Business and Strategy

The purpose of this track is two-fold - one angle helps you to understand the advantages of Drupal from an organizational leadership angle and the other is to highlight the great Drupal sites and projects you're working on and to show what's possible. These sessions are business focused, and will be non-technical.


Drupal 8 is right around the corner and unless you have either been involved in Code Sprints or even know what a Code Sprint is then this session is for you.  I will take us on a journey of all the scary things that Non-Developers fear and bring us out into the world of Developers lingo, thinking and strategies.  After this session you will be able to overcome your Octophobia and walk and talk Drupal 8 with the best of them.

Session includes:

  • Drupal 8 terminology - A to Z
  • Dissecting a layout - From Blocks to Regions
  • Context - What is it and why we use it
  • Aggregating content - Views, views everywhere views
  • Strategies for UX
