Open Source Marketing Automation

Mautic is an open source marketing automation platform and one of the “best kept secrets'' in the industry. With Mautic, you can manage campaigns, track visitors on websites, display personalized content dynamically, and integrate with many other systems (including Drupal). Get big budget functionality out of an open source tool that anyone can use. This session will show you:

  • What Mautic is and how it works
  • Why it is such a great companion to Drupal
  • Why Mautic is a perfect choice for your organization
  • How agencies can expand their offerings using the same tech stack
  • How you can help the community

The Mautic community is much smaller than Drupal so there are many opportunities to have a big impact. With world class features like a visual, drag/drop journey builder and contact segmentation, the project packs a massive amount of power into a widely accessible PHP based project.

What is Acquia CMS, and how can it help me?

Acquia Lightning is EOL with Drupal 8, and now there is this new “Acquia CMS” for Drupal 9. There have been lots of questions about how this can be used, and how it can help you build better Drupal 9 applications, Join us to learn:

  • How Lightning did what it was intended to do
  • What Acquia CMS is for
  • How to use Acquia CMS (or parts of it)
  • How you can make it your own

The good news is that there is a lot of great stuff here that anyone can use, whether they are an Acquia customer or not. Like with Lightning, we are hoping to help drive innovation in the community and make it easier to create amazing applications with Drupal.

No code, Low code, and High code - oh my!

The “software crisis” outlined in 1968 was answered by component based development. So, why are we still having those same problems? The software industry has been struggling with outmoded ideas about how to build applications. Drupal provides a modular based framework that provides the perfect foundation for component based assembly models. In this session, we will discuss:

  • What components actually are
  • The 3 basic assembly modes
  • How to know which mode to use, and when
  • How to use low code and decoupled together
  • Why Drupal is the best tool regardless of approach

While Drupal provides one of the best frameworks for any application, it is usually less about the technology and more about the mindset. With the right approach you can build better applications in less time, innovate more quickly, and reduce your technical debt.
