About once a quarter the whole Achieve team gathers together in the San Diego headquarters for some learning, personal development, team building and countless hours of fun! That time is upon us once again.
The Los Angeles Drupal Development team will join the San Diego Drupal Devs here in sunny San Diego starting this week. The teams are together mainly to celebrate the great 2013 that Achieve had and to begin planning for another successful year, but also in part to participate in the first Drupal Community event of the year – SANDCamp.
This years SANDCamp, which is in our very own backyard, boasts a bevy of great training seminars, Drupal development tracks, birds of a feather talks, and keynote speeches. The Achieve team will be presenting their fair share of sessions on Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th.
- William O’Connor [CTO]: Best Practices for Drupal Integrations
- Shawn Smiley [Director of Engineering Operations]: Improving Website Performance & Scalability with Memcached as well as Behavior Driven Development 101
- Roberto Montero [Senior Engineer]: What Does User Experience (UX) Mean to Achieve?
- Dagoberto Aceves [Senior Engineer]: Custom Drupal Integration Projects; Plan, Execute, Succeed
- Ben Schluter [Marketing Manager]: Leveraging Drupal to Sell Better
The camp will be a great endnote to an awesome week of hard work at the Achieve headquarters.
The team will surely be working hard during the day. Our team has such a collaborative spirit when we get together that the chatter can be heard across the office rather than across the IRC chat room. All of the team members presenting at SANDCamp will definitely be getting some great feedback from their counterparts on their presentations, myself included. Additionally, Achieve Week is always filled with shared learning from brainstorming sessions on our development process, to lunch and learns on the latest Drupal 8 Developments.
I look forward to the whole Drupal Development Team being under the same roof for the week where the hard work during the day will lead to some great times at night around the San Diego area. We typically go bowling in Downtown San Diego, cruise the Mission Beach Boardwalk and take the go-carts for a spin near the Miramar Airbase.
Achieve week is going to be great! Watch out San Diego here comes Team Achieve!
