Dave Stuart our CTO, and Ed Brown one of our Solution Architects, are both spending the week at Drupalcon Munich to catch up with our friends across the global Drupal community, get up to speed with all the latest developments in the Drupalsphere and most importantly, to talk to attendees about Find, our new enterprise search service.
Find provides blisteringly fast and powerful search for any Drupal 7 site in minutes by simply installing our Enterprise Search module from Drupal.org and connecting it to our search service on the cloud.

Our ‘Build it with Drupal’ course offers people new to Drupal a chance to get to know Drupal, and to build really nice looking sites. The course runs for 2 days starting the 16th of January and will give you the knowledge on how to use modules, views, panels and flags.
For more advanced Drupal users out there, we have a ‘Drupal Module Development’ course running on the 18th until the 19th of January.
Following a fantastic DrupalCon in london we are delighted to announce the winners of our Scalextric time trial competition. As you probably know the challenge was to complete 30 laps of our oval circuit in the quickest time. The fastest driver over all three Days won an iPad2 and each driver who was fastest on the other two days won an iPod Shuffle.
Our session, "Eating the Elephant - Managing a big Drupal project" at Drupalcon London is confirmed for 1:30pm on Thursday 25th August. We can talk for days about our experiences in this area, but given the limited time slot we have available for the session, the key areas we plan to cover are:
- How do I scale a Drupal team for an enterprise project?
- How can I keep agility and provide a waterfall wrapper for the client?
- Hiring: how to find the superstars
- Building team cohesion
- Selling Drupal to nervous clients
We are excited to confirm our commitment as Platinum sponsors of DrupalCon London from 22-26 August 2011. DrupalCon is the event where thousands of Drupal users, developers, designers, evaluators and business people descend on South London’s FairField Halls for sessions, talks, code sprints, and more.
A team including Dave Stuart, our CTO, attended the recent DrupalCon event to hear from industry speakers and network with Drupal experts from across the world.
The purpose of our attendance was to hear the latest trends, connect with potential partners and share information on some of the trends that we at Axis12 are setting. Dave was also invited to participate on an expert panel to discuss Solr Search.
