Do it with Drupal - New Orleans
On December 12, 2008, I’ll be in New Orleans to talk about the exciting world of Drupal Search. In a first-of-its-kind event, the Lullabots have organized a “large-scale, 3-day learning event” that will bring together some of Drupal’s most sought after speakers, as well as a number of other prominent internet personalities and luminaries. I’m looking forward to meeting some of the speakers who aren’t necessarily known as Drupal rockstars (meaning they did something else to get famous):
- Chris Pirillo (Gnomedex, Lockergnome.com)
- Tara Hunt (Citizen Agency, HorsePigCow)
- Brian Oberkirch (Brianoberkirch.com)
- Lane Becker (GetSatisfaction.com)
- Heather Champ (Director of Community at Flickr)
My session will focus on practical solutions for common problems encountered when building Drupal sites. I’ll look at core search as well as some of the other solutions available (like the ApacheSolr module), and explain why we can expect more (and get it!) from Drupal search. If you’re going to be there, and have any requests or questions, I’d love to hear those as well.
