Demoing Drupal to potential clients especially newcomers to the platform isn't easy. Let's face it: the out of the box experience of stock Drupal is pretty bland and it's not always feasible to walk folks through previous client work, especially when if they'd like to check out the content authoring and workflow experiences, or advanced features like integration with third party services.
So how can we demo the best Drupal can offer from both the front and back end (responsive layouts and media! in-place-editing! social media integrations! editorial workflows and scheduling!) without having to build custom proofs of concept per client, or worse resorting to annotated images or 'just imagine' wireframes? What if we could show a client what Drupal could do, live, at the start?
Enter Demo Framework (https://drupal.org/project/df) a new distribution of Drupal built from the ground up just for demoing the best of Drupal's features, capabilities and strengths, packing the best of contrib into an extensible, adaptable framework. We'll talk about what makes Demo Framework great, how it's helped drive some of the most high profile Drupal launches in the last year, and how you can use it in your day to day practice.
Kieran Lal and David Hwang will present and demo the Demo Framework distribution that has been used to win some of the largest industry leading WCMS evaluations.
