Great websites are made before a line of code is ever written. By developing strategies in collaboration with our clients, powered by insights about users, we lay the groundwork for transformative possibilities.
This talk will focus on such strategies, and identify how applying them can:
- accelerate innovation fueled by a common vision
- intentionally align key stakeholder needs
- reduce risk and lower costs through early alignment
At Eastern Standard, we’ve spent several years refining our approach to the design and implementation of content-rich websites, transitioning away from “templates” and toward modular components that can be combined, re-used, and updated as needs change. This presentation will provide an overview of what we've learned through that process, with concise, actionable takeaways for those who:
a) want to start using a systems-based approach to design, or
Have you dreamed of embracing "automated testing", having heard that it's the solution to all of your problems, and helps you sleep at night?
Are you overwhelmed at all the terminology and tools associated with CI/CD, testing, and automation in general?
This session provides a practical view of Test Driven Development when implemented in the real world.
Last year's implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union has spurred a debate across the United States at both the federal and state level about how to improve data privacy practices through government regulation. Preparations for the California Consumer Privacy Act (which goes into effect at the beginning of next year) are underway at many businesses and it appears to be only a matter of time before other governments take action.
When designing and building a website, too often companies deprioritize content. So it's no surprise that a top reason why site launches are delayed is because content is not ready.
What does it look like for content to go from an afterthought to a requirement? And, what happens during a website migration when developers, desginers, and content strategists collaborate effectively?
Accessibility is not just a hot topic, but an essential consideration of any web development project.
In this session, we will cover:
Everyone wants to build a business around an “app”. That’s fine, but learning to code is hard while also building a business around the app you want. Prototyping your site with Drupal allows you to do the hard thinking that app designers and software architects do, without having to learn their specific skills. Super bonus, if you find a Drupal developer, they can build the rest of the website based on the prototype you’ve already built!
Drupal sits in the middle:
Backdrop CMS includes an in-site module installer that downloads from BackdropCMS.org. In an upcoming version of Backdrop, these module packages (and eventually the modules themselves) will be digitally signed by the Backdrop CMS team using a new Code Sign interface. John will talk about how Code Sign works, why it is in Backdrop, and how it affects sites from the perspectives of site owners, site builders, and module developers.
Security is not a one-time activity that is performed and completed. A mature operation promotes continuous improvement in an ever evolving landscape of threats and mitigation techniques. Where does this leave us in the Drupal community?
The accessible web, it's not just for avoiding lawsuits anymore. What makes a site accessibilitiy compliant? How can we get there - and why should we bother? This session will provide a foundation in accessibility concepts and guidance in leveraging that foundation into organizational change, where everyone who touches the site remains aware of accessibility issues. Join us in the quest for WCAG 2.0 AA Compliance!
Proposed presentation. The use of Drupal in the corporate environment - challenges and industry trends. Open source vs acquia - what are the gaps. Challenges with content and solutions like Cohesion DX.
WCAG 2.0 was published a decade ago, which is an eternity in Internet years. This past June, the W3 released WCAG 2.1. These new guidelines focus on improving accessibility for users with cognitive disabilities and for users who browse websites on mobile devices, like tablets and smartphones. So what does that mean for you?
In this session, we’ll answer questions like:

Four Letter words to describe your teammates
by Tiffany Powley
A lot of people think that in agile, we plan work just in time, that we wait until just before a sprint to do our planning. That's true but what's also true, and often ignored, is the part where you architect strategy ahead of time, getting agreement on high level what, why and how before sending work to developers.
