Track (Ivo)

  • What is the theme of the track?
    Difficult question, since we are actually trying to cover a really broad spectrum of topics for all
    kinds of audiences. We are still in the process of deciding on the final schedule, but there will be
    sessions on distributions (bojan -- commerce without borders), site building changes coming
    with D8 (kristof), hopefully we'll have a great case study session and so on. We do try to align
    these sessions with DrupalCon's “One to Many”-theme
  • What’s the spread of D7 vs. D8 session proposals that have come in?
    Traditionally, Site Building relies heavily on contrib, which is a bit behind the curve when it
    comes to D8 adoption, so most of the session proposals are still focused on Drupal 7. We do
    have a featured session focussing on D8


  • Bojan what’s the name of your session, and what will you be talking about?
    Commerce without borders
    I'm going to be talking about building an ecommerce solution for the global market, and all the
    problems that go with it.
    You need to deal with different languages, currencies, payment gateways, taxes and tax rates.
    You also need to think about invoices, discounts, business rules, country laws and many other
    It's funny how all this represents the hardest use case you can have, but also one of the most
    common ones,
    at least if you're in Europe.
    I will be detailing some of the solutions we’ve recently developed to make these kinds of
    problems easier to handler, and how it all fits together on top of Kickstart..
  • Kristof what is the name of your session, and what will you be talking about?
    Drupal 8 for site builders.
    So site-building is a really broad topic of course. What I’m not going to do is build a site together,
    because that’s just boring. I’m going to talk about all the major contrib modules that have moved
    into core, but also subtle small modules. And also big new features that make site building life
    much easier. The conclusion of the session will hopefully be that Ivo should not look out for
    Drupal 8 site building a lot, because Drupal 8 is going to solve everything, or at least a lot.
