About Drupal Europe
DrupalCon Europe is taking a break, but it was loud and clear that the European Drupal community needs an opportunity to meet, connect and share. Because of this, we decided to organize Drupal Europe (the biggest Drupal event in Europe in 2018) with a group of community volunteers in collaboration with the Drupal eV (German Drupal Association) and the Drupal Europe Foundation. We'd like to update you on our progress and turn to you for input.
Some things that did not work well at DrupalCon will change, while we try to keep our favourite traditions. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved. We are super excited!
Our aim is to organize a sustainable event where people from the European (and global) Drupal community can collaborate together on tackling challenges and engage in order to make Drupal grow both as a technology and as a brand.

I started working with Drupal four years ago in a support role to the University of Edinburgh Drupal 7 CMS. More recently I've started getting involved in site building, coding and contributing to modules. I have attended 3 DrupalCons and love the community spirit. Volunteering for Drupal Europe is my biggest contribution to date and has opened my eyes to how great this community is.
Baddý Sonja Breidert (baddysonja) is the CEO and Co-Founder of 1xINTERNET, one of the largest Drupal web agencies in Germany.
Baddý graduated with B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Reykjavik in 2003 and after that completed her M.Sc. in Engineering Management from the Technical University in Vienna, where she today teaches Agile Project management and IT. She is also an European champion in Robotic Soccer - where she competed with her University in 2008.
Baddý is very active in the Drupal community and is one of the organisers of Drupal Europe. Since January 2018, Baddy is a board member of the Drupal Association.
I am glad to be part of the DrupalEurope team, helping to organize the publishing / media vertical. This is in exiting times, times of crisis and promises at the same time. A chance that publishers start to think about cooperation, when it comes to technology, instead of watching the big players Google, Facebook, Twitter, ebay, etc. shaping the landscape for publishing and advertising. This is right where I want to be :)
