Introducing Drupal

If you're new to Drupal, whether a developer trying to figure Drupal out or a decision maker wishing to learn whether Drupal is right for your next project, this this is the track for you.

We'll cover all of the basics. And try to get you ready for some of the other tracks — and ready to choose Drupal!

*Track chair: Boris Doesborg*

Theming, Design & Usability

This is the track for those of you who focus on usability, UX, web design and theming. Sessions might include: "2010 web design trends", "HTML and CSS hacks" or "How to make a usable comment form".

So if you wish to touch up on your theming skills or want to know about Drupal and HTML5, join us!

Code & Development

Code in core and code in contribution. This track is where you go to get to know more about code architecture, new technologies and visions. This could be anything from an "Introduction to OOP in D7" to "Varnish configuration" to a "how to match MongoDB and Drupal" - session. Sessions about code-based performance enhancements fit in this track as well.

We will also cover some tips on how to configure your site to perform optimally.
