Submit your Site Building Session to DrupalCon Vienna

DrupalCon Vienna will be taking place end of September this year. The site building track is about letting Drupal do the hard work without needing to write code. By assembling the right modules and configurations we can create rich and complex features, without worrying about reinventing the wheel and write complex logic and code.

DrupalCon Session

Sounds great, right? As excited as I am for helping to put together the program for the site building track, I would like to share a few session ideas, which might be worth submitting. If you have never submitted a session for DrupalCon, this might be a good opportunity to give it a try:  

Showcases will let others learn from how you built your last exciting Drupal 8 project. Talking points can include which approaches you took, lessons you learnt from working on the project, and what fellow site builders should know when tackling similar problems.

Module presentations are a great way to explain and highlight best practice solutions. How do you choose from the various competing site building tools available to address problems like layout management, workflows or content modelling? Are the same solutions from Drupal 7 still valid, or what are the latest experiences you've had whilst building Drupal 8 sites and how could this be further developed and enhanced in the future?

Process descriptions are welcome to help us figure out how site building can best fill the gap between end users, content editors, developers, UX designers and anyone else involved in Drupal web projects. How do you involve your customers and explain site building to them? What does a developer need from a site builder and where do those practices blend? 

Outside perspectives are also welcomed to learn how problems can be solved the site builder’s way in related web technologies.

Together with Hernâni Borges de Freitas and Dustin Boeger, we are looking forward to reviewing your exciting and interesting applications. If you aren’t sure what to present, feel free to get in touch via the contact form on my profile or Twitter.

Thanks for submitting your session by June 28, 23:59 CEST.

Hello, I made a note to submit a session but confused the deadline with another Drupal event's June 30th deadline. So here's my site-builder's session in case it's not too late. Note - To be honest, I'm not sure I can afford to travel to Vienna from Canada :-( But I would be willing to do this presentation if I can do it using or other means.

Drupal Commerce: the challenges of building rental stores

If I say e-Commerce what's the first thing you're thinking of ? Probably a website where you can buy products of some sort. Websites where you can rent, say, a tool, a car or a room are special use cases that account for a small percentage of the e-commerce landscape. If you think about it for a minute, you'll also realize that the worflow is very different. Generally speaking, when one buys something it's for ever (one lane, one way). But when one rents it's for a limited time and when this time expires, the object needs to be returned; and until it is returned it cannot be rented out to someone else (multi-lane, two ways). Building a standard end-to-end e-commerce website is hard. As you can probably imagine, building an end-to-end rental store is beyond challenging. In this session, we'll look at those challenges in more details and see what's possible with Drupal contrib modules.
