Hello DrupalCon! Have you arrived yet? DrupalCon Portland starts officially tomorrow but come and get your badges and awesome t-shirts.

Hey developers ~ new, experienced or otherwise, undecided!

Drupal is one of the most prominent content management systems and is used by about 2.1% of all websites worldwide. Alex Fisher, a native of Dearborn, Michigan was able to build a business with six employees by designing websites using Drupal. Commercial Progression counts organizations like National Geographic Channel, TRW Automotive, the University of Michigan, and Detroit Public TV as customers.

Fisher worked at Ford’s communications division for 7 years while attending school at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. This is when Ford used to have a TV network with several channels broadcasting programs demonstrating how to fix and sells cars. After working at Ford, Fisher joined a company called Move Networks, but was laid off along with many other employees in 2009. This is when Fisher decided to take the plunge and start his own company with a $4,000 investment of his own money.

DrupalCon Portland 2013

DrupalCon is an international event that brings together the people who use, develop, design, and support the Drupal platform. More than just another trade show or industry conference, it’s a shared experience that seeks to inspire and engage. DrupalCon Portland will feature dozens of curated sessions and panels from some of the most influential people and brightest minds within the Drupal community and beyond, as well as countless opportunities for networking, code sprints, informal conversations, and more.

What is DrupalCon?

Those of us getting really excited that it is almost time for DrupalCon again sometimes need to explain to our friends, colleagues, or family members what all the fuss is about.

Explaining DrupalCon

Have you ever had trouble putting it into words? "Yeah, Mom, we sit in rooms together and write code! ... Yes, I do that all year ... Yes, I talk to these people online all the time ... But DrupalCon is incredible because it's so ... y'know, great! I met Dries! I committed a patch with Webchick!"

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.
