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 on the data standards session given at Drupal Gov Days half-day conference in Marhc, this data standards session will provide a brief overview of data standards work being done at the Federal level today, including a baseline recap of US Project Open Data, but also more broadly. 

We will then explore the different categories of data standards and schema above and beyond POD that Agencies may be interested in considering and implementing, and will delve into tools and techniques for how to bake various data standards into Drupal projects. 

We'll wrap with a brief practical primer on the different approaches to meeting US Project Open Data requirements with Drupal.
