Are you looking forward to BADCamp 2015 as much we are? In addition to being proud sponsors at the Contrib level (come check out our booth!), CivicActions is also excited to announce several presentations by our own team members.

With the first Drupal 8 release candidate now available, it’s time to start getting serious about learning the ins-and-outs of Drupal 8 and how to prepare your skills for an upgrade. CivicActions’ own Peter Sawczynec will be presenting “Drupal 8 Kickstart for Developers”, on Sunday, October 25, 2015 at 10:00am in the Stephens Lounge. Come learn about aspects such as site directory structure, module structure, basic object oriented programming concepts you’ll need to understand, dependency injection, common hooks, Twig and Composer, and more.

Do you find yourself constantly find yourself repeating the following phrases:

“I have no idea what I’m doing”,  “I don’t belong here”, or “Everyone else is smarter than me”? Is the fear of being exposed to your colleagues as a fraud keeping you up at night? You may be suffering from impostor syndrome, which is a lot more common than you would think. While anyone can experience impostor syndrome, women are disproportionately affected by this phenomenon. Hear more about strategies to overcome impostor syndrome and own the career you deserve with engineer Heather Rodriguez, who will be co-presenting “Conquering Impostor Syndrome in the Open Source Community” with agency CHIEF director Kat Kuhl, on Saturday, October 24th at 4:30 p.m. in the Stephens Lounge.

Other notable sessions that you shouldn’t miss this year include:

Looking forward to seeing you all there! Don’t forget to stop by our booth to get a free massage and find out more about CivicActions.
