Site Building

Learn how to leverage the flexibility of Drupal to deliver experiences in nearly limitless ways. See how you are able to do this—often without code and relying on the ever-expanding universe of contributed modules.


Come learn how to create a website for a conference or other event! We will talk about registrations, paid tickets, sponsors, and more! How can I create such awesome websites? Using COD of course! COD, the Conference Organizing Distribution, has a long history in powering regional Drupal camps, summits and even DrupalCon. But COD is more than just a distribution for Drupal events. Recent work on COD has made it far more flexible and friendly, so that it can drive any events-oriented website from unconferences and regional meetups to large international conferences. In this session we will show you how COD makes event organization easier. We will also give you a peek under the hood to show you how it works and let you know how you can contribute to making COD even better.
