Wow, what an event!

We would like to thank you for contributing to the magic of Drupal Mountain Camp 2024 and making it tremendous success!

From the snow-capped peaks of learning to the comfy fireside chats of networking, the event was a one-of-a-kind experience that left a lasting imprint on all of us.

As I look back on the laughter-filled evenings and the insightful discussions that echoed through the venue to the fondue evening, I'm reminded of the incredible sense of community that defines us.

We are immensely grateful for the insightful presentations by our honoured speakers, the generous support from our valuable sponsors, and the dedication and hard work of our volunteers to ensure the event's success.

Together, we explored new ideas, shared knowledge, and forged meaningful connections within the Drupal community.

As we reflect on the success of this year's conference, we're already looking forward to what lies ahead for the next Drupal Mountain Camp.
