CivicActions at DrupalCon 2018

DrupalCon 2018

We’re headed to Nashville next week for another exciting DrupalCon!

Starting at the Government Summit on Monday, we look forward to learning and sharing with our fellow Drupalers who have been working to improve the user experience of government. CivicActions’ Eric Napier will be serving on the Drupal 8 Migration Panel, and discussing some of our latest work on the Migration Tools module for D8.

Social activities? Why yes – we’ll be celebrating the women and non-binary folks of Drupal at the Women in Drupal reception on Tuesday night. Come say hi!

On Wednesday, join CivicActions’ Dan Gurin for a crash course in Test Driven Development (TDD) for Drupal 8: ‘A Sweet Test Suite’ starts at 5pm.

CivicActions is on a rocket ship of growth and we’d love to connect with you about building the future of government digital services. (Psst, we’re also hiring!)

We hope to see you at DrupalCon Nashville for a week of inspiration, learning, and connection.
