This is an overview of the tracks for Drupal Dev Days 2020.
- Accessibility, Frontend & UX Design
Building a website or web application, with Drupal or with another technology, it is usually not complete without a beautiful and usable design. This track is for everyone who wants to learn or improve how to make things not just pretty, but also usable with new, exciting or reliable technologies.
- Business & Strategy
Without Strategy or Business, most of us would be out of a job, this track is a space where we can discuss how to sell and market Drupal. It also includes talks about how to run a digital agency and how to include contribution into that work.
*This track is not for marketing talks that focus solely on a specific company
- Code & Development
Code & Development is the track to talk about coding in Drupal. Sessions here focus about the present of Drupal, how you can leverage the huge API surface of the ecosystem to create engaging platforms that help your customers succeed.
- Core Conversations
Core Conversations are a place for people actively working on and contributing to Drupal to meet, discuss and plan the future.
Where regular tracks and sessions focus on the present and immediate future, Core Conversations are about long-term. They are not only about presenting ideas and plans but also about putting questions forward and finding answers to open questions.
DevOps operates at the intersection of development and operations. The DevOps culture is all about automating repetitive tasks, streamlining the development process and speeding up feedback loops, resulting in higher quality code and, ultimately, better products.
- Digital Transformation + Enterprise
Drupal sites these days are no longer simple isolated pieces of content-storage. They are connected with API’s, CRM’s, ERP’s and many more different kinds of external systems.

Ensure that your next integration will be a success by listening to the sessions here.
