Drupal Show and Tell


Ark multi-site platformLeo Woods, Simon Williams and Alex Barlow from will tell us all about a single Drupal install that builds, deploys and content manages individual school sites currently over 35 unique sites. The CMS itself has within it the ability to spawn new sites at will, built from an initial content template. Users can be assigned to each domain. Centralised news and job vacancy systems allow content to be shared across schools and from the ARK central website. Some examples can be viewed here: and

Procedural vs Object-Oriented programming. Our own Gorka will show an object oriented approach of Drupal development. Procedural vs OO programming, benefits and problems of each of them. Examples of how data abstraction and inheritance can help us to write a reusable code, clean and with conceptual coherence. We will talk also about some common patterns and their application in a real website. 

The Tincan team (Michael Kent, Jason Dean) will cover Using Drupal, CMIS and Alfresco for digital asset management. Alfresco is a great tool for asset management, CMIS provides a way to access Alfresco's document library using an open standard and publish assets to the web and Drupal provides us with an excellent interface between Alfresco, CMIS and the content editor. We'll be walking through how we used all three on a recent extranet project.

    Hullo Drupalers,

    Drupal mentoring (site building) in London 20 - 31 Oct

    I need some help mentoring some young people (17 - 19) in Drupal site building this week and next. It is part of their pre-apprenticeship training. The training is planned and facilitated - the mentors are just there to answer any questions that might come up or show the guys round a site you have built recently. There is WiFi and it is possible to do some work at teh same time as mentoring.

    If you can spare half a day this week or next please get in touch with me here or on twitter @crispin_read. Alternatively you can just add your name to the rota here:
