Discover Drupalcamp Roazhon 2024 in Rennes: a pivotal event for the French Drupal community, supported by Smile as a major sponsor and active participant.

Smile's Involvement and Commitment

As a recognized leader in open-source digital solutions and a significant user of Drupal, Smile not only sponsored the event but also actively contributed to the content with a delegation of ten experts. Smile's commitment went beyond financial support to include deep involvement in technical and strategic discussions, underscoring our role as a facilitator of digital innovation.

Key Sessions and Focus on Smile's Contributions

Technical Optimization of Drupal

One particularly enriching session focused on reducing runtime operations by Drupal. This approach, aimed at making the service container less dynamic and more pre-calculated, could lead to significant gains in performance and predictability, along with improved static analysis via PHPStan. Technical discussions of this nature are essential for pushing the boundaries of what Drupal can achieve in terms of performance.


Site Factories: An Enlightening Panel Discussion

The panel discussion on "site factories" was a highlight, bringing together technical and non-technical experts, including participants from Smile. This discussion provided an opportunity to share diverse perspectives on the management and implementation of site factories, an area where Smile excels particularly.

At Smile, we have a strong expertise in setting up site factories, tailored specifically to meet the needs of businesses. Our approach involves meticulously assessing the requirements in terms of the number of sites, content sharing, management, and other project-specific criteria to deliver a bespoke solution.

Towards New Uses of Drupal

The camp also provided an opportunity to attend, among other things, a presentation on FrankenPHP. These technical topics not only involve evaluation but also engage our experts in active contributions to test and improve these new technologies.


Smile's Contribution and Impact

During Drupalcamp, Smile showcased its new installation profile, Sobki, and participated in various contribution and mentoring sessions, primarily focusing on the UI Suite ecosystem that Sobki relies on. Smile's engagement in these activities demonstrates its dedication not only to the growth of the Drupal platform but also to the development of the community.
