Imagine that for a week the greatest international experts in your favorite technology will meet in a city to share experiences, work together and gather knowledge. That is, essentially, what will happen during the month of March 2017 in Seville (Spain) with Drupal: Drupal Developer Days 2017.
In March 2017 the Drupal Developers Days (also known as DDD) visits Seville. After having travelled all over Europe (Milan, Montpellier, Széged, Dublin, Barcelona, Munich, Brussels...) the most relevant community-driven event in Europe for contributing back to Drupal comes to this great city, full of history and beautiful places in the south of Spain. And we are especially pleased to have been chosen to organize this important event in our city. For us it is a great opportunity to show that the local community of Drupal Seville is very active and is very keen to do important things and we are very motivated to be the hosts of other members of the international community of Drupal, organizing a quality, fun and flavorful event.
This year our look and feel is a tribute of the commemoration of the five hundredth anniversary of Ferdinand Magellan's circumnavigation of the Earth, which sailed from Sanlúcar de Barrameda (very close to Seville), on 20 September 1519. For the same reason, the venue will be held in an incredible place on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, near to the historic centre of Sevilla. There is a magical universe suitable only for intrepid companies and developers lovers of Drupal.
From 21st to 25th March 2017, our agenda will be full of sessions and sprints focused on Drupal, PHP, and Web Development, and anything around it. We are waiting for you. If you are involved with Drupal you can connect, meet, share and enjoy with other “drupalers” in an amazing venue and city.
Obviously, an event of this type is not the fruit of the work of a single person or of a single entity. In the management of the proposal, idea development, identity creation, design, web implementation and day-to-day management there are many (many more people than you would believe) very involved and without whose work it would not be possible To hold this meeting. We have to thank many, many people who work day by day on a voluntary way for make that Drupal Developer Days 2017 Seville is a reality.
We would have to name many people and organizations and surely we would forget people ... we will write another post only with thanks, for sure, to be able to explicitly recognize the work of these people and entities.
First, "Isla de la Cartuja" is a land of the city of Seville located between two arms of the river Guadalquivir, one live river and the other a dock. It is understood that the island begins in the Bridge of the Christ of Expiration, place where there is a narrowness of land between the two arms of the river, and ends in the Supernorte Round, where the Guadalquivir dock ends. It belongs to the District of Triana.
The island is about 4 kilometers long by 1.70 wide in its widest part and about 800 meters in its narrowest part and the name "de la Cartuja" is given by the monastery of the Cartuja de Sevilla, which is located on the South side.
Second, "Isla Mágica" is a theme park in Seville, Spain. The park was constructed on the former grounds of the Expo '92 World's Fair in Seville and opened in 1997.
Our venue will be El Fuerte, situated in the northern section of the Isla Magica Park in the thematic centre known as Puerta de América.
Third, "El Fuerte" meticulously recreates the fortress city of Ciudad Heróica of Cartagena de Indias. This covered area has capacity for around 950 people.
The central area of this fortress will be the area where the sprints will happen, and sponsors booths will be there too. There is a scenario there for keynotes and special announcements, and cafeteria, lunch service and the session rooms have direct access from this central area.
Be aware: We won’t use the main entrance, so please take into account that we will use the entrance at C/ Juan Bautista Muñoz (Free parking is available there if you are coming to the venue by car)
