Wow...Already Time for the 2nd Drupal Show & Tell for 2016!

Hi everyone,

Yes, it's already time for our second Drupal Show & tell for the year! So, let's get the date in the diary for Thursday 18th February!

After a rocking Drupal Show & Tell for January, we can promise you another great line up for February! So, thank you to everyone who presented, for those of you who attended and for all your feedback!

So, who have we got lined up for the next event....? We have already got our first speaker confirmed, Chandeep Khosa!

Chandeep will be giving an insightful and informative talk on “Drupal Features module : fail to plan, plan to fail” 

Sounds intriguing, so, 'what's it all about?' I hear you say? Chandeep will be focussing on some very interesting areas, such as planning how to split your site’s components, naming conventions along with dependencies and providing developer documentation. He will also discuss ways to audit other developers work, re-configure and test features!

Already, looking like an interesting and exciting talk there from Chandeep. 

We now have our second talk confirmed which will be delivered by Jonathan Laventhol, Information Director & Dominic Starkey, Head of Software, Solarcentury.

Jonathan and Dominic will be focussing on "Drupal in the enterprise: winning the argument about open source".

"Open source and web technologies have conquered an incredible amount of business-to-business and business-to-customer communications.  Almost all startups are implemented with pure cloud infrastructure.  Stubbornly holding out are large organisations and their internal communications -- despite the outstanding flexibility, time-to-market, and low costs of these systems.  Our Drupal-based enterprise communications tool has just been launched, and our talk will cover its inception and the many barriers to adoption for our firm, a leading supplier of industrial-scale solar power technology."

We also now have our final talk scheduled which will be delivered by Giuliano Senatore.  Giuliano is a student in his final year. He will be presenting on his final year project where he has created a fab family photo sharing site using Drupal which will focus in particular on Organic Groups. Sounds great!

We have three fantastic talks lined up for you all, so why not come along and join us!

For people who don't know the format, we meet the Clarence Centre in a room generously lent to us by South Bank University. Tea, coffee and sandwiches will be provided and then we'll head over to the Duke of York on Borough Road for a few beers and more Drupal chat.

If you'd like to speak at this event or a future one, please do get in touch. The only criteria is that your talk is on the topic of Drupal and not a sales pitch, so plenty of scope for you there!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

All the best

    Thanks Cameron and Wilding for sponsoring this meetup! Giuliano gave a good introduction to the complicated Organic Groups module.

    Chandeep's sharing on the Features module was helpful as it touched on many aspects of that module that a lot of us had been secretly struggling with. It was great discussing problems so we could find solutions together!

    Great Drupal meetup last night guys. Thanks for organising another one. I found Chandeep's session on pre-planning for developing with Features especially enlightening as it's an area I struggle with a lot. I'd have really liked to hear more detailed discussion on a step-by-step process for resolving problems with Features Overrides – something I've struggled with a lot in the past.

    I'm really looking forward to sharing my experiences & best practices of using Features. I have made my talk accessible to different skill and experience levels. Hope to see you there :)
