Drupal Show and Tell

So the end of the year is rapidly coming our way and we felt it would be good to go out with a bang for the last Drupal Show and Tell of 2014.


Our friends at MTV were up for hosting so we’re a little bigger than normal (120 spaces) in a great venue, near Camden. We’ve gone for a media theme and so don’t only have the fantastic MTV presenting but also BAFTA with their brand new Drupal based website and the British Film Institute, long time users of Drupal.


Come along for nibbles and drinks (kindly provided by MTV) and three fantastic presentations on a range of Drupal related topics. The Show and Tells are always nice informal get togethers for a broad audience including people assessing Drupal, agencies, freelancers and users of Drupal.


Its a great place to learn more, discuss, question and mingle in the Drupal world.


When: November 13th at 6.30pm to 9pm


Where: 17-29 Hawley Crescent London NW1 8TT

MTV <3 Drupal


MTV UK have been using Drupal since 2006, from consumer-facing websites to providing data feeds which power real-time on-screen graphics for 20 TV channels across Viacom International Media Networks. We'll discuss some of the more exotic places Drupal touches our business, and how standardising on Drupal has enabled us to scale and meet ever-changing business and consumer demands across multiple brands and territories.

Capturing Diverse Audiences

When people think BAFTA, they usually think Awards and red carpets, but the British Academy of Film and Television Arts is so much more than that. We hold over 220 events each year and aim to give our members, the industry and the public a chance to learn first-hand from leading practitioners in the film, television and games sectors.

As such we have an important message to push and a diverse audience to reach, a necessity which has resulted in a major renovation of our key public facing websites which now exist happily within a Drupal framework. During this session we will discuss the audience driven approach towards this project.

The Greatest Documentaries of All Time

The BFI's mission is to ensure that film is central to our cultural life, in particular by supporting and nurturing the next generation of filmmakers and audiences. The BFI serves a public role which covers the cultural, creative and economic aspects of film in the UK.

Sight & Sound, the monthly film magazine published by the BFI, periodically runs landmark polls of critics and filmmakers to discover what are considered to be the greatest films of all time.  This year the magazine ran a poll to find the greatest documentaries ever made, with the results published during the summer.

The process of gathering votes from hundreds of film professionals, matching the votes to our database of over a million film & TV titles and publishing the results in print and online in interesting and engaging ways presented a real challenge.  We'll talk about the Drupal-based system we built to handle this and how it greatly improved upon previous systems.

    Looks like it was a good one, which unfortunately I couldn't make in the end. Were the talks recorded (like usual)? :-)

      It definitely was. Andy Read was filming as usual, Rob Davis will be editing the footage and it will soon be posted.. although there really is nothing quite like being there!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
