As you may already know the Commerce Guys team released the first stable Drupal 8 version of the truly flexible eCommerce suite last week. In order to celebrate this important event many parties were held all around the globe. Slovenian Drupal community definitely didn't want to miss that.
We gathered at the sprintaj.si headquarters in Izola, Slovenija. Sprintaj.si is not a classical "Drupal" business; they are a digital print shop. They are also a happy Drupal Commerce user and this was their way to show appreciation and give back to the community. Sprintaj.si was also one of the most interesting eCommerce projects I've been involved with. They support many different printed matters and their prices are always calculated on the fly based on the customer's needs. Their killer feature are custom formats and If you ever worked on an eCommerce project you can imagine that this results in some pretty hefty pricing rules.
At the party we had two sessions:
- Iztok Smolič from AgileDrop presented most important new features and changes that Commerce 2 brings and
- Kevin Kaland from WizOne solutions shared his experience with migration of a Commerce project from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8.
After the more educational part the more fun side of the event continued. Our hosts prepared a bunch of super tasty burgers and sponsored a small barrel of beer. OMG, we could easily repeat that!
