This year, Drupalcamp Colorado is taking on the topic of "Large Scale Drupal" - a phrase that was popularized by Dries Buytaert. We're taking that phrase and using it in a generic sense to help set a focus for our event.
Matthew Saunders wrote a great overview of the camp, so if you're interested and need more convincing to come, read that. This is an update on our tracks and some great sessions that have been accepted already.
Tracks and session submission requests
We're taking that theme as inspiration for our sessions which will be across 4 tracks:
- Business and Open Source
- Design and Front End
- Development and Site Building
Today we are excited to announce the first 9 sessions that have been selected. Session Submission is still open until July 11th. We've currently got too many sessions in /Development and Site Building/ and not enough sessions in the other categories. So...if you have something to say in those other areas, please submit a session (note, you have to login first, and you should register too).
First sessions that have been accepted:
There are some sessions we know we're going to accept because they come from great presenters on popular topics that match our theme. Below are the 9 sessions we knew we could accept now.
- Solution architecture: designing a strategy for project success by Diana Dupuis, Amazing CEO of Amazee Labs in the USA
- Data Analytics and the Day After by Ron Lin, CTO and Co-Founder of CARD.com
- DevOps 101 - Culture and Tools by Trent Hein, Co-Founder of Boulder's Applied Trust and a DevOps powerhouse
- Securing Customer Credit Card Data by Rick Manelius, author of the Drupal PCI Compliance paper
- Attacking Drupal by Greg Foss, of security specialists LogRhythm
- Drupal 8 Module Development: Just the Basics by Brandon Williams of New Media Denver
- Drupal 8 Plugin Deep Dive by Kris Vanderwater of Acquia
- Bliss and Enlightment: Automated testing with Behat by me, Greg Knaddison
- Productivity tools for developing with PHP and Drupal by Ben Jeavons of Acquia
I think you could attend just these 9 sessions and really have a great weekend of Drupal content and there are going to be dozens more. If you look at the titles and the presenters I think you'll see that there's a lot of people working on interesting problems as a result of dealing with "large scale" sites built in Drupal.
