One of the landmark IT-world events – DrupalCon 2022 – took place in Portland last week. Finally, it was open to the visit in person. Our teammate, Joel Kepple, was present there, and we will be happy to share with you a brief overview of this year's event.
DrupalCon annually brings together a large number of agencies, service providers, end customers, as well as, Drupal experts and enthusiasts to network, learn, and share experiences. For us, it’s a great opportunity to meet potential partners and discuss in person their business needs and our capabilities, which, of course, is much more effective than the online communication we so got used to over the past two years.
As an active community member, AnyforSoft participated in and sponsored numerous DrupalCons since 2017, and we’re really glad to be among the companies that had their stands on the DrupalCon 2022 in Portland, too. You may have already seen our green booth in the photos we posted earlier on social media. We always strive to give a bit more, and this time, for safety reasons we also decided to refuse any printed materials and supplement our physical representation with a digital brochure for our booth visitors.
Traditionally, aside from various summits and conferences, DrupalCon provides ample opportunities for networking through various related events, such as Agency Leaders Dinner, and afterparties. We were really happy to become a part of this year’s events and believe that the results of these few days and all the amazing people that were met at DrupalCon 2022 will enrich the company with new partners and projects.
It is also worth mentioning that this year in his annual address to the community, the founder of Drupal, Dries Buytaert, especially highlighted the importance of providing support to Ukraine as the 6th most actively contributing to the project country. He also stated clearly that he, the Drupal Association, and the Drupal community condemn the russian attack. Moreover, our CEO Anatolii Pazhyn was among those who on behalf of the Ukrainian Drupal community, addressed the visitors of the event and the Driesnote viewers with a small speech about the significance of supporting Ukraine in these difficult times.

Despite all the obstacles, DrupalCon 2022 was extremely productive for the AnyforSoft team. We're very grateful to everyone who participated and made it possible. Looking forward to the next Drupal events, in which we'll hopefully be able to take part as representatives of already victorious and free Ukraine!
