Projects and budgets often live and die around quality assurance. In this session learn how a blend of client management tactics and technical resources will up your game and make you a cross-functional quality assurance and project management kaiju. Discover how to engage clients in a successful QA process from kick-off to launch with a blend of practical tips and common sense tactics.
Drawing from 35 years of experience ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, Bob Moul will share lessons he learned on his journey from the mailroom to tech CEO. The keynote, titled “How to Succeed at Success - Stacking the Odds in Your Favor,” will focus on how to build a successful and empowered life while balancing relationships, health, and, of course, a business itself.
Continuous Delivery (CD) you've heard about it used on big fancy sites, but how can you implement it yourself? The critical thing in continuous delivery is that the main branch is in a deployable state at all times enabling regular releases. At DrupalCon Barcelona Dries talked about how projects, including Drupal core, might be able to achieve this noble goal. Implementing CD in Drupal 7 can be tricky but it can also be insanely powerful.
The Drupaldelphia planning committee will be reviewing and approving the final list of sessions this week. Accepted session presenters that help us spread the word about the event will qualify for discounted admission. Stay tuned for details in the email notifying you about your sessions to learn how to get the coupon code for your discounted ticket!
Small, unexpected front-end changes are tough to spot manually and can be a signal for larger problems. Rapid development cycles, large page counts and developer fatigue can make it difficult to catch even visually obvious mistakes before they go live.
Don't miss out on your chance to propose a session and be a speaker at Drupaldelphia this year! Approved presenters may qualify for discounted admission!
You manage a Drupal site, adding content, curating the homepage. You had some developers build it for you, or maybe you built it yourself. There are some things that are sort of frustrating and confusing, but that's just how Drupal is, right? It's totally normal, right? Wait, are you saying that maybe it's not and maybe it's just my site? Oh my god, does my backend look weird to you? Like..... in a bad way?
Fast, simple, local development for the masses!
It's time to burn down W/MAMP, Virtual Box, Chef, Puppet, Vagrant, lxc, Docker, and all that other DevOps overhead. 2016 is the year cloud-based IDEs become viable.
Ever wondered why your website breaks each time you add a new feature? Want to automate testing on your site? don't know coding? No Problem! Drulenium to your rescue!!
Drupal + Selenium = Drulenium
What is Visual Regression Testing?
Drupal 8 uses Twig as its default templating engine. This has generated a lot of excitement but Twig isn't the only thing that has changed in the Drupal 8 Theme System - Twig has been a tool that has allowed us to make many other changes.
In this presentation I will give an overview of how markup should be printed in Drupal 8. I will also walk through some of the changes that have made outputting markup more complex and how to cope with them.
Topics in this session includes:
One of Drupal's great strengths is creating good user interfaces on the web. FAPI makes creating forms trivial. The theming layer provides a consistent look and feel across the site while allowing for custom skinning of any page.
Drupal has been “getting off the island” implementing P.I.E. (Proudly Invented Elsewhere) with the integration of outside open source projects like Twig and Symfony. But how far off the island will we be going? Have been consequences to moving off the island?
Drupal was written in Php because Dries Buytaert wanted to learn Php. So why do we use Php? What benefits does Php offer? How has Php shaped Drupal? This session will ask these questions and many more. Answers will be offered. Mysteries will remain. But by the end of this session you'll have a better understanding of what makes Drupal.
Can a custom Drupal 8 Theme be created in 40 minutes? It would be foolhardy to try in front of an audience. That's why it must be done. The results might not be pretty but we're going to create a theme from start to finish. In the process you'll get to see all the components that make up a theme and get acquainted with tools that get the job done.
Module development in Drupal 8 is drastically different from Drupal 7 and previous versions of Drupal. This presentation will introduce the powerful new things you can do easily in Drupal 8. Want to add fields to the node table? No problem. Want to make a condition that can be used in Blocks, Panels, or Rules? Super easy. Need to extend or alter the functionality of field form matters or widgets on your site? No sweat.
In this follow-up to the popular camp session "There's a Module for That: Don't Use It!" we will look at how we can use small bits of code to extend the functionality of Drupal Core and popular contrib modules.
In Drupal 7, for all but the most simple sites it seemed like no one used the core Block system. If you wanted to manage any kind of complicated layout you probably used Panels or the Context module.
Luckily for Drupal 8 the Block system has been vastly improved by a few key features:
This presentation will start you on your journey into Drupal 8 module development. It will show you the steps you need to take to make a simple but useful Drupal module.

Topics that will be covered
So, you've developed a beautiful, functional site on Drupal. The designers are happy, the client is happy, and users are converting. But the content editors are frustrated, they hate the experience. Sound familiar? Yeah, we've all been there.
Decoupling Drupal ("headless" Drupal) is a technique whereby the CMS sends data via JSON to the client and passes on responsibility of rendering and controller logic to the browser. When incorporated, this approach can produce responsive, customizable and scalable web applications.
