Sessions

Build a powerful, highly performant search application with React, Apache Solr, and Drupal

Chris Russo and Dan Murphy

This spring, our team built a high performing, ultra fast search interface for a client Drupal site using React JS, Apache Solr, and the Drupal Search API module.

This project allowed the client to leverage some of the well-established benefits of decoupling Drupal's content from the presentation layer, while also avoiding many of the challenges that complete decoupling involves.

Friends Inside My Computer: Making Connections in a Remote Workplace

Kelly Dassing, Chris Manning and Sam Seide

We’ve all heard the old adage: you spend more time with your coworkers than with your family. While it’s still true, things are a little more complicated for remote teams. The “work family” you may have had when stuck in cubicle farms isn’t quite the same when you work for a distributed company.

GatsbyJS: A Powerful FE Tool for Decoupled Devs

Grayson Hicks

Want to learn about GatsbyJS?  What it is and how it can help you and your team?

Is it a framework?  Is it a static site generator?  GatsbyJS is an exciting way of thinking about building sites for the modern web.  

I will cover some of the main benefits that you or your team could experience with Gatsby:

Getting closer to your customer: Using Drupal in the last mile

Kelly Albrecht

With all of the advances in DevOps, it is easy to focus on delivering more, faster, as our important measures of success. However, DevOps is as much about listening as it is about delivering. How do we know we are delivering the right things? How are we informing our customers of this work and getting their feedback effectively?

No More Post-Its! Automate Configuration in Drupal 7 & 8

Chris OConnor

Learn to change tires on a moving car! 

In this session, you'll learn efficient and bulletproof(-ish) ways to roll out significant changes to new/existing sites without any manual UI changes. No more scribbling, code-pushing, and clicking: enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your configuration will automatically cascade into all your environments.

We'll touch on:

Overcoming Impostor Syndrome

Kathryn Grayson Nanz

I don't know about you, but I'm very familiar with the feeling that I'm just sitting at my keyboard "faking it 'til I make it." But let me tell you a secret: We're all just making it up as we go...and that's the best part of our job!  Impostor Syndrome holds us back and tells us that we don't deserve to be here, but it's wrong. In tech, we're especially likely to struggle with Impostor Syndrome

Pivoting in a Project: Strategies for adjusting to scope changes

Brian Manning and Kelly Dassing

As a Project Manager, Strategist, Developer, Designer, or Stakeholder, we are all part of the puzzle—and it's crucial to keep sight of the big picture—even when we’re required to pivot from the original plan. Pivots come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can be a minor change that’s quickly integrated into scope, or a major departure that alters the entire course of the project.
