Boiler Room B, Hotel Shattuck Plaza
With the component-based approach becoming the standard for Drupal 8 development we’re beginning to see some slick front-end environments show up in Drupal themes. The promise that talented front-enders with little Drupal knowledge can jump right in is now a reality and we at Mediacurrent are experiencing this firsthand already.
Register for the Component Based Development training.
Gatsby is rapidly becoming one of the most popular ways to build a React front-end on the web, and Drupal 8 is one of the best platforms to use as a back-end for Gatsby's data source! In this training you'll learn how to take a brand new Drupal 8 site running the Umami Demonstration Install Profile and build a recipe blog front-end using GatsbyJS and React. Once complete, we'll take our brand new site live using Netlify, a popular free hosting platform for Gatsby sites.
Experience with React is not required for this training!
Drupal is an extremely flexible system. To achieve this, various layers of abstractions were built into it. A lot of concepts were created to explain these abstractions. Unfortunately, they are not always intuitive. This session aims to explain the basic building blocks for assembling a Drupal site and how they relate to each other. Many examples will be presented to help you understand Drupal and why it is so powerful.
Learning Objectives & Outcomes:
By the end of the session, attendees will understand:
* What is a node?
This talk explores common myths between design and development, and I’m here to bust them!
Is this you?
- A designer wondering what happens to your beloved mockups after handed off to the development team
- A developer having nightmares about the intricacies of design and functionalities seeming way off base of budget and scope
- A project manager watching from the sidelines wondering how this process can be improved
As a Project Manager, Strategist, Developer, Designer, or Stakeholder, we are all part of the puzzle—and it's crucial to keep sight of the big picture—even when we’re required to pivot from the original plan. Pivots come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can be a minor change that’s quickly integrated into the scope or a major departure that alters the entire course of the project.
Drupal’s extensibility allow us to create the perfect CMS for our organizations. But too often the same level of design is not considered when building out the editorial interfaces. The default tools are often scary for first-time Drupalers and include confusing words like ‘nodes’, ‘taxonomy’, and ‘blocks’. Making Drupal friendly for clients means checking internal jargon at the door and building interfaces that are intuitive and distraction free. Topics include:
As Dries Buytaert discussed in the DrupalCon Seattle keynote, open source has a serious diversity problem - and that includes our own Drupal community. We are people who care about fairness for all, and yet inequality persists. What can we do?
This presentation is a high-level survey of emerging technologies that complement Drupal. Drupal can do a lot of things well, but, Drupal is also capable of working with best of breed tools thanks to its robust framework and vast set of contributed modules. We explore how this integration occurs for some promising technologies.
