I was very excited about attending DrupalCamp Kyiv 2011. It was awesomeness and the most fantastic Drupal event that I have ever visited in Eastern Europe. It had the same Drupal spirit as one was on DrupalCon Copenhagen 2010. Most of the slides were in English. Interesting sessions were performed by guys who worked in Belgium company Inuits, which was sponsoring students to attend this event.
I was visiting sessions about Services, MongoDB, Git, Varnish, participated in the small talk with Yuri Gerasimov about future of Menu Token module and performed two sessions. First one was about Best practices for cross-browser compatibility of Drupal website, which I prepared for DrupalCon Chicago 2011 and the second one was about OpenAcaDept – Drupal distribution for building academic departmental websites.
I was very happy to meet and to drink beer with some well known guys in Ukrainian community. They had made great contributions to d.o and at that time were seating in front of each other and having fun. I also liked talking to Michel and Safeen from MadCap.
