Building an Intuitive Admin: Usability for the Forgotten End-User

Stephen Lucero
of
Forum One

Nearly every new project focuses heavily on the flashy design and fancy tools it'll make for its visitors. So much focus is driven into the site user's experience to make it intuitive and pleasant, but in many cases this ignores the users that will visit the site more than anybody else: the content editors.

Drag n' Drop/Mix n' Match: Patternkit + Layout Builder - The Next Gen of Drupal Page Building

Derek Reese
of
Red Hat Inc.

If you've worked on large enterprise site themes, you're probably tired of writing Twig to map in your hand-built pattern libraries to Drupal templates. If you're building sites solo, it'd be nice to not have to use 20 different modules to get all the blocks you need to make your front-end look just right after theming, or have to resort to using the pre-build Bootstrap bundles.

Dustin Harrell
of
Avid New Media

Website development tools have come a long way over the past decade and if you are just getting started you can feel lost pretty quickly. To do something simple like spinning up a CMS and installing a few plugins comes with a handful or pre-requisites that may be out of your skill set and more suited for someone in devops. What tools do I need to use? Do I need a server?

Solve the right problems to build great websites

Joe Meersman
of
Elevated Third

A smart programmer is not the one who fixes all the problems, but rather, the one who understands what the problems worth fixing are. When discussing quality software, everyone talks about unit tests and test-driven development, only a small piece of building good software. In this session, we'll explore validation and verification beyond software tests.

The Collaborative Content Audit

Dori Kelner
of
Sleight-of-Hand Studios

In a user-first world, content is the basis for ensuring great user experience. A content audit lays the groundwork for aligning organizational objectives with site visitor needs. It is the preparatory work for the site architecture, content model, and page layouts. It addresses content governance and the content creation process.

Working Effectively in a Distributed Team

Thomas Lattimore
of
Platform.sh

Thomas Lattimore is a Product Engineer at Platform.sh. He spend his days drinking fussy coffee while writing JavaScript with clacky keyboard.

A growing number agencies and development teams today work remotely or at least co-located. In fact, the Drupal Project itself is almost entirely developed by individuals in different locations.
