Drupal is a great tool and brings joy and happines when you get your hands on it for the first time. But the real fun with Drupal begins with an opportunity to work on enterprise-scale projects.However, to come into a position to do such projects, you need a company structure behind you.

I would like to share some first-hand experiences and information, like:

Tags: 
taxonomies, vocabularies, search, thesauri, annotations

Domain specific enterprise taxonomies (build on SKOS Thesauri, see: Wikipedia, SKOS) can be used instead / in conjunction of well known and used Drupal taxonomies. Using such enterprise taxonomies enables additional power in the form of semantic services for Drupal features as e.g. for glossary services, semantic search, automatic (semantic) annotation, matchmaking or recommender services, topic pages or news aggregation features (beside others).

The efficient and sustainable management of our available resources like energy, water and/or food concerns all of us! Thereby the awareness-raising of sustainable development mechanisms is an issue for decision makers, policy makers and / or project developers. And thereby needs to be reflected also by the respective information management strategies and information services that are provided.

... or how I learned to stop worrying and love Drupal installation profiles.

Installation profiles are very powerful for building Drupal websites.

But to use this power properly, you need to understand how it works, technically, and then apply best practices (drush make, features, migrate...) to avoid pitfalls and problems that can undermine the value of your product.

REST, decoupled Drupal, backbone.js, node.js
Schedule: Friday, 11:00 in room Wunderkraut

Drupal is a fantastic platform to build all kinds of solutions, but like all systems it also has its limits, and it makes sense to integrate with additional systems to be able to provide to go past these limits. Many of these external systems are based on Javascript, whether it's to build real-time backend services with node.js, mobile apps with PhoneGap or complex user interfaces with backbone.js.

Drupal distributions provide turnkey solutions for specific use cases, like shop systems, project management tools or jobboards. They allow you to quickly set up complex websites without the need to install and configure every module on your own.
On the other hand implementing and maintaining Drupal distributions takes a lot of time, so how can Drupal shops benefit from publishing their distributions?

search, Views
Schedule: Friday, 16:30 in room webshapers

Having an efficient and helpful search is one of the backbones of nearly all web sites, ensuring that visitors will quickly find what they are looking for without leaving the site. For three years now, the Search API module has helped site builders to achieve that goal, and an increasing number of extension modules provides help for solving both common and more specific problems, from facetting to location filters.
