Leveraging Drupal for your businessLeveraging Drupal for your business
Use Drupal to power your business: Hear case studies and learn about adapting to open-source technology.

Drupal is an incredible tool that powers a tremendous range of successful websites. However, getting what's right for your website can be overwhelming; especially when Drupal makes so much possible. And, no matter what the size of your project relative to the size of your organization, it will involve at least some time, money and effort, none of which are good to waste.

If Drupal looks like a fit for your organization, this session should help prepare you to make the leap. Topics this panel will cover include:

  • Articulating your goals
  • Evaluating the project and determining needs
  • Preparing your team
  • Deciding to learn Drupal or hire experts (or both)
  • Assembling your team(s)
  • Making sure you have a process (any process)
  • Budgets and timeline management and expectations
  • Other tips and tricks, and plenty of time for Q & A
Experience: Beginner, Intermediate
Industry: education, entertainment, library, marketing, media, non-profit

I love these guys. You should happily pay to hear what they have to say.

I don't know; they're alright, I guess. (and by alright I mean they are some of the best representatives of leading Druapl shops).
