9:00am to 5:00pm
With a combination of presentation, discussion and hands-on activities, developers will reverse-engineer and augment a Drupal site. Developers will get familiar with key tools of the trade for site maintenance. They will learn about site building, module and theme development; about Drupal’s structure “under the hood”, and how to architect a flexible site. They will find out about opportunities for developers and how they can apply their experience from other areas.
Even well-seasoned Drupal developers can be tempted to start creating a site with the modules and implementation strategies they’re familiar with, making important decisions that dramatically impact content architecture before they’ve taken a look at the bigger picture. Through several exercises and real-world examples, participants will learn strategies for designing flexible content types, views, and taxonomies, and we’ll demonstrate what a truly flexible architecture can provide. We’ll talk about how seemingly simple requirements and integration with external systems can dramatically influence architectural decisions.
