Keynote: True, real and ideal… designing for purpose, delivering with impact

Speaker(s) Harriet Wakelam

This session will examine the system of design... It will look at how we design for actions, consequences and relationships and how this makes it easier to design products and services that wow.  I am going to tell you some hard earned stories of the way I've learnt to tread the line between true and real and ideal.  How even having these conversations will change the work you are trusted to do... and what might happen if we do things properly.

2.9 million words in two months (and then what?)

Speaker(s) Peter Henderson

Most web teams face one inescapable truth - content will be late.

This session is about how the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority got on the front foot and reworked 2.9 million words in just two months.

Review, rewrite, edit, approve and publish; without cutting any corners; and with only one person to coordinate.

Learn how Drupal was used to efficiently solve this problem, and why email is the wrong tool for content development.

UX Is More than a Buzzword

Speaker(s) sleepyscene

User Experience or UX is more than a buzzword; it defines the very success of your website. The concept itself can be vague and is often pigeonholed. In this session we will learn exactly what UX is and more importantly what it isn't.

Cool story... who are you?

My name is Callum and I'm a unicorn designer / developer. I'm also the User Experience and Interface Designer over at *woof*.

Session Overview

Site administrators deserve a good UX too


It’s all very well to satisfy the usability needs of the end users, but when it comes to doing that and keeping costs down, it’s often the site administrators that suffer. All too often shortcuts are taken to get your custom Drupal backend to just-working rather than actually user-friendly - leading to clients who hate managing their websites and think that they don’t work as they should.

Panel: Content strategy

Drupal is a content management system - so why do so many of us ignore content during the planning and building process?

Whether you're a client or vendor, chances are you could use some help in the content strategy area.

This is a panel discussion where the panelists can give a brief intro into the benefits of this often overlooked component of a Drupal project. Discussion can then move on to strategy and practical techniques for managing content strategy.
