Drupal Presentation Evening - Wed 21 Nov 2012 - 7pm to 10pm - Kavli bldg. IOA

  • Nov 21, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • Institute of Astronomy (IOA)

Drupalcambs invites you to join us for our Presentation Evening. Our main presentation will be: "Four awesome base themes for Drupal 7". See details of presentations below. New members are very welcome.

Four awesome base themes for Drupal 7 (David Thorne) - this is our main presentaion for the evening.

Base themes give us a foundation for faster and easier Drupal theming by allowing us to create sub themes that inherit the parent base theme's capabilities.

David Thorne will speak about theming/skinning your Drupal website and compare the following four popular base themes: Omega, Zen, Fusion and Adaptive Theme.

Insight: Client engagement and my web design process (Anthony Albertyn)

This is a lightning talk on how I manage the design communication and delivery process from initial client contact to invoicing and post sales follow up. This will be useful to anyone who works in a small team or independently for themselves, but it could equally be applicable for larger teams (with adjustment) too.

Questions and Answers session

This will be an open discussion where you will get an opportunity to "ask the experts" questions and as a group we will try and answer them. This is a great way to learn something new!

Update: Design Essentials for Coders (Steve O'Connor) - this presentation by Steve has unfortunately been postponed due to illness.

The visual design of a website takes more creative skill than writing the underlying code, right?

Wrong. Coders are creative too! In this presentation, Steve O'Connor will show you how you can apply visual design basics without once looking at colour palettes or Photoshop, but looking at the aspects that support and enhance a sites functionality.

With over 10 years as a visual designer behind him, Steve has had a diverse experience with graphic and web design. He is currently immersed in mobile application design working at Airsource Limited.

This is our last meetup for 2012 and we look forward to seeing you all there!


Anthony Albertyn and Jeff Veit


Directions: From M11, junction 13, follow the A1303 (Madingley Road) towards town. Take the second entrance to the Institute of Astronomy and follow the Drupal signs to the Kavli building.

    Very interesting talk by Anthony, and a nice summary of themes by David. I see I've underestimated Adaptive before now...

    Hi there, as mentioned, Steve can't do his presentation tonight because of illness. David is still doing his talk and I am also going to do a presentation. My topic is Insight: Client engagement and my web design process. See you tonight!
