drupal booking system brainstorm

I want to do this session to see whether it's possible to have a booking system
api for drupal. My thoughts are that thru' the use of an api, contributed
modules could then be created that would provide 'objects' that can be booked,
eg; room booking, flight booking, hire car booking, etc
Also, to have the option of hooking into ecommerce if required (my requirements
are for a room booking system that only takes reservations, payments are done
thru' another system).
I think this is possible by reusing some of the existing core and contributed

This session will explore the Information Architecture Process and how it relates to Drupal Web Development. Just what is Information Architecture (IA) and how does it benefit a project's development cycle as well as a site's end users?

Ubercart Development

Skill level note: To fully understand the session, programmer skill would be required. However, much of the discussion would be fully understandable by anyone with administrator skill on up.

Ubercart, a new e-commerce module package for Drupal, has been in development for almost a year now and is still going strong. While many Drupal site owners, consultants, and development studios have been getting on board using and developing for Ubercart, the project is still an unknown entity in the Drupal community at large. This session is meant to start fixing that, offering anyone who attends a firsthand account of the project, the current status of Ubercart use and development, and a whole host of tips for getting in on the action.

Presentation of Drupal powered sites

Could be either a cession for Drupalcon or Drupalshow.

 

Presentation of different existing Drupal sites. Real sites not 3 members and 100 page vues a month :). Ie for example 1.000 members or a million page vue a month or more than a year of interesting experience...

The idea is to have maybe 4-5 different sites with each 5 mn presentation of experience, modules used, lesson learned... and 5-10 mn questions, exchanges...

Among the sites presented : www.fest21.com.

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.

Lightning Talks

Speed dating, Drupal style.

The proposed format is a 5 minute presentation every 7 minutes for the alloted time. I am aware there was a session like this at the last conference, but I am not sure what the format was. Please comment if you know what the format was, or if you can advice me what works and what doesn't work.

Contact me if you wish to present. Provide your name and subject brief. Thanks!
