DrupalCon Amsterdam Partner Technical Enablement Session


Rai Amsterdam, Room G106, Auditorium, Centre First Floor | Monday, October 28th

DrupalCon Amsterdam


This year, we’re thrilled to be hosting a Technical Partner Session on Monday, October 28th, and focusing on Acquia platform as well as our new solution, Acquia Cohesion, the first enterprise-grade, low-code Drupal website builder.

We will also be hosting  “Ask Me Anything” Q&A session with Drupal’s founder and Acquia’s CTO himself, Dries Buytaert at the end of the session!

During this session we’ll demonstrate the features of Acquia Cohesion and explain some best practice approaches to delivering Cohesion projects. We’ll then do a live build to demonstrate just how fast Cohesion allows you to create digital experiences for your customers.

Cohesion becomes even more effective when deployed across projects or on multisite customer projects. We’ll show you how Cohesion assets can be reused and then customised quickly for different websites and how Cohesion can help you drive a design system approach for enterprise customers.

This is a must-attend session for technical specialists who want to learn about the fastest low-code way to build Enterprise- grade Drupal sites and are looking to fuel the growth of their business and find greater alignment with Acquia.
