The skills that are required to be a successful Project Manager encompass a great many things, and the expertise you acquire can be applied universally across every industry and most job roles. They're so broadly applicable that you can develop the skillset needed even outside of the workplace in everyday life... Like by playing Board Games! In this session, we'll identify some of the core competencies for a Project Management, and suggest Board Games that leverage these concepts which you can play to level up your Project Management Skills!
Let’s look at your Death Star (or website) from the rebel (or hacker) perspective and how they find the exhaust ports which can ruin everything you’ve built.
What is the state of Drupal 9? What can I do now to prepare for the upcoming release? Learn how innovation happens in Drupal 9 through semantic versioning, scheduled releases, and experimental modules and why a new major release is still necessary. Hear about the various processes that are taking place to prepare for Drupal 9, including deprecation processes, and which major 3rd party APIs will be updated. Finally, learn what the support time frame for Drupal 7 sites will be and checks you can perform now to ensure Drupal 9 compatibility for a future migration.
New Developers have forgotten the importance of semantic HTML code and how they can create better user experiences and make websites more accessible utilizing it.
In this presentation, we will explain the importance of semantic code, how to use it, and why it's so important to understand as developers. We’ll explore adding tools to our toolbox that help us create semantic code in Drupal and methods to test code for accessibility compliance.
As microservices and decoupled architectures continue to mature it becomes increasingly important to be able to work efficiently between local and live environments across the entire stack. What does it take to build a decoupled interface against a Drupal backend and how can we share the work with others?
For many Drupal 8 users, image display begins and ends with Drupal core's image styles. In this session we will look at a recipe of core and contributed modules that can push this further to support better performance across devices and browsers. We will start with a brief overview of image styles and responsive images. Then we'll move into image compression and optimization, with an emphasis on the how and why of using various contributed modules together.
Drush cr… drush cr… drush cr!!! We all know the scenario where you’ve made a change to the site, but when you load the page it just doesn’t seem to show. Oftentimes the solution is to clear your cache and move on, but why is that?
In this session we’ll explore how that cache is built and used. What determines when a page can be cached, and how does Drupal know when to rebuild it? How does Drupal know when to rebuild parts of a page without rebuilding everything?
After years of preparation and work, Layout Builder has landed in core and it promises a new way to make pages in Drupal. Will Layout Builder take over from the long pedigrees of Display Suite, Panels and other page layout systems? Is it already on the way to doing that?
In this session, we will describe how we used Layout Builder on a major new Drupal 8 site and will cover:
View Modes are the site-building glue that brings your content strategy, design, media strategy, and UX development together to actually create your web displays.
View Modes have been in Drupal for some time, but what do they really do? Why are they so powerful? With Drupal 8, View Modes are now even more relevant with the standardization of Entity and Field management across entity types.
Tired of having to caption all the images on your website? Manually inputting alt tags for images gets tedious, and missing some decreases your site's search weight.
Look no further than machine learning. A powerful tool in the field of artificial intelligence, machine learning can be leveraged to solve this tedious task.
