You're a PHP developer and one day a Drupal project lands on your desk. This talk will show you how to start off on the right foot. From planning and setup, to building and maintaining a solid Drupal project. Ian and Ross have been building Drupal websites for over 6 years and look forward to sharing their trials and tribulations.
