The second speaker was the art director of Kuy Digital, Oliver Kuy a drupal designer who loves theming and photoshop, He tackled the basic PSD to Drupal Theming, Oliver carefully discussed the process in
customizing drupal sites without much of coding.

Young talked about “5 Reasons to use Drupal”. He also have shown us an infographics of the status of drupal in the US, and why the US Government trust Drupal.

Our last speaker was Albert Causing, he discussed about the OM Maximenu module developed by one of our members in DUG, Daniel Honrade.

The event was even more fun when participants joined the gangnam style dance, students from PUP shows no shyness when they rock on the dance floor.
