Build a better Drupal team

Speaker(s) Emma Davidson

Based on ideas discussed at a 2014 DrupalACT session, and 15 years experience as a software development project manager and team coordinator in both government and private sector.

Aimed at Drupal developer shops and in-house Drupal dev teams, this session will show you who you need in your team (clue: it's not a code ninja/rockstar/unicorn), how to find them, how to get them into your team (more than just money), and how to get your team to produce its best work.

The DrupalCI initiative

Speaker(s) nick_schuch

SLIDES CAN BE FOUND HERE: http://ds2015.nickschuch.com

This session is all about an adhoc initiative with the goal of improving the testing situation on Drupal.org.

This talk will outline:

  • Drupal.org pain points.
  • The components of DrupalCI (API, dispatcher, results, Drupal.org module and monitoring). Each of these components will be separate open source projects that you can leverage as well!
  • How you can help.

You could say this talk is going to cover all the latest hotness in continuous integration.
