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.
