Enterprise Glue: Configuring and extending Shibboleth to integrate Drupal CMS, Python and Java web applications

Speaker(s) Gavin Jackson

This presentation looks at the architecture, configuration and extension of the Open Source Single Sign On product Shibboleth. I will discuss how we share authentication and user role/attribute details between our drupal CMS and internal Java and Python web applications, configuration of the Shibboleth IDP and SP (apache mod_shib), configuration of the drupal shib_auth module (including how to map shibboleth attributes to drupal roles). I'll also discuss extending the IDP to provide custom authentication and attribute resolution.

Drupal as an Integration Hub

Speaker(s) James Purser

We have had quite a few projects where we have used Drupal as the core of an integration star diagram. Drupal has typically owned user data and some related entities.

As the canonical source of user information, Drupal has to be able to integrate with a range of different systems - all living on different technical stacks and using a range of protocals to communicate.

Thankfully, Drupal's open source heritage and PHP implementation means that the libraries required to speak the right technical language are generally already mature and extendable.

a new bromance: Drupal and Docker

This presentation, to be delivered by a Drupal Sysadmin who - believe it or not - is not an introvert and actually likes people, will show you:

  • what docker is and why you want to use it,
  • how easy it is to start.

You might learn a few cool things you will love, e.g.

Cutting-edge theming with Aurora

Speaker(s) meeli

Aurora is our new favourite base theme at Godel. Beautifully minimalist, flexible and cutting-edge in its bundled technologies, Aurora offers a streamlined theming option for developers who are sick of default styles, cruft and old methods.

Using our company’s website as an example and also working through a basic child theme setup, this talk will explain some of the key concepts in Aurora including SASS, Bundler, Singularity Grid System, Blockify, Fences and Magic.

Maps to the max: take your maps further with region-awareness and aggregations

Speaker(s) RdeBoer

A brief tour inside and outside of Drupal, of snazzy maps and map applications, and how you can take your maps to the next level by unearthing relationships in your data that you didn't know were there.

Plenty of eye-candy but more importantly practical examples in Drupal of how you can create beautiful, information-packed maps that combine region-awareness with spreadsheet-like functionality to draw your visitors to the right areas.

Fully interactive, fully attractive.

Customise Content Using Display Suite, Panels and Panelizer

Speaker(s) Ivan Zugec

How do you customise the look and feel of an article in Drupal? You can change the order of fields and their formatters from the “Manage display” page, however, you don’t have a lot of flexibility doing it this way. If you’re a beginner and you ask “how can I change the layout on the Page content type?”, you’ll get a lot of opinions. Like many things in Drupal there are couple of ways it can be done.
