DB AT DRUPALCON
Digital Bungalow has just returned from DrupalCon, the world’s largest conference for enthusiasts of Drupal, the leading Content Management System. We participated in some fascinating discussions around a number of cutting-edge marketing and technology topics, which we’ll be sharing with you in the coming days and weeks right here on our blog.

DRUPALCON IN A NUTSHELL
The hot topic at DrupalCon this year was Mobile Web. Drupal creator Dries Buyhaart and design visionary Luke Wrobelski held keynotes on the subject. There were numerous educational seminars and many of our informal discussions also centered on mobile.

LESSONS LEARNED
With nearly 1.5 million mobile devices entering the world every day, it’s important to have high quality mobile websites. The very constraints of mobile present an opportunity for designers: limited space, reduced graphics, and fewer buttons result in a streamlined experience that better serves most users. A mobile-first approach to design allows for sites to be organized so that the most important information will be prominent, resulting in cleaner, more easily navigable websites.

Mobile devices are able to connect to a network literally anywhere, and have rich processing capabilities. But despite their high performance, 40% of web users will leave a site after three seconds, especially if they don’t get what they want or need right away. Thus, clean, tight mobile site design is imperative. In addition, mobile apps, although helpful, are not always put to use, as many mobile users still peruse the web though their phone’s browser. Facebook, for example, has 425 million users; half of them use the mobile app and half of them use regular mobile web.

In conclusion, without well-crafted mobile websites, business will suffer.

DB AND MOBILE
At DB, we are incorporating responsive design into our web design for our clients, in order to ensure optimum mobile web performance. We have built sites for clients such as Humana and Showcase Cinemas in this way, and will continue to build sites with a mobile-first approach.

At DrupalCon in Denver, DPCI, Achieve Internet and Blink Reaction were three of the vendors offering Drupal solutions for the enterprise.

Blink Reaction

Blink Reaction is an enterprise Drupal development company and an Elite Acquia Enterprise Select Partner. Blink Reaction's services include integrating Drupal with third-party applications, such as CRM, Alfresco Enterprise Content Management and Salesforce. In this expo floor video, Ray Saltini, Drupal Evangelist at Blink Reaction, explains how his company fits into DrupalCon.

Achieve Internet

Achieve Internet has built enterprise Drupal websites for big-name clients, including NBC Universal, Disney and Fast Company. In this video, Ron Huber, CEO of Achieve Internet, explains why DrupalCon is a good fit for his company.

DPCI

Joseph Bachana, President and Founder of DPCI, a content and DAM solutions provider, says that his company has a lot of experience in business challenges that need to be solved with digital asset management tools. I spoke with him at DrupalCon to find out more about the role Drupal plays in his company.

Bachana says that currently his company is working on refining the EMBridge module, which extends the image management functionalities of Drupal by connecting it to EnterMedia, an open source digital asset management platform.

He also has plans to integrate Drupal with Adobe's InDesign program and text editors, such as Microsoft Word and NeoOffice, which could be huge news for publishers. Imagine writing an article in your favorite text editor, which is connected to your Drupal site and with a few clicks the article is formatted with images out of your library and ready for the web. Then, a few clicks later, that same article is dumped into your InDesign template with a hi-res version of an image pulled from your digital asset management solution and ready to go to print.

Bachana admits that this is an ambitious project that could transform the way we publish across platforms. The challenge, he says, is scaling and getting partners who want to help out with the project. Frankly, I can't wait to see his vision become a reality, so check back for updates as his project progresses.

Training @ DrupalCon & Beyond

Wow! It's been an exciting three days so far of DrupalCon. Trainings, meetings, presentations, BOFs, keynotes, booth time, parties, and time with old (and new) friends. For me, I've been meeting partner after partner and getting excited about the year to come.

Before I get to more recap though, I want to highlight a couple events coming up in the coming weeks.

DrupalCon, the conference of users and developers of the open-source Drupal project, kicks off March 20 in Denver.

The Drupal Association, hosts of the biannual DrupalCon conference, announced the opening of its North American DrupalCon in Denver, with more than 3,000 Website designers, developers, site architects and IT managers in attendance.

The first day of full conference events at DrupalCon is March 20. Drupal is an open-source content management platform that powers millions of Websites and applications. Drupal is built, used and supported by a very active community of people from around the world, and that community comes together for DrupalCon.

The theme of DrupalCon Denver, "Collaborative Publishing for Every Device," is the subject of sessions and keynotes over three conference days. Keynote speakers include Dries Buytaert, founder of Drupal; Mitchell Baker, leader of the Mozilla Project; and design guru Luke Wroblewski speaking on mobile.

The Drupal community has grown to more than 16,000 registered developers and nearly 800,000 members around the world in 228 countries, speaking 181 languages.

The latest version of the Drupal project, Drupal 7, released just one year ago, had such a strong adoption rate that it is now the most used version of Drupal. The Drupal project now has more than 15,000 modules and 4,000 code changes per week. The millions of Websites and software applications using Drupal include everything from personal blogs to the largest enterprise applications, including Twitter, eBay, Whitehouse.gov, NASA and universities around the world.

“The Drupal open-source content management platform is going strong, and is alive and well,” said Jacob Redding, executive director of the Drupal Association, in a statement. “We’re very pleased to see the quickest version adoption rate to date for the Drupal project, and the enthusiasm for the future of Drupal is strong at DrupalCon. We have an amazing community, and we look forward to spending the week getting in touch with Drupal communities from around the world, individual developers and contributors, and sponsors that have made their businesses around Drupal because of its incredible growth potential.”

DrupalCon sessions will center on the future of the Drupal project through eight session tracks from nonprofit, government and education, to design and user experience, and business and strategy. There will be many case studies around adoption and enthusiasm for Drupal, from Martha Stewart.com, to the University of Colorado, how Drupal is transforming government, how Zagat.com went from .NET to Drupal, and even a session on using Drupal in the emergency room to improve patient experience.

A co-located event for those evaluating Drupal called "Drupal Means Business," is on Thursday, March 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will include a full day of business-focused content and is designed for colleges, universities, businesses and government agencies that would like to know more about Drupal.

Code sprints will take place throughout the week on various topics, with Friday being a full day code sprint.

DrupalCon is also the place where companies that build their businesses around Drupal come to meet others within the community, speak at sessions, look for prospective employees and showcase their offerings. Sponsors include Diamond: Acquia; Platinum: Blackmesh, Forum One Communications, Four Kitchens, Lullabot, Phase2 Technology, Trellon, Workhabit; Gold: Aten Design Group, Chapter Three, Commerce Guys and more.

The Mile High City will host about 3,000 “Drupalers” next week for a three-day geekfest.

Though just a mid-sized conference, the so-called DrupalCon will attract attendees from around the world as members of the ultra-passionate Drupal community are slated to visit from as far away as Australia.
