Drupal Distributions are a hot topic in the Drupal community. This session is intended to share first-hand experience building multiple, popular Drupal distributions: OpenPublish, Tattler, the recently announced OpenPublic.
Irakli Nadareishvili of Phase2 Technology will discuss various architectural challenges of building and managing a distribution, solutions such as Installation Profiles, CTools, Features, Context, Drush etc., as well as how to facilitate two-way communications with the community, involve your users and where to get help.
OpenPublish is a packaged distribution of Drupal, tailored to the needs of online publishers. First released about a year ago, it has quickly gained momentum. It already has hundreds of active installations, thousands of downloads, professional support from Phase2, Acquia and their partners, 9 minor releases and two major releases and that's just the beginning. It is the obvious choice for news publishers who want to get a head-start on Drupal.
Come and learn why publications are choosing OpenPublish as their publishing platform, how OpenPublish is helping widen the circle of Drupal adoption, what it can offer to publishers, what is coming in the future releases and engage in discussion with OpenPublish authors.
