A week in Paris

By Eduardo García ● CTO | October 10th, 2016

Last week I had the opportunity to visit Paris, France for a week as part of my tour Around the Drupal world in 140+ days.

Sadly for me, I got a #drupalflu in Drupal Con, Dublin; So I wasn’t in the best shape to enjoy the city.

I want to say thank you to Sebastien Lissarrague and his family for allowing me to stay with them in their home.

During my visit, I had the opportunity to participate in the local Drupal Meetup of the Paris community.

Also, I visited some companies like Koriolis, Sensio Labs and Platform.sh.

At Koriolis I have the opportunity to show the owner and developers the Drupal Console project to accelerate the Drupal 8 adoption in their projects.

During my visit to Sensio Labs, I had a session with the part the Symfony Core development team, to show them how we have been using the Symfony Console in Drupal Console project.


During my visit to Platform.sh I learn I little bit how they enable to their Drupal 8 user the usage of Drupal Console project. Next week I will write an article about that.

About the city, I think anything that I could say about Paris will be nothing compare how beautiful it’s; I would recommend you to visit three mandatory places in you visit.
