Building Conference & Event Websites in Drupal with COD

Configuration, Set-Up & Performance

Building Conference & Event Websites in Drupal with COD

Day:  Wednesday, 25. august 2010
Time:  17:15-18:00
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



Come see why Drupal is the best platform for building conference and event websites that meet the needs of attendees, event organizers and sponsors!

In this session we'll build a conference website from scratch that provides robust features including:

  • Proposing and voting on sessions
  • Setting a session schedule for the event and for each attendee
  • Making it easy for attendees to register, pay and provide profile information
  • Managing a waiting list of attendees
  • Collecting and displaying sponsor information

We'll see how Drupal's Conference Organizing Distribution (COD) can help get a conference site up and running quickly, allowing event organizers to focus on running the event and personalizing the site, and allowing attendees to participate actively before, during and after the event!

We'll also see how COD was used to build other conference websites, like DrupalCamp Colorado 2010, and an upcoming conference for the Meego open source project.

Usually one of the stoppers for getting a conference / camp up and running quickly is the whole website thingie, its kinda strange with the amount of camps the Drupalcommunity are doing each week that this havnt been done before.
