For January's talk night, we'll be doing an evening of short "lightning" talks, each of which should be a maximum of 10 minutes each.
This is a great way to see talks about a series of topics in the same evening, and a great chance for first-time or relatively new speakers to get involved.
If you would like to submit a talk, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Temple Studios, Temple Gate, Bristol BS1 6QA.
We’re looking for five or six speakers. Here's who and what we have so far:
Tom Metcalfe - Drupal integrations are hard
Lessons learned from a few SOAP integrations with CRMs.
Alex Martin - Scaling high-traffic Drupal sites
…getting it all working/cache flushing together on some big festival sites without requiring ridiculously high-powered servers.
Adrian Bateman - Using a component library to deliver markup
What is a component library?
Who might need one? (Quick answer - anyone who wants consistent styling on multiple websites.)
Some of the challenges for Drupal.
Nigel Dunn - PHP Namespaces
- what they are
- their importance in modern PHP
- use in Drupal 8
- use in Drupal 7
- some implications
Tom Sibson - Paragraphs module
Parallax paragraphs! A quick talk on how Positive empowered the content creators of a well known charity to build ad-hoc, campaign driven, parallax single page applications on their existing drupal site with out help from our devs.
Toby Brancher - Front-end architect meets Drupal. You won't believe what happens next!
A quick share of some useful approaches and tactics for minimising the markup and bloat that comes from Drupals accommodating defaults.
