We've recreated Netflix with Videola, which is an open source distribution of Drupal (built with Lullabot love) for powering IPTV websites. In this session you'll get a quick look at the configuration Videola provides out of the box. Blake will then show how you can tweak the membership product settings, and how you can do more customization to suit your particular use case. By the end of the session you'll have an idea of how some of building blocks provided by Drupal and Videola can be stitched together to suit your needs, however strange they may be.
Drupal 7 has a lot of really nice new features in it, so upgrading your site could bring a lot of benefits. Upgrading can look straightforward in writing but there are a lot of little things to pay attention to in the process. In this session we'll demonstrate the steps of upgrading a site from Drupal 6 to 7. We'll look at Drupal core with some contributed modules as well, including making sure that things like our old CCK fields and Views get updated properly. We'll then talk about the resources available if you need to update any custom modules or themes as well.

Karen Stevenson has cloned Meetup.com in Drupal and called it Groupal. Hear how Karen incorporated Organic Groups with events, locations, rsvps, photo galleries, and activity streams, all stitched together with Panels and Views. In the process of building this out we had to analyze which of several alternative modules to use for location, signup, activity stream, photo gallery and other functionality. Karen will discuss why we picked the modules we did and will note others that might work as well or better in other situations.
