Code and DevOps

This track is focused on developers and the back-end technologies to deal with today’s and future challenges. With the coming release of Drupal 8, as well as emerging Web technologies, preparation is essential. These sessions will help you learn how to deliver effective solutions to meet these needs.


There are lots of ways to visualize complex data on a map in Drupal. But for some projects, tools like OpenLayers or MapBox.js are overkill. This session will show how to quickly create responsive maps using the Snap.svg library.

Some of the code described in this presentation is now available as SnapMap, currently a sandbox project.
