Beginner
Tags: 
Symfony2
Schedule: Friday, 14:00 in room Zensations

Symfony 2 has had a profound impact on the PHP world since well before the initial stable release, and its components have since been picked up as building blocks by many open source projects. Take a look at how Symfony Components can be of use to you, and how they make your life easier in migrating legacy projects towards a modern architecture.

A physical/mobile customer loyalty solution built in Drupal

Kristof
Van Tomme
Track: 
Frontend & Design, Site Building, Business
Experience level: 
Intermediate
Tags: 
Mobile

In this session I will demonstrate a showcase of how you could use Drupal as the backend for a loyalty card solution that uses mobile devices for point management.

I'll talk about the free QR Kiosk app that integrates with Drupal to scan and only open those QR codes that encode URLs that lead to a specified site.

I will probably present this with a colleague, but I need to confirm with him, but wanted to get the session in before the deadline (I'm at Badcamp so it's still the 24th ;)

Rules Square(d)

Antonio
Almeida
Track: 
Coding & Development
Experience level: 
Advanced
Tags: 
rules, Drupal 8, Nginx, Lua, REST, API based web application

If I recall correctly Drupal 8 had the ambitious goal of being API driven. Multiple components talking themselves between them via those APIs. But the road taken turned out to be different. That does not mean that even though the API road was not taken we cannot travel on it.

Deploy continuously

Clemens
Helm
Track: 
Coding & Development
Experience level: 
Intermediate
Tags: 
automation, best practices, cloud products, JavaScript, developer, security
Schedule: Friday, 16:30 in room vi knallgrau

As developers we love to build web sites. We love to code, we love to make things work and look nice. But things get tedious once we need to put our sites online. Will everything work? How can we check if we didn't break anything?

In this talk I will introduce you to "Continuous Deployment". I will show you how to test web sites automatically just by writing down how they should work. Everytime you make a little change to a web site, these tests will check if everything still works as it should. And if everything works, your changes go live immediately.

Walkthrough madness: an introduction to all the amazing things you can do with a WalkHub + Belgian Chocolate

Kristof
Van Tomme
Track: 
Business
Experience level: 
Intermediate
Tags: 
Walkthrough, documentation, tutorials
Schedule: Friday, 11:00 in room vi knallgrau

Imagine you could send your users a hyperlink that starts up a step by step walkthrough tutorial for pretty much any process they want to do on your site. Imagine you could embed those links into your documentation or even in a special contextual help block you display on your site. Imagine further that you can record how a feature works that you have just developed, or that your customer could send you a link to a walkthrough that reproduces a bug they've found.

That is exactly what you can do with the WalkHub Drupal module.
