If you were at the  Drupal Camp Manila last Saturday and Sunday May 7-8, 2016, that’s awesome! As part of the organising team, I loved what we were able to accomplished. We organized the camp to bring together the Drupal community from 9 different countries in the world such as India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, USA, Philippines we also have one from Costa Rica and Ireland to teach, learn, connect, and collaborate. According to Eduardo Garcia we could have call the camp as Drupal APAC Summit since 8 countries are collaborating in the event.

More or less 200 people attended the event held at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Eton Centris EDSA, Quezon City, Philippines. Students, Developers, Project managers and Business executives gathered around to hear and learn about Drupal. This year’s track was packed of greats topics such as Behat Testing, Docker, Scrum, Community, Drupal Contribution, Pantheon Terminus, Web Application Security, D8 Elastic Search,  Form API, DrupalConsole and we have workshops for Drupal 8.

In the morning event we welcomed Eduardo Garcia from Costa Rica who came all the way from Taipei as he delivered his speech as keynote, he talked about “Why investing in community is good business”. It was a great presentation full of inspiration especially for people who would like to contribute back to the community and who will be in one day organizing a drupal event,

The venue was one of the best in all drupal camps i attended  and thanks to Hewlett-Packard Philippines for hosting our event. The training rooms are really conducive for learning.

The level of effort and collaboration of our volunteers were impressive and thanks Rachel Jaro of Koodi and Sir Eladio Abquina  of HP who untiringly dedicated their time to make this event as success.
