DrupalDriven developers took part in Drupal Balkan Summit that was held on December 8-9, 2012 in Zagreb. Plenty of Drupal tips and open source techniques used for creating powerful websites on Drupal platform were primarily in the summit. The organizers of the event are Drupal Communities from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia. Drupal Balkan Summit hosted about 100 Drupal programmers, regional shop employees in order to figure out urgent issues that arise in Drupal environment, to know how to deal with Drupal on the first steps of your work with this app.

How was organized this event

The regional communities decided to organize this event in two days.

First day:
• Registration of the participants;
• Presentation of the projects (mistakes that inexperienced Drupal developer can make on the first projects, presentation of modules and more);
• Closing speech;
• Breaks.

Second day:
• Presentation of the projects (new improvements in Drupal that makes it more convenient and bug free);
• Lunch;
• After party.

Who participated in this event

The most of attendees were people from South-Slavonic region, that's why the second day's sessions were on BCMS languages. But the first day was totally English, thus DrupalDriven developers could understand everything and do their part in discussions.
They note: "Whether you are just starting work with Drupal or know everything about this platform, you could find something interesting for you in these discussions".

What is the perspective of such events

As Drupal is one of the most popular and used platforms for creation of the websites, the most important issues Drupal communities focus on are expanding Drupal's capabilities and solving the main problems. Thus thematic events, such as Drupal Balkan Summit are very useful and help developers to unite their efforts in order to improve and develop such strong and powerful platform as Drupal.
