DrupalCon Europe 2021 is almost here. It is one of the major events in the Drupal community global calendar, and we at Evolving Web are very excited about it. After all, taking part in those gatherings is one of our favourite things about working with Drupal.
There are countless agencies in Montreal and even more throughout North America, many of which offer similar career opportunities as Evolving Web. But here's the thing: none have Alex and Suzanne.
As a long-time member of the Drupal community and a co-founder of Evolving Web, I think there's a huge opportunity to leverage Drupal to build a stronger, more plural open source community. Drupal has long led the way in the digital space as a tool to create accessible content and experiences for all kinds of audiences. Being more explicit about our actions to increase the inclusiveness of the community that surrounds Drupal is an important next step.
Last week I had the pleasure of hosting Evolving Web's Diversity in Tech event at DrupalFest. I’m fairly new to the Drupal world, and I was excited about this opportunity to connect with the community, which is one I’ve always admired.
The idea of hosting a diversity-themed event at Evolving Web came to us on International Women's Day. It was my second week on the job and together with Suzanne Dergacheva, our co-founder, we decided to host an internal discussion on the subject of women in tech.
Our co-founder Suzanne Dergacheva looks back on two years volunteering on the Drupal Association Board of Directors (and shares why you should consider running for a seat).
Originally from Winnipeg, MB, I moved to Fredericton, NB before beginning high school. I’ve always had interests in a variety of areas. I have a background as a musician, experience with content creation and design, and a fascination with computers. I was interested in learning more about web development, and working with an experienced agency seemed like an ideal way to gain those valuable skills.
A few weeks ago, we launched our Scholarship program to give organizations in need due to the COVID-19 crisis access to free training. Our goal is to help scholarship recipients build a solid technical foundation and the skills they need to build a solid future. So far, we've had a tremendous response and have been able to give away dozens of scholarships to our upcoming courses.
