HUH! Shooting star Iceland - Luck or hard work? What can Drupal learn from it?

1 Slot - 45 min

Iceland (population of 300.000) reached its first major tournament, UEFA Euro 2016, after a qualification campaign which included home and away wins over the Netherlands. In doing so, they became the smallest ever nation to qualify for a major tournament.

The world football history was written again in 2017 when the team became the smallest nation by population to ever clinch a FIFA World Cup berth when they qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup 

Fine. But how have they done it? For once there is a fairly easy answer. This is a command economy kind of fairytale, managed from the top down. There are three clear strands that will be discussed in this session and then we will see what the Drupal project can learn from these.

This session is a keynote at Drupalcamp London which will take place on the 2.-4. March
