DrupalCamp Finland + Baltics 2021

Online on


The Drupal communities in Finland and the Baltics are joining forces to create an online event to share experiences and technical ideas.

The focus of the guest sessions is on technical talks that are interesting to the Drupal community. If it is something you as a developer like working with or working on be it front or back, there is a high chance someone else would like to know about it too.

The event is built of community presentations, so please do consider submitting a proposal for a talk (or encourage a colleague to talk) about something you see valuable in Drupal development.

The event will be free of charge, courtesy of the Finnish Drupal Association.


All times are EET (UTC+2).

The pain of self organization

For the past year Druid has been going over a transformation process that is taking us from centrally managed organization into a self organized one. Obviously you can't just remove management and tell everyone to take care of themselves, so there's a need for new structures and ways of interaction. Our process has been iterative (read: long and painful) and it given us a lot of chances to learn from failures but also brought improvements and shown that we're on the correct path.

The session is aimed for anyone interested in new ways of working and interested in hearing what we did, what worked and what did not.

Mikko Hämäläinen

Mikko is the CEO of Druid. He's interested in agility, organizational development, dogs and coding.



Trainee perspective - Drupal website upgrade

The presentation will focus on our experiences as Drupal beginners through a client Drupal 8 project. As an ICT and Computer Science student with no previous experience with Drupal, our presentation will provide insight on the thoughts and challenges Drupal beginners might encounter and how more experienced Drupal developers could support them. Therefore our presentation will hopefully benefit both experienced Drupal developers and Drupal beginners.

Unified statistics dissemination with Drupal: The Official Statistics Portal of Latvia

Official statistics of Latvia used to be spread over approx. 40 websites and in a variety of publishing formats from PDFs and GIFs to CSV and database with API. The Official Statistics Portal was developed as a technical platform for all statistical authorities in Latvia. The new-built solution is an out-of-the-box data publishing system with integrated data visualisation, thematic maps, reference metadata and search functionality.

In the first part of the session we will reveal the reason behind development of the project and user scenarios of the Official Statistics Portal of Latvia.

The second part will focus on technical details and challenges faced during the development process. The session is aimed at system builders and statistics professionals.

Creating business value with Drupal

On the bottom line business decisions are always based on value, where value is the benefit in relationship to the cost. Drupal has a number of strong value propositions for enterprise customers:

  • Open Source
  • Coupled and decoupled (headless)
  • Multisite capabilities
  • Strong and flexible APIs
  • Built on standards
  • Secure
  • Extensible features (commerce, digital assets, product information, etc.)
  • and many more

In this session I will show how we position Drupal as a value creating platform towards our enterprise customers.

The information in this session will be backed by real case studies from our clients.
