Drupal Camp LA 2008
Notes and code from my DrupalCampLA2008 presentation From Business Objects and User Stories to Drupal Website ApplicationMon, 2008-09-15 11:03 — victorkane
Here are the presentation notes from my presentation on the last day of DrupalCampLA 2008 (an incredible event, by the way, kudos to the organizers!):
From Business Objects and User Stories to a fully functional test-driven website application
The talk was about this:
Asynchronous Data Processing
100 Websites and Lots of Stats
Shaun Haber & Ethan Kaplan from the Tech Department of Warner Brother Records
87 sites with 87 databases in a single Drupal environment and lots of data.
A single huge multisite setup. Drupal 5.
Multisite: sharing the same code base and share modules, but each site has its own database, containing a lot of info valuable for data mining, including number of users, etc.
They don't deal with shared databases.
3 Months Later: An (Almost) Beginners View of Drupal
[My own rough notes to this presentation, very interesting in terms of insight into how people actually use Drupal to construct web applicatoins. A lot of people had left by the time this presentation started, but hopefully the video will enable it to be seen by more Drupaleros]
Making an E-commerce website from scratch with Ubercart
Presentation by Aaron Schiff
(rough notes... read at your own risk )
For beginners who want to start an E-commerce site.
Magento too new, buggy, too slow, without framework like Drupal
Drupal E-commerce... API strong, but not very good out of the box, buggy...
Started with alpha release, very easy to upgrade so far, fantastic community (Aaron has no affiliation with them).
Secure code, robust taxonomy. upsell, secure pages (https), coupon, checkout enhancement
Not available for Drupal 6 until end of year, but someone pointed out that there is a not for production development version.
Attached are the supporting code and presentation files from "jQuery + Drupal", from this morning's 11:00 session at DrupalCampLA2008.
If I left anything out, or something is unclear, just leave a comment.
Here is the README.txt from the tarball:
