- Expressing the business model with meme maps
- From business model to listing the user roles
- Listing the user stories for each role

- From domain model to Drupal architecture and module selection
- Using the modules that come with PFT as a starting point to model the webapp

- Getting started with the PFT
The aim of the talk is to present and place in the hands of Drupal developers and users a framework they can download and use to build website applications using a workflow capable of answering the following questions in a practical manner:
- How do you know what the client wants?
- How do you know that what you are doing is what the client wants?
- How do you prototype in Drupal?
- How does the prototype become the webapp?
At the same time, the presentation marks the second generation of the Drupal application presented at Barcelona DrupalCon Barcelona 2007, in a much more usable and functional version.
