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.


Building a successful Drupal website or Platform is often all about a lot of configuration & modeling of the needs of the folks who will be using the site & how the content they are producing is exposed. 

Who are these ‘end users’? They are just good people who want to easily get work done & I’ve been one of them in Drupal 5, Drupal 6 & Drupal 7. 

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: 

“I’d like to not be able to accidentally delete or mess up my content” 

“I’d like automated filtering to be able to find content I need to edit”

“Drag & Drop everywhere!!”

“What does this revert button do and how do I NEVER have to see it again”
