Drupal project management tools: time to build our own dogfood

Day:  Wednesday, 25. august 2010
Time:  14:45-15:45
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



project management | Open Atrium | documentation

Are you still not using Drupal to manage your projects? Since July 2009 excuses are running thin. And if Open Atrium didn’t do everything you ever expected from your project management system, it’s about time that we join forces and build our own dog food.

In this session I’ll present a review of Drupal built tools for project management. You'll get an introduction to Open Atrium and the tools we developed for Knowledge and Project management in Open Atrium.

After this introduction I’m going to take you down the rabbit hole and imagine a perfect world in which we have tools that do things no single generic project management tool will ever be able to do.

I’ll explain how we could build a set of community resources that will add another collaboration layer on top of our platform. Tools such as:

  • a documentation service that not only documents Drupal, but where we can share documentation for common use cases
  • a configuration dump tool that let’s you analyze and compare full site configurations
  • a federated project management tool that makes it easy for Drupal freelancers and companies to collaborate in a shared environment
