DrupalCon Latin America 2015 Bogotá will live on as one of the classics

Grass roots enthusiasm, D8 teen spirit, much needed long absent leadership and community courage facing up to critical issues should overflow into DrupalCon Los Angeles in May

An incredible DrupalCon, DrupalCon Latin America, ended a couple weeks ago and I haven't seen any cool DrupalCon wrap-ups capable of really sharing with the rest of the Drupal community what an extremely well-organized and just plain special community experience it was. I am sure I'm not the only one who felt completely invigorated by it all. Let's take a look at why, and see how we can make it contagious.

Great Venue
Attendees from all over
Quality of presentations
Drupal 8 properly positioned
Now we know when to start switching to D8
Much Needed Drupal leadership
Huge participation in the Sprints and beyond

Desgrabación de mi presentación sobre DurableDrupal Lean UX+Dev+DevOps Drupalcon Latin America

Desgrabación de la Presentación en el DrupalCon Latin America 2015

Poner en pie una fábrica de DurableDrupal (Drupal Duradero) en base de un proceso Lean reutilizable

[Bajar el pdf de 18 páginas al pie de la página]

Ya que el sonido de la grabación de mi presentación quedó muy bajo en volumen, quiero presentar la desgrabación con la esperanza de que mi mensaje llegue a la mayor cantidad de personas posible.

El video de la presentación en sí se encuentra aquí: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNbkBvtQ8Z0

Los diapositivas: http://awebfactory.com/drupalcon2015lean/#/

Para cada diapositiva, incluyo a continuación el link al slide y el texto correspondiente del video.

En algunos casos hay correcciones inevitables o he extendido el texto para su mejor comprensión. También he traducido diapositivas importantes y agregado algunos comentarios para incluir puntos de suma importancia que no fueron mencionados en la presentación por falta de tiempo, como el Kanban y sus características.

El artículo como consecuencia se extiende bastante, pero espero que resulte de utilidad para quienes se interesan por la cuestión del proceso Lean en los desarrollos con Drupal.

Mi plan es publicar en breve un libro que integre estos conceptos en la práctica con un ejemplo concreto de desarrollo de una aplicación web en Drupal 7 y 8.

Setting up a Reusable and DurableDrupal Lean Process Factory - Presentation 2/11/2015 at DrupalCon Latin America 2015

[para español ver más abajo]

The purpose of the presentation was to describe how to use reusable tools and processes, tailored and in constant evolution, in order to finally defeat waterfall and guarantee delivered value in the development of websites and web applications.

The following main topics were covered in depth:

  • Kanban (not Scrum)
  • Project Inception and Vision
  • Team Kickoff
  • Development Workflow with Everything in Code
  • DevOps, Server Provisioning and Deployment
  • User Validation

This is a huge amount of material, based on both my successful and unsuccessful experiences, and I earnestly hope it will help other web centered knowledge workers. If you have questions, please ask them on twitter @victorkane with hashtag #DurableDrupalLean.
There were quite a few other fascinating and very good presentations on the subject of Process and DevOps, overlapping my own substantially and it should be very worthwhile to share them here:
I greatly appreciate having had the opportunity to present at this incredibly important, fun and well-organized DrupalCon. See you all in Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro!

Historic DrupalCon Amsterdam 2014 - Let's get to the bottom of Headless Drupal

Let the Debates Begin - Part II

Intro

Whatever it is, and in this article we are going to venture a proposal for a canonical definition, Headless Drupal seems to synthesis a heartfelt need in the context of the current Drupal problematic. It has been a hot subject for quite some time now, with an active group presence on Drupal Groups, and with a veritable avalanche of articles and presentations. Barring the obvious number one topic of Drupal 8 (which we'll debate in the next article in this series) and successfully competing with "the new PHP" itself as a center of interest, it was really the number one topic at DrupalCon Amsterdam 2014, with training, presentations and at least one very important BOF:

Historic DrupalCon Amsterdam 2014 - Let the Debates Begin - Part I

I really think that a debate needs to continue around Keynote: Dries Buytaert for the purpose of understanding the forces at work competing for the future of Drupal and indeed all open source projects. Leaving to one side without comment the really weird Dries doppelganger designed somehow to elevate the image of one of the sponsors, it was indeed saluted by many as being very special. A glance at the tweets feed for the keynote, for example, (or this one) were by and large ecstatic, and many interpreted the talk as exceedingly progressive. "The power of the people"... #digitaldisruption... "This is @Dries most socialist #Driesnote ever." "Applause even in the overflow room..." "Most relevant and interesting #DriesNote in a long time. Well done..." "Exciting. The best Dries keynote ever."
