’s why the German Splash Awards organizing team assigned the austrian colleagues an extra category. In the specially established categories "Austria", "E-Commerce", "Enterprise" and "Publishing / Media", all Austrian projects competed against each other.

The award

As in the previous year, Jeffrey A. "guided" McGuire through his presentation in a charming manner, presenting the nominated projects in each category. Compared to the previous year, significantly more spectators appeared for the award and so there were in addition to the awards also a lot of new contacts to win. All nominees received certificates and the agencies with the winning projects also took a nice, blue award back to the office.

The winners

We are pleased to have been nominated for this year with our project ispo.com in the category publishers / media. We congratulate our colleagues from Galani Projects, who won the Splash Award in the category publishers / media with their project Das Haus. More winners of this year will be available soon here.

Screenshots des Zeitungsartikels über undpauls neuen iranischen Kollegen Siavash Torkzaban in der Hannoverschen Allgemeinen Zeitung

Recently the German newspaper HAZ visited us to talk about our new Junior Drupal Developer Siavash. A positive example for the integration of a refugee on the German labor market should be presented and brought to the public. In the article, Siavash recounts the bureaucratic hurdles he had to overcome until he could finally work at undpaul. He still has to wait, be patient and hope his asylum application is successful.

Originally Siavash did not want to go to Germany but to Canada. Now he is learning both German and Drupal and is not afraid of the complexity of the task.
