Building a successful Drupal website or platform often involves a lot of configuration & modeling on the needs of the folks who will be using the site & how the content they are producing is exposed.
Who are these ‘end users’ we refer to? They are generally just good people who want to easily get work done & we’ve been those people - in Drupal 5, Drupal 6 & Drupal 7.
This session will focus on strategies & tips drawn from what ‘end users’ need & then explore some Drupal Examples of how to configure Drupal to be more end user focused:
“I’d like to not be able to accidentally delete or mess up my content”
“I’d like automated filtering to be able to find content I need to edit”
“Drag & Drop everywhere!!”
“What does this revert button do and how do I NEVER have to see it again”
We'll cover these, we'll share some embarassing drupal admin stories, and last but not least - we'll talk about how Drupal 8 has incorporated many of these ideas into core making the 'end user' experience all the better.
