It’s been a couple of months since we delivered our (occasionally divisive) DrupalCamp London talk. So we’re delighted to be giving a slightly updated version of the presentation on May 19 at Drupal Show & Tell.
We’re always up for sharing our Drupal thoughts - which is why we’re heading to the brilliant Drupal Show & Tell in London on May 19. A great opportunity to learn and share ideas, our talk will be following on from our DrupalCamp London 2016 talk "The Drupal Elephant in the Room: We need to get better at UX".
Myself and strategist Lizzie Hodgson will once again deliver the presentation, drawing on a few examples of how the Drupal community is responding to the issues touched upon in the original talk.
Why this talk:
Inspired by Dries Buytaert’s Keynote in Barcelona 2015 Lizzie and I felt it important to wanted to explore the discussion around design, and crucially, the wider impact of user experience (UX) for Drupal. The result was this talk.
We’ve been here before:
Five Mile did a Drupal Show and Tell on UX back in November 2013. Even then the feedback and response following that talk surprised us in that out of those attending, our approach to interface development wasn’t ‘typical’. It’ll be interesting to see how the audience responds this time round.
Fancy some background reading?
You can read more about our original talk and check out the slides here. That said, while our talk will be similar in approach and topic, there will be some additional elements that we think are important to cover.
Chandeep Khosa, from Imagine Creativity, will also be presenting a case study on Creative Carers - a membership association website for carers. His talk will focus on how to build an activity booking system with Entity Registration module, handling recurring dates with Date Repeat Entity module and handling different roles.
Chandeep will also go through building the registration form with Profile2 and importing users with User Import plus deliver a demonstration of how the site section colour was changed with Contexts, and overrode default functionality with String Overrides & Better Exposed Filters.
