Greg Knaddison (Greggles), Ben Jeavons (Coltrane) and Brad Bowman (beeradb) gave a session on modules you might consider using when you build a Drupal site. This was kind of the followup to the session at Drupalcamp Colorado. The first set of videos can be seen on the Camp post - and I had a tripod there so the video is quite a bit more steady - but the presentation in Paris was a little different.
Posted below are the videos from that presentation. I hope they are informative.
Here are the shaky videos I took yesterday from Dries' "State of Drupal" keynote. Most are on YouTube - one ended up on BlipTV because it ended up being 17 seconds longer than the 10 minute mark.
I hope you enjoy them!
It seems every 6 months or so I'm writing a post similar to this one. A contingent of us from pingVision will be making the trek over the pond to attend the conference. We have, once again, rented a flat near a metro stop rather than getting hotel rooms.
There are several benefits to this kind of arrangement.
- It is cheaper per person.
- Given that we are away from the office for a week, it is helpful that we're able to use the flat as a surrogate office, at least a little bit.
- We can purchase food from the local market rather than always eating at restaurants.
If you have a group, consider looking for an apartment or flat before finding a hotel. They are good value.
I generally use Vacation Rentals by Owners when looking for a place, but there are other services as well.
I've submitted a proposal to Drupalcon Paris. It is titled Build A Community Site - No Coding Required and is focused on new-comers to Drupal. When a person is looking to create a small community site or blog, there are different options out there ranging from Wordpress, to Joomla!, to Blogger, to Drupal.
When a new user approaches Drupal, there is often a sense that the software is overwhelming. In truth, when you break Drupal down, much of it is fairly simple and straight forward to develop a basic site.
