Hello Ubercart! (Drupalshow Session)

Proposed Drupalshow session:

For years now, osCommerce and its derivatives have dominated the open source e-commerce scene. While an e-commerce package for Drupal has been actively developed for the past few years, it has yet to achieve the low barrier to entry and bustling community of users and developers necessary to take on the giants. Enter Ubercart.

Building High Traffic and Scalable Businesses with Drupal

Can Drupal meet the needs of my fast growing business?

More and more startups and high traffic sites are evaluating Drupal as a development platform. I get A LOT of inquires from startups and existing large internet sites interested in switching to or using Drupal and most of theses people have the same questions and concerns that I had 3 years ago when we selected Drupal as the platform for NowPublic. This talk aims to provide an overview and discussion of the common questions and concerns that come up when evaluating Drupal as a platform for developing high traffic, scalable, business and the issues that these businesses face in using Drupal.

It is my hope that this presentation will help people at the conference who are evaluating Drupal or interested in it’s potential as a highly scaleable application framework, and that the Drupal community will gain insight into the concerns of businesses, the topics and concerns often covered in the evaluation process and in using Drupal for business, and that NowPublic and other businesses will get a chance to learn from the community and help themselves by participating and getting more involved.

Furthermore, I hope that this will form the foundation for a set of resources and documents that we can build out over time to facilitate the evaluation process so that individuals or business evaluating Drupal have a solid starting point from which to address their concerns, and so that we encourage more companies to use Drupal!

Showcase: From Flash To Drupal

I'd like to show a site I built for a music equipment company, in which they were looking to create an unusual site design, and integrate it with a community and community features.

The goal was to imitate a highly designed Flash site that shows a matrix of cards, each with small amount of info. The matrix can be scrolled horizontally, and operations can be made on each card. The specification is not finished by the public view of the site, since data entry has to be well designed as well. The original flash site is http://mooch.info (hope it is ok to put the link here).

Using Drupal itself to prototype your Drupal based web application

To show how flexible and powerful Drupal is to those used to some of the more simple minded and yet bloated CMSs, let's show what a vanilla production distribution might look like for sites say at the intermediate level of complexity, and how we can take some use case ideas from the crowd and then:

1. Prototype site navigation.

2. Prototype content types.

3. Prototype views and embedded views, panels and homespun panels (pages with embedded views).

4. Prototype easy front-page and section-front-page panneling.

5. Prototype workflow.
