Open Camps 2016

Open Camps is the largest mission-driven Open Source conference in the world, and come to the United Nations in New York City from July 8-17. With 400+ sessions being featured and far too many birds of a feather flocking to count, Open Camps is centered on dozens of Open Source Software (OSS) technologies.

Axelerant’s Chief Operations Officer, Michael Cannon, covered the event with his professional photography skills and directed the official Photography Team to showcase, promote, and evangelize in the spirit of Open Source.

Drupal Community Contributions

To date, Axelerant has brought forward over 300 Drupal 8 commits. And this month, members of our team have committed to bettering Drupal Console, a scaffolding tool aimed to help Drupal 8 developers.

Drupal Console makes life easier by generating boilerplate code with just a few prompts. Our developers will be volunteering their time to address some Drupal Console issues in order to help bring about a stable release and continue maintaining the project.

At Axelerant, we strive to ensure our approach to contributions is a holistic one. While these commits are centered on Drupal, we formed an Open Source Contribution Committee with the purpose of directing our contributions for maximum impact across the board.
