We have Great speakers coming this year to our conference. Here is a spotlight on one of them.
Oscar Merida been working with PHP and the LAMP stack since 2000. He’s built websites for small and large non-profits and associations, worked on the digital media team at DC United, the pro-soccer team in DC, joined a start up in 2012, before co-founding Musketeers.me. Currently, he’s the editor-in-chief for php[architect] magazine and books, which means he gets to read a lot of great PHP stuff for work.
Oscar will be speaking on: Staying sane with Drupal (a PHP Developer’s Survival Guide)
Drupal is a powerful content management framework and among the most succesful PHP projects out there. Working with Drupal’s modules and theme layer means that for any problem there’s more than one way to that that. Picking a good solution, or dealing with the choices of previous developers will make you pull your hair out. I’ll look at what you can do to make working with Drupal – shall we say – enjoyable? We’ll look at how to evaluate contributed modules, what modules should be in all your installations, examine coding conventions in Drupal, and talk about development best practices for Drupal sites.
