Site Building at DrupalCon 2013 in Portland

Filed under:

I'm very excited to announce that papers are now being accepted for DrupalCon 2013 in Portland! I'm heading up the Site Building track this year and we have some very exciting things to talk about in both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 this year.

Some of the main themes we'll be covering this year in Site Building will include using third-party modules to control the content layout of your site, modules that can add quick functionality with no configuration, and modules that can add very complex functionality without having to have the technical knowhow that would normally be required. If you like using Drupal but aren't looking to master PHP, this is the track for you.

There are some specific items we want to see covered this year. Talks that cover layout tools like Panopoly, Tiles, and Display Suite are encouraged. Modules that are quick to install and configure are definitely needed. I would love to see a talk on Beans or something similar. Got a hot talk on SOLR? We may want it.

The Site Building track traditionally has a ton of sessions submitted so it's going to be tricky to decide which ones make it, but I'm excited to see them all. Most of all, I'm excited to see everyone here in my hometown of Portland in May!

Don't miss Portland DrupalCon!

Hey Dan,

At Munich we did a panel session about Display Suite, Panopoly, Context and Beans with all the module maintainers, see…. Maybe we can do something like this again in Portland. I'm pretty sure enough maintainers are going to be in Portland, including myself normally.

I would love this. Can someone submit a presentation to the association site? Proper channels and all that...
