Code driven development: a 100% Features based development workflow

Day:  Tuesday, 24. august 2010
Time:  10:00-10:50
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



Have you ever been frustrated by the way you and your team work with Drupal, finding yourself replicating change after change or following complex and error-prone protocols to get your latest development to that production site? Do you want to be able to reuse your settings and configuration across different projects, thus speeding up your development process? Are you looking for ways to work more efficiently with your team on a Drupal project, but haven't figured entirely how?

If so, this session is for you. We'll show you how to become the master of your Drupal site again. Building on the shoulders of Drupal modules likes Features, Chaos tool suite and Strongarm, we will show you how to develop 100% free from your database, and push your changes to your live site with a simple set of commands.

The session will be structured as following:

  • database driven vs. code driven approach in a nutshell
  • what code driven development is all about: introducing Features, Strongarm, exportables, Drush, …
  • coding conventions: make the world a better place
  • your friends hook_install() and hook_update_N()
  • the controller feature: one feature to rule them all
  • a lot of tips & tricks to take back home
