Learn how you can create conference or event websites!

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.

This session will focus on strategies & tips drawn from what ‘end users’  need & then explore some Drupal Examples of how to configure Drupal to be more end user focused:
