Sessions

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

Stephen Lucero

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

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.

Getting an angry wet cat to purr: turning an unhealthy client relationship into a productive one

Donna Bungard

High demands, high anxiety clients are a reality of agency life. Their stresses, deadlines, and sometimes lack of understanding of the technology can create tension and take a project (or the client relationship) off track. Together we’ll discuss common challenges and the strategies that satisfy the clients need while insulating your team; allowing them to be more effective.

Learn the basics of data analytics by visualizing the Drupal ecosystem

Leul W Shewangizaw

In this session we'll learn how to gather, clean, and visualize Drupals usage statistics using essential data science tools. 

Participants will leave the session with a host of ideas on how they can use these tools to analyze their own data; both for client work and within their organization. 

We'll cover:

Local web development environments made easy with Docker and Lando

Dustin Harrell

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

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.
